I know I don’t post nearly at all as much as I used to but here goes a tiny update.
I did my longest run since May!!! I just have stopped running long, so the longest runs I’ll do might be 7 or maaaaaaybe 8 miles. The Brooklyn Half was the longest I had run since! HA. I decided I’d try to do 10 or 12 so I joined the JackRabbit group, out of the Upper East Side, how convenient, as they had a 12 mile run to the High Bridge. I had seen it in pictures and I knew it had just reopened but I don’t go to the Bronx ever so I thought it’d be the perfect run. Kent took us out at a FUN (perfect) pace and the group (8? 10?) managed to stay together throughout! It was awesome. Check how cool it looks!
We then run back. I was EXHAUSTED. 13 feels like 20 when you’re not used to it. Or forget to bring gels or have any breakfast. Still, success!
It was the Bronx 10 mile and 5K. EVERYONE I knew was racing, including my husband so we woke up early, got the BX in no time and I set out to cheer. I am a pro by now. I had SOOO much fun.
Almost unthinkable that I was in the same spots, twice in 24 hours, but that’s life… that was my weekend! How was yours???
