Hello, happy Monday!
Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! While I did go home, my family and I kept it very low key. My mom is still dealing with her injury (which seems to actually be a spinal issue instead of the original hamstring pull we thought it was…) and she told us she’d rather celebrate Mother’s Day later on when she is feeling better.
I ran my goal half marathon on Saturday! I’ve got a race recap ready to go for ya, I’ll be sharing that later this week.
To be perfectly frank, I’m glad it’s over. It was a long training cycle and I am ready to reduce the mileage and let my body recover. Plus, I kind of forgot how freaking hard half marathons are to race. I was thinking to myself how I never wanted to run another half marathon ever again during the last couple miles.
I know that won’t be the case, but I was feeling pretty strongly about it at the time. 😉
My body and feet were feeling pretty beat up after the race, so I was happy to have a new recovery shoe from OOFOS to slip on afterwards!
I received these shoes a week or two ago through my Bibrave partnership, and I have honestly been LOVING them. I first tried OOFOS when I picked up a pair of their sandals at The Running Event in December. They became my go-to pair of shoes post-run pretty much immediately thereafter, and when the opportunity came up to test a pair of their shoes, I jumped at it. I’ll post a full review later this week.
How did you celebrate Mother’s Day weekend? Did anyone else race this past weekend?
