Oh yes, the weekend is OVER! I know most of you don't celebrate the weekend's end, but I really look forward to my very own midweek "weekend". Also, I technically worked 12 days in a row, with babysitting Sean and my regular work thrown in there. It's about time all that is over.
But don't you worry, I have a few days "off" work, and then I have something to really look forward to for next weekend. It's not a super cool wedding, even though those are fun, it's even better: Rock n Roll Seattle half marathon AND a rad blogger meet up!!! *commence cheering*
I am seeing Megan, whom I met when she was in San Francisco for Bay to Breakers 2011, meeting Tri Girl, the other Megan, Erika, Stacie, Nicole, and so many more that I can't even remember to link to them. I am sure there will be tons of photos taken, and lots of blog recaps once we get back to our respective homes post-race.
In related news, you should all check out Megan's blog for a guest post Tri Girl did, super fun! Oh, and I totally got a shout out in it, which was surprising, and made me feel loved :)
As for my plans this week before jetting off to Seattle, I am going to be cleaning the apartment, doing laundry, and packing. What a party, I tell ya.
I will also be attempting one or two short, slow runs to keep my legs moving. I had my last long run last Saturday. It was 12 miles, and I wanted to die. During that run I realized my Brooks Glycerin 9's were NOT going to cut it, as they gave me a bruise on my second toe that turned the nail black--a total first for me in my running life. I returned the shoes today, because my running store is amazing like that and totally takes back shoes that "just don't feel right" or hurt. My store was out of my size in my Asics Landreth 7's so I got a pair of Saucony Progrid Ride 5's, which I am hoping will work out. Anyone tried these shoes out? They feel squishy and wonderfully cushioned, which I am hoping means good runs. Now off to foam roll my calves before bed!
