I have to admit, today came with a surprising hangover. I only had 2 martinis last night and woke up feeling worse than I do after a bottle of wine. How is this possible? I was literally slurring my words before my second martini glass was empty. Needless to say, today is off to a rough start. I have a huge cup of freshly brewed coffee stationed within an inch of my hand and I have already downed several cups of water. My head is pounding and I would love to close my eyes.
This weekend is going to involve packing and drinking loads of wine. We found a new apartment in the same neighborhood and are super excited to move! Packing must always involve good music and a drink. It is utterly annoying, otherwise. Our new place is darling and I can’t wait to have my first housewarming party. If you lived here, I’d totally invite you. We'll probably pick up a few more bottles from the wine tasting we're attending on Saturday. Maybe I should do a wine review! :)
So…The Boston Marathon is in the air! Lately, the thought of even a half marathon sounds ridiculous. I realize with running, my performance and my drive ebb and flow. Right now, I am running to stay in shape but typically, I run because it keeps me sane. I know this stage won’t last forever but I also know it’s perfectly necessary right now. I can’t go full-force 365 days a year and maybe this is just nature’s way of preventing overuse injuries. It makes sense, right? I still feel light on my feet (some days) and although I haven’t been wearing a Garmin, I think my pace is decent.
Do you find that you need respite from running at times?
What do you fill your time with?
I need to mention Beth, at SUAR. She has had a very rough time dealing with an injury and I will be cheering her on from San Diego as she runs Boston on Monday. She has been through the ringer and is still running this race. She’s a badass mama! Best wishes, Beth! I hope all of you that are running on Monday have a fantastic time. Break a leg! (not really…)
