I didn’t run any races this weekend, and therefore don’t have a running race recap blog to report about. Funny how that works.
But I will tell you all about my weekend starting on Friday, when I drove down to see one of my friends Jackie. (I’ve mentioned her a few times on the blog before but I drove up from VA last summer to see her get married!). Now I can drive 30 minutes south and see her…isn’t that an easier drive? LOL.
Along with her sister Jessica (who actually attends the college I work at and also hang out with!), we went to Gorden Biersch where I was promptly disappointed with my food. The salad was tiny and I had asked for a piece of salmon instead of chicken…they gave me both. That’s fine, but it caused my meal (with a coffee) to cost 20 dollars…not worth it at all because I literally ate about two hours later walking around the mall. Lucky for my wallet and I, I didn’t find any clothes worth interest…probably because I was already wearing my glorious party pants.
Saturday was spent relaxing which I certainly needed. I actually really needed to go grocery shopping but was feeling lazy again…go figure. I ended up staying the night in Syracuse, woke up and ran again outside at the park and then drove home. It was nice to run outdoors so much. Finally getting my vitamin D.
Sunday Funday (literally): I drove out to Rochester and ran with Laura. We completed my first 20 mile run, went to Wegmans and ate a nice quiche.
My legs are certainly feeling that twenty miler, as it was my longest run ever. (my previous longest run was 18.9 miles). Running with Laura is nice because she is great marathoner (and runner) so it wasn’t like she was going in as unprepared as me. I thought I might die around 18
miles but she pulled me through. We ran at an average of 8:30 pace, which for my long runs is pretty quick. I was happy to have such an enjoyable time and even better company.
After that, I ended up going to bed wicked early and ending my weekend. Isn’t real life fun? But seriously, all in all it was a great weekend.
