Weekly Roundup: March 29th

While this was the first full week of spring, but it sure did not feel like it.  Race day Sunday was far too humid and we only had one day in the 70's, but by late afternoon it was back in the 50's.  It snowed all day in the Boston area Saturday but luckily it did not stick on the roads.   Yesterday was my longest run of my marathon training cycle and it is so nice to know there are only 16 miles on my training plan for next weekend.  Reading and relaxing were part of my week, especially the day before my 22 miler.  This book has been such a fun read!


In between rain and poor weather , little Lulu got a few walks, but not every day since rain was part of our week!  She wanted play time on the other days!




My weekend has been wonderful so far including some exciting family news and then this arrived in my mailbox:

    1. Thanks Danielle. I am so relieved that I finally had a really good long run. This training cycle has not been ideal, I have just been so tired. So excited that taper is here!

  2. Oh my gosh, Lulu is ADORABLE! The weather has been nuts, hasn't it? In Florida, most of the week felt like June with lows in the upper 60's and highs in the mid 80's, then a front blew through on Friday and it was in the 40's yesterday! Brrrr! So excited for you as Boston approaches! :)

  7. I went a whole week without seeing the sun and I just don't like that. It's so exciting to see your mail from Boston. I know you are thrilled to have that 22 mile run behind you! We became grandparents for the 2nd time this week. A girl!
