Long Run, Blue Skies, Ocean Breeze
Last weekend my mom popped into town for a visit!
She hasn’t been to Fort Lauderdale for quite a while so I was eager to take her for some salt water therapy.
I figured you wouldn’t mind coming along to the beach too!
We ended up munching on veggies and hummus at a restaurant right along the water while we caught up on all the family drama.
It was a perfect 72 degrees out with a nice ocean breeze so we stayed and chatted for a while.
I know, we look so similar ;). For those who don’t know, I was adopted!
In less than a week I’ll be running this portion of the beach as part of the A1A Marathon and Half! This is right about where you start striding your way down to the finish line!
I never realized it before but right near the area where the finish line is set up is this 0.0 mile marker!
I am looking forward to earning the gorgeous A1A 10th year anniversary medal next Sunday!
On Saturday I got in my last long run – 9 miles – before the race.
I’m not tapering for this one. In fact I have 31 miles on the schedule for this week. That doesn’t mean I don’t expect to do well though! If you remember I didn’t taper before the Fort Lauderdale Half in November and still set a PR.
I’m not looking to PR this time. This race is just about celebrating a great half marathon season and running my favorite course… but I still want to do well :). I’ll talk more about that later this week!
For now I’m signing off … wishing I was still sitting under a palm tree with a mango smoothie in hand!
I hope you’re off to a good week!
Do you set weekly goals? If so, what is your #1 goal for this week?
