Last week when I knew I would be in CT this weekend at my in laws, I emailed Clare to see if she wanted to get together for a run. She did some research to find a place we could run that was halfway for both of us. We ran on this railroad path in Ridgefield, a town I had never been to before that was supercute! We parked in a lot and ran to the path, ran to the end of the trail and ran back. It turned out being around 5.5 miles and was a nice run. I wanted to get in 10 miles because next weekend I am running the Philly distance run so I ran down Main Street in Ridgefield, which was scenic and nice. There were many people out walking and jogging and I exchanged many morning waves with other runners. All in all, a nice morning run, and it was cool to meet Clare! We are both teachers, runners and moms, so we had alot to talk about : )
On next Sunday's 1/2 marathon, I am nervous that I am going to go slower than my 4 months pregnant time from last year...I have not trained fast and motivation has been low. I need to suck it up and realize how lucky I am to be running! When I was pregnant I could not wait to sweat out a workout or be sore, and now I am thinking about how it was nice to have an excuse when I was pregnant. It's always greener on the other side, right?
Why is it that I eat really well when I am not at home?
I am eating tons of veggies and fruits and no junk.
