Workout Wednesday: Race Day is Coming Up!

Delicious Vegan Dish of the Day:

We had some leftover rosemary white beans and polenta for lunch.  I think it tasted even better as leftovers!

Money Matter:

Today we spent the following:

  • $90.24 for Trader Joe’s groceries
  • $3.79 for a toothbrush for IP (she has 2 and 1/2 teeth now!)

Workout Wednesday

The race is coming up!  This Sunday I will run my first 1/2 marathon at the Boston Run to Remember.  This is going to a be an especially exciting and poignant race.  It is the first major race in Boston since the Boston Marathon.  For me, personally, it is my first 1/2 marathon ever.

A year ago I was (very) pregnant and just counting the days until I was done with work, and hopefully ready to push a baby out.  The idea of walking three blocks was daunting, let alone running a race.  Now, thanks to my good friend Sarah, I’ve trained with long runs on weekends, and I’m totally excited and ready for this race.  While I haven’t shaved off all the weight I want to, 10 months after kiddo #2 was born, I’m feeling good, feeling strong, and feeling proud that I am going to do this 1/2 marathon thing.  Someday I hope to be running this race and aiming for a personal record or some such lofty aspiration.  This time around, however, I’m looking forward to running the whole thing, finishing strong, and then meeting up with my family to nurse the baby and play at the park with LP.  So, in the next few days, I’m going to get some sleep, get some carbs, and get ready for the big day!
