Today was another water bottle-freezing run. Not frozen solid like the last time, but still frozen enough, and waking up this morning was a doozy, as I of course stayed up late last night at an Olympics viewing party with friends. Boston was hit with yet another snow storm this past week, and the roads were a bit hazardous today to say the least. Today’s ten-miler was like a giant obstacle course. We were constantly dodging snow and ice chunks, and running up snowbanks and hills that could also double as bunny hills given their current state of snow cover, but another long run is in the books and another success story has been written.
For anyone who would like to keep up to date with the status of my new shoes, they felt great today. They definitely offer a lot more support than my “old” and worn out, but still fairly new sneakers.
Thank You Notes:
- Thank you to all of the veteran marathoners who constantly offer their wisdom, tips, and tricks during training runs (and on the train ride to the course). I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that your advice is greatly appreciated.
- Thank you to peanut butter for being somewhat delightful to eat (I’m still working on it- it’s an acquired taste, right?) and fueling my long runs. Your protein content keeps me going.
