Thursday (18,286 steps) - Barre with Gabi in the morning. Run club at Belmar. The weather, thankfully, was much warmer this week. A decided to walk with Mo and I ran with Jennifer and Colfax. The entire run just felt insanely hard.
|Huge group tonight!|
|A is much better at photobombing than I am|
Friday (13,873 steps) - Hooray for a rest day! Cookie booth from 6-8 and it turns out... A HIT HER GOAL SO IT IS THE LAST ONE FOR THE YEAR!! Her goal was just to get to 750 boxes this year instead of the 1000 she got last year. Happy to have it all done and over with. Cookies are so time consuming and stressful!! Got our aid station stuff ready for the morning and in bed early.
Saturday (33,074 steps) - We had the mile 18 turn around aid station, which was nice because it was on our way to the start anyway. A wasn't wanting to run long and I had 12-14 on schedule. The forecast for the day was nearly 70 degrees, although when we were running it was fairly cold and windy. A and I ran 7 miles together and then I headed out for another 5 by myself. Finally was warm enough to take off my long sleeves around mile 9. Overall, not too bad until the last two miles or so, happy to have it done.
Sunday (20,435 steps) - Lisa got to our house at 6:30 so we could go out for one last snowshoe adventure this season. We had heard that there was still a decent amount of snow in Nederland, so we drove to the Hessie trail head. That's actually misleading since the 4th of July road is closed for winter maintenance and we actually had to hike/snowshoe the 1.3 miles to the start. The road was super icy and virtually no "snow." We were hopeful that this would change when we got to the trail. It didn't. The snow was so packed down everywhere that we were really just ice hiking. You know what's really loud? Snowshoeing on solid ice.
|Pretty sure A is ON the lake|
|Lisa, me and A|
Monday (14,635 steps) - Thankfully, a rest day. Having a weird "pain" on the side of my right calf, sort of between the shin and calf? And finally, a weekday of nothing to do! A had a soccer meeting right after school, but we had nothing in the evening. Stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things. Made some Kung Pao pork and went to bed early.
