IT IS FRIDAY!
Do I say this every Friday? I think I do…sorry about that!
But seriously this Friday has been awesome so far. Guess what I did this morning?! That is RIGHT. I woke up (after 2 bottles of wine and a hell of a lot of pasta with my bf–he drank more than me, but I definitely ate more) and did a beautiful 6 mile run through the streets of the Upper East Side, to Central Park, around the small loop, back through the streets, down to East River.
I know I talk about the weather a lot in my posts, but honestly the weather is a big part of running. It can make or break a day for you. Yesterday on my run home it was hotter than I expected and I had not drank enough water….dehydration=5.5 miles instead of 8. Oh well. Still a great Thursday run.
Back to today!
I took a lot of pictures today and I wanted to share them with you!
Okay, okay. So I may have gone a little iPhone-picture-taking-while-running happy…but how could I not today? It was a gorgeous, mood lifting morning out there. The epitome of perfect weather for a runner.
Also, AGAIN…it is FRIDAY!
So excited because right at 5:00 I am leaving to go catch a train to my mom’s house for the weekend with H! At mom’s request we are going to celebrate my birthday and at H and my request we are going to celebrate mother’s day. Much deserved for AL.
Tonight we are going to dinner in Babylon and tomorrow my mom and I are doing a semi-long run together. We are going to plant flowers, go shopping, and enjoy the nice weather all day Saturday. Screw my allergies I am going to enjoy the great outdoors! Sunday is going to be an interesting morning because H is running is FIRST 5k with mom and I.
Last night over a glass of wine we had this conversation:
Me: “are you excited for the race Sunday?”
H: “yes I really am”
Me: “awesome I am too!”
H: “I am going to smoke you”
Me: “H..I hope that you do smoke me, we will see…we really will see”
H: “I really think I can smoke you”
Me: “It would be very surprising if you smoked me…but again, we will see”
Any takers on the perspective times of H and myself? My best 5k is somewhere around 24 minutes. H hasn’t run a mile in a year.
That is all for now runners!
Happy Friday–get out there and do something great this weekend 🙂
