Weekly Roundup - September 21st

This was a fantastic week with some fall weather finally coming to both North Carolina and Virginia.  Workouts went well for both Christine and me.  Running outside was much easier with the changing weather and hopefully it is nice this morning while I pound the pavement for 18 miles with my running friends.  We will be running a good portion of the marathon I ran here in March so that will be fun!  But most of all, it is great to have company when you are out there for three plus hours!

We had some exciting things happen this week.  I found both my name and my sister's name on the Entrant List for the 2015 Boston Marathon.  Our Magical Express tickets arrived this week and we will be winging our way to Walt Disney World for the Tower of Terror 10 mile race in less than 2 weeks!  We are putting the finishing touches on our costumes as well.

  1. Yay for seeing your name on the entrants list!
    We've been having some cooler weather here in the evenings for sure. It's suppose to be warm today so I'm thinking I'll let the dogs swim one more time! They get so sad when we close the pool up! ~M

  2. Eeee!! Boston! So exciting. I wish we were getting some fall weather, but it's still in the 90s. Which Garmin is in that picture? I'm trying to decide if I want a new one before NYCM. I have the 405, which I love, but the battering is slowly dying and I have the 10 which is newer but I don't love it because it only has 2 data fields.

    1. Hi Jamie. It is the 220 and both Christine and I have it. The only thing that is particularly important to note is that the watch does have updates that are critical to download. Both of us had trouble and then realized that was the problem. Clearly we don't imput our date into the computer too often!

  3. So exciting about you and your sisters name on the Boston Marathon list!!! Great week of training ladies!!!

  4. So exciting to see both your names on the list!!!
