Have you missed me? I’ve been in vicarious vacation land – it’s really fun! Fran got a new job (yay!) and had some time off between finishing up at his last job and starting the new position. So, he’s been home, hanging out with me and Roman, going to the gym, playing lots of video games, you know, basic staycation stuff. At first, I thought, ‘Awesome! I’ll have so much extra time for blogging and running, I’ll probably have posts scheduled for a month in advance!‘ What actually happened was that I started thinking I was on vacation too (even though I was still training all my clients). It’s been lovely, but next week you’ll see a few more posts from me.
In the meantime, check out the new Running tab on my menu – I’ve added a drop down to easily access my Running Tips series, race recaps, all of my NYC Marathon training posts, and my current Half Marathon PR Quest posts.
Tomorrow, I’m featuring an amazing fit mama on Fit Mama Friday! Annie Brees is badass. She got into powerlifting after realizing her heart was in lifting weights. Her account of her first powerlifting competition is well-worth reading. It did not go as planned. In fact, it began with her failing a major portion of the meet. This mama didn’t quit, though. Just reading it made me realize what being an athlete is all about. Please check in tomorrow to give Annie props for her drive.
I just found out my eldest nephew Jack is playing in the drum corp today welcoming Prince William and Princess Kate to my hometown. How cool is that? I’m so proud of him. The royals are visiting this beautiful lookout, Echo Point:
Have you ever felt like you were on vacation when you weren’t?
Do you have any topics you’d like to see covered in my Running Tips series?
Did it snow where you live this week, even though it’s halfway through April?!?
What’s your hometown like?
