I spent a few days last week going back and forth on which marathon I was going to run. There were positives and negatives to both Richmond and Baltimore. I also had several times where just scratching a fall marathon all together crossed my mind.
Richmond it is! I am so thankful for amazing friends in the running community that came to the rescue (thank you, thank you, thank you Emma).
So it is T- just under 6 weeks and counting!!!
Last week I had an amazing week of running. I already talked about my run on Wednesday in my last post. It could not have gone better. I then raced a 5k on Friday night and won overall female, and Saturday I ran my longest training run (22 miles) of this training cycle. Friday was the first night race that I have ever done. I thought I would really like it…not so much! I am glad I did it, and it was fun, but I am not a fan of night racing! This is what Friday and Sat looked like:
Friday- 2 mile warm up and 5k (20:32)
Saturday- 22 miles 7:45 pace. I did 7 miles in the middle @ around 7:05 pace and 2 at the end @ 7:15 pace. Those last 2 were HARD!
This week has been a completely different story. Every run this week was a struggle, but I will save that for tomorrows post.
This week was an amazing week for my husband and I as we celebrated 15 tears of marriage on Tuesday!
I usually have the hardest time coming up with gift ideas for him. but I was super excited about this gift (thank you PINTEREST)!!! I gave him a date basket filled with 15 envelopes with a card in them that had a date planned on each. Some of the cards had gift cards for the place where the date was to or small gifts that went with the date. He LOVED it!!!
Here is what a few of the cards looked like:
God has blessed me with such an amazing husband who I love, respect, and admire so very much. He encourages me and inspires me. The love that he has for God and for others motivates me to be a better person. He has seen the best in me and the worst in me, and has stood by me every step of the way. He is an amazing dad to our girls. There are really no words to say how much he means to me and how thankful I am for him and for our marriage. These 15 years have gone by so fast! I look forward to spending another 15+ years together and seeing all that God has for us!!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!!
There were a lot of races this weekend…if you raced how did it go? If not do you have one coming up?
Have you ever run a night race? Which do you like better?
If you are married, how long has it been?
