OMG, and just like that, it’s December.
On Tuesday, I went to a free fun run hosted by a running club in the area that I’m thinking of joining. It was a small turn-out with temps in the 30s, but I ended up having so much fun! I had been feeling a little bit anxious about going – I wasn’t going to know anyone there and it was so dark and cold out that I almost convinced myself not to go. Well, I’m so glad I did go! I talked to a bunch of different runners and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I even made plans to run a fun Christmas tree run in Boston with one girl who I spent a long time with chatting about marathons and lost toenails. 🙂
The rest of the week contained some strength training, Fitnessblender videos, and a 4 mile treadmill run at goal pace. I say goal pace because I’m running a race this weekend! My mom, brother, and I are all running on separate teams at the Mill Cities Relay with our running club!My mom has run this race before, but it’s going to be my first time and I’ll be running a 9.5 mile leg. I feel relatively trained for it. I’m hoping to run around the same pace that I ran at the Baystate Half Marathon (8:16/mile), but I also haven’t been doing as many long runs lately, so I’m not sure how that will go.
Anyways, that’s my quick check-in for the week! I’ll have some better posts coming your way next week. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
