Last night’s 5 x Yasso 800 workout was a success! Once again, too quick on the first, but managed to hang in there and still tore up that last one at puke-threshold pace.

800m splits:


I’ll be heading out for a short and easy run tomorrow morning followed by an epic 35KM (21.75mi) run from our local store to our coach’s house out in the country. I enjoy point-to-point long runs, especially this one which offers gorgeous scenery along the way and a massive brunch fit for a bunch of marathoners when we arrive.

It should come as no surprise that the route will be challenging, including several significant climbs in the second half. Some of our friends who are headed to Boston and therefore tapering will be setting up two refueling/entertainment stations along the way. It’s sure to be a memorable morning!


Race pics!

Chilly Half Marathon

Around the Bay

**I do own more than one race shirt, I just love this one from my first marathon.**

And speaking of race shirts… the folks at Around the Bay were kind enough to send me a ladies medium after I got stuck with the mens originally. Never hurts to ask!

Have a great weekend!
