That’s right, I’m taking the easy way out this week and bringing The Rundown to you in pictures. Why? Oh let me see, it could be because I was in a van with six other women, running 200 miles from Canon Mountain, NH to Hampton Beach, NH from 4:30am Friday until 5:30pm Saturday night. This 34 hour Reach The Beach Relay race also included a 9.5 mile run at 1AM, for yours truly. I’m stunned that I can even post pictures at this point. I hope the following makes sense…
WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8, 2014
RUNNING: All I did was run. Including the Reach the Beach race, I ran a total of 42 miles this past week. I also got to run in Boston on Thursday morning, which makes me happier then I can possibly tell you.
CYCLING: I taught only one spin class, so this was a sad mileage week. I managed 26ish miles in that class. I suck, and I have no picture to prove it.
CROSS-TRAINING: Um, living in a van for two days? Not using a real toilet during that time? Yes and (unfortunately) yes.
RACING: I could post 10,000 pictures here but, I’ll save that for my Reach The Beach relay race re-cap post!
FUEL: This really needs no words but here I am typing anyway…
THINGS I LOVE: The boys at their first track practice!
THINGS I DON’T LOVE AS MUCH: Missing the boys first track practice because I was running a two-day race!
MUSIC: This was the very first time I listened to music during a race. Sadly, I have no picture to represent that.
TV: The Packers just won. I can’t ask for much more.
READING: I’m so glad to not be reading maps of transition areas and/or elevation gain and losses for my next leg of the relay.
