This morning, Mal and I met our TNT team (well, it’s just a few of us from TNT + other recruited runners) for a 7.5-mile run. The weather was a little bit chilly, but bright and sunny and really nice for running. Monday’s weather looks like it is going to be perfect for the marathon!
Marathon weekend in Boston is incredibly inspiring, so I was super excited for our run this morning. Plus, check out the email that our team captain sent earlier this week:
In honor of the 115th running of the Boston Marathon, this week’s run
is going to take us from the Store – to the Common – Down Mass Ave –
ACROSS THE MARATHON FINISH LINE and back to the store. This
route is about 7.5miles.
Wahoo! I could not wait to get out there and run this morning!! Here’s a map of the route if you’re interested: 7.53mi from Southie to Marathon Finish and back.
We ran right by the Expo!
And down Boylston Street! The city is already getting set up for Monday!
The finish line was being put into place when we ran by! So cool!
Our group finished 7.33 miles in 1:04:37, which is an average pace of 8:38– fast for me!
Sadly, my knee was really starting to bug me during the last few miles. As soon as I finished, I immediately iced it”¦
With a Coors Light can! It’s the only cold thing I could find! Ha!
Minus the knee pain, it was a fun run!
Now, I’m rocking my Paradice Pack. Let’s hope this knee pain goes away ASAP! Ugh, injuries are the worst!
After my run, I refueled with egg whites mixed with feta and basil, whole wheat toast with butter, and a Blondie iced coffee from P.S. Gourmet.
I’m heading to a blogger meet-up this afternoon. For some reason, I’m really nervous about it. Rumor has it that there are going to be some great runners there. I’m sure I’ll be starstruck!
