In less than a week, I ran Boston and the Country Music Half. This week has been dedicated to boring recovery…blah, blah, blah. It’s not my favorite, but it’s necessary.
Other than feeling heavy and slow, my body felt good after the CMM half, so I did a 1 hour recovery jog on the treadmill. If you can’t tell, I bought the entire Boston expo!
How I feel in my new gym clothes…
We spent the rest of the day at my Gran’s house…so good for my spirit. The only picture I took was of her biscuits in a cast iron pan. You can see where my brain was AND my Gran had homemade pear preserves!
Sunday night wisdom from Maya Angelou…
8 treadmill miles followed by a green smoothie!
T-shirt du jour…Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions. Coffee understands.
And, I made a new honey-lime, sweet potato and black bean taco salad recipe…so good!!
It felt so weird to not join my friends for track Tuesday, but my legs definitely aren’t ready yet. I did, however, enjoy an empty gym!
First marathon. 5 years ago. 5+ hour finish
Boston 2015. 3:38 finish. I never in my wildest dreams thought this would be possible.
After the gym, I baked a batch of cookies for thank-you gifts. This might be my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe ever!! I will share asap!
I had a much needed haircut and highlights. I have a little patch of grays that needed to be covered up!
With my new hair, I put on some make-up and real clothes and met up with girlfriends to catch up!
Do you get into a rut of wearing run clothes more than “real” clothes? I am SO guilty of this one!

Have you started getting gray hairs? What age did you start to notice them and do you color your hair?
Do you look forward to working out when you have new run clothes?
