Weekly Roundup: March 22nd

I've learned to take advantage of the weeks when I'm on a training hiatus. I enjoyed some really fun activities after work this week like having dinner with a friend, hearing Colin Powell speak, and cooked some nice dinners. And yesterday when the sun came out and we saw some nice spring weather, I enjoyed a laid back run around the neighborhood with a cloud-less blue sky. Sometimes it's nice to run just because you want to and not because you have to.

I'm excited to be volunteering at the Shamrock race finish line this morning. Best of luck to everyone racing! - C

While Christine is volunteering at Shamrock, I will be running the last ten miles of the Quintiles Marathon with Lynda, a girl from my running group who will become a first time marathoner!  The last couple days I volunteered at the expo handing out bibs to anxious runners.  There is so much nervousness and excitement at a race expo and it really is fun to be on the volunteer end sometimes.

Marathon signs, volunteer dinner and a race day inspiration shirt! (Lynda is bottom left brunette)

How was your week?


  1. I love that you ladies both volunteer at races when you're not racing because I do too :). It's so fun to give back to the other runners and makes you feel really thankful for those who volunteer at races. Looks like both of you had some really fun times this week- pretty exciting that you got to see Colin Powell, have dinner with friends, and just enjoy some laid back runs. Good luck this week!

  2. I hope Christine had a great time volunteering at shamrock!
