Happy Sunday! I am so glad it is finally getting warmer here. Yesterday it got as high as 50 degrees and today it went up to over 60 degrees. It feels like Spring is around the corner.
I did not run one single day this week. After my half marathon in Atlanta last week, it took me a few days to recover. I was hurting a lot. It hurt to walk and also when getting up in the morning. I felt like I had just run a marathon. The feeling was also similar to when I ran the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon in October. Anyway, I knew I was going to be sore for a few days since I did train properly and the course was very hilly. 🙂
My legs felt better by Thursday but my body wanted to sleep. And that is what I did. I was also more hungry than usual.
I was off on Monday due to Casimir Pulaski Day. I was glad to be off but honestly don’t understand why we are off. I would rather work that day and get out of school one day earlier. This year our last day is Friday, June 5th. I went to get a haircut, did laundry, and finished some work. My babies kept me company.
This week we did several fun activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss! He is one of our favorite authors. We colored, watched a movie, and made some hats. I realized I did not take pictures of the activities. 🙁
I don’t know if I mentioned this but last month I applied to be on the Brooks Run Happy team. Sad news but I was not selected. Am I sad and disappointed? Yes! It was on my running wish list from last year. I was so happy to find out that Brooks opened up the application process and anyone could apply to be on the team. I know thousands applied but don’t know how many were selected. Notification emails were sent on Monday and I know of two girls that were selected. Since I didn’t receive a rejection email, a little part of me thought that maybe I was on the “backup” list. Nope. I found out on Friday that I wasn’t selected. Apparently there was a problem with Brooks’ email notification system and that is why many people were not notified. I found out from someone at BibRave.
Anyway, moving on. Life still goes on. 🙂 I still like their shoes and will continue to buy them.
My next half marathon is the Garmin Oz Half Marathon in Olathe, KS on April 18. It will be state #44. After that race I will be going to Boston to spectate the marathon. I am looking forward to it! However, I’ve read that there is a possibility that it could be cancelled? NO! After running in Kansas, I will be going to Fargo, ND for state #45.
Have you run either of those marathons? I know KS is hilly and ND is flat but that is all I know. What to join me on either or both races?
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
