Runner-ific!

First things first: To all of you who are running the Boston marathon tomorrow, good luck! May the wind be at your back and the hills feel like gentle slopes.

Second things second: This has been one runner-ific weekend.

It started with some spectating at the Dodge the Deer 5K yesterday. A friend of mine was going after a 5K PR so I packed up the two kids and went to the race to cheer her on. Although the race turned out to be a trail race, which she wasn't expecting, she still rocked her fastest 5K! Yay, Jen! And you can believe that I cheered loud and proud. Because I did.

Yesterday afternoon, I enjoyed an easy 4.6 mile run. Then I put together a 5K training plan for another friend and wrote a running-related article for my Albany Running Examiner site.

Today, I offered up some running injury advice to yet another friend and enjoyed a 5.7 mile run in what turned out to be perfect running weather: Crisp and sunny.

Running, running, running.

In other words, runner-ific!

And it isn't over yet. Tomorrow I will be geeking-out, following the Boston marathon because, hey, if I can't run it I can at least follow it online. I'll be rooting hard for Kara Goucher. She is going after a huge goal just over 6 months after giving birth to her son. I feel a bond with Kara in that I went after a huge goal two weeks ago at my half marathon, almost 6 months after giving birth to my son. So, you know, we're almost like the same person.

Ha to the ha.

But I would like Kara to win it all. I would also like Joanie to qualify for the Olympic Trials because she rocks and how cool would it be for her to do that at 53?

And, last, I hope all the Boston runners have the time of their lives!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
