Race Recap!

12 Jul

Hello all!

Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to the weekend, what do you have on deck?

Last night was the 3rd of the Thursday Night Race Menu Summer Series along the Charles in Boston.  There are 6 total races starting in May through the end of September. It is really great because you run the same course each time, so you can really track your progress.  They have great freebies and a fun after party sponsored by a different brewery each time at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square.  The next race is August 8th-sign up if you are looking for a fun low key 5K!

J and I made it to all 3 so far-and had a blast at them all. Last night, J improved his time by 2 minutes, HUGE in a 5k!  I was the first female overall woo hoo 🙂  I ran 19:24, a bit slower than last time but I was fine with it considering the Crossfit workout the day before involved thrusters (hamstrings and quad’s burning!).  I won a box of Kind bars in Almond, Walnut, Macadamia, +protein. I tried one last night, and they are pretty good! I also got a free sample of the new Dark Chocolate, Nuts and Sea Salt bar which I am dying to try post workout today!  I’ll let you know how it is.

In other news, Casey went swimming for the first time this week! We took her to Rexhame beach in Marshfield and then to Bare Cove Park in Hingham. She was a little afraid of the waves at Rexhame, but braved it once we went in.  She LOVED Bare Cove Park-there were no waves and lots of other dogs around.

This week I have been really into finding new races to do. Three of my girlfriends and I are signing up for a marathon relay in the Fall. Registration for the Big Sur Marathon begin Monday…and I am seriously considering signing up!  I need some motivation, and the most beautiful marathon in the US might just be the ticket!

Are you running any races this summer? What keeps you motivated?
