Except I’m not running a marathon.
I am not upset. I am happy.
It was an emotional few months. I don’t think I could have run a successful full marathon. Instead I ran my hardest at the Brooklyn Half last week. I have a new half marathon PR and the drive to continue to train and race to the best of my ability.
I am racing a hometown (famous) race! The Spring Lake Five has been a staple race for locals since the 1970s. It is a race that is special to the Jersey Shore communities. It is also a fast race. I plan on running it fast.
I then plan on hanging out with my family and friends. I need to get as much time in with this little bear as possible!
Lily is ready for summer!
Also (because I know you’re DYING to know) my workouts last week were great! I am teaching 3 spin classes/ week and I love it!
