I met up with friends for 5 miles and then added a few more solo miles after. The dogwoods are gorgeous in TN right now, and my friend Dave shared the story of the dogwood with us. Dogwoods bloom around Easter. Blood stains the edges of the petals and the bloom’s center wears a crown of thorns. I had never heard it before and will forever look at dogwoods differently.
I realized that I would have a date with the Unicorn in 7 days…eek!!!
I grabbed a green smoothie after my run.
Because it’s race week, my track workout was modified.
5 miles at 8:50 pace
3 miles at 7:50 pace
It was 70 degrees with 97% humidity. Let’s hope we don’t have to race in that weather!
I was in a hurry after track, so I made a quick cup of my favorite instant oats.
And headed to Franklin Massage for a tune-up before Boston.
Tuesday afternoon I had the pleasure of working with St. Jude to film a spot for our local news. Ian Miller (a St. Jude patient), Richard Shadyac the CEO of ALSAC, and my friends Roy and Stephanie participated. This was the second time that I got to “work” with Ian. Read about the first time HERE!
I’m running the CMM as a St. Jude Hero and would greatly appreciate any and all donations to the Children’s Research Hospital!! No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude thanks to your donations. CLICK HERE TO DONATE!! The Country Music Marathon is only 10 days away, so don’t wait to donate!!!
Because it was Taco Tuesday, I stopped by Chipotle for dinner.
Wednesday: One Boston Day
It’s comforting to know that coffee needs me, too.
The best way I know to honor One Boston Day, is to run.
Kismet…My New Balance Fresh Foam Zante: Boston Edition arrived!
And finally, some random musings…
I received an email from Nike with their new clothes. What do you think of these Hammer-esque capris?! I feel like this style should stay in the 80’s.
KINDa like a candy BAR…Kind Bars were all over the news. READ HERE . Thoughts?
Had you heard the story of the dogwood before?
What do you think about the Nike MC Hammer pants?
Do you love Kind Bars? We always have a few in our house.
Did you do a speed workout this week?
