Midweek Miles (kind of)

Monday:  3 rainy miles at Salty Dogs

Tuesday:  8km bike and 2 treadmill miles (first time I’ve been on a treadmill in months!)

Wednesday:  Skipped run in favor of finishing season 3 of Girls.  I regret nothing except for the massive cliff hanger which left a hole the size of Brooklyn in my heart.  I felt much more Shosh than I did for Hannah.  In fact, I think Shosh is my new favorite character…anyway…

Ray didn’t just buy her M&M’s, he bought her PEANUT M&M’s which are the best kind.  Please stop being such a heart breaker, Ray!

Thursday:  Spin class and four miles on tap for this evening…a lot of things need to get taken care of before we head to NOLA, but hopefully I can still squeeze in a run

Friday:  2 miles and if I’m really lucky spin class too

Saturday:  9 mile bike ride to Abita for beer and hopefully 6-7 miles of running too

What are your running plans for Easter weekend?

Okay, so running two marathons back to back may not be the best idea, but you didn’t really think I was going to skip out on St. Jude just because I was running NYCM, did you?
I’ll admit, I briefly considered running the half instead, but this cause is too close to my heart to not go the full distance.  Besides, after the race being canceled last year, I have a course to PR.  Not to mention the fact that I have pretty crappy luck with race day weather, so I have no qualms about hedging my bets and signing up for two races using the same training cycle.  Hopefully 2014 will be the year I get to run a race in something slightly better than record high heat or an ice storm.
Registration is currently open for 2013 runners.  Normal St. Jude Hero registration opens May 5, if anyone is interested.  It will sell out, so if this race is on your to do list (and it should be- it’s an awesome race), sign up ASAP.
