We’re having a little glimpse of fall weather here in Boston, which is by far my most favorite time of year for running. It won’t last for long, supposedly it’s going to be 90 degrees on Wednesday (??WTF??) – not my favorite weather at all. Anyways, today was a glorious day for running, and I was able to head out for some easy miles with my co-worker/friend (mostly friend). We both decided it would be a S-L-O-W run (jog?) which was great to catch up and gossip about our not-so-exciting work place. I did a fairly long bike ride last week and also took a couple spin classes, so my legs have felt a bit heavy the past couple days. I’m hoping to get some easy runs in the beginning of this week and be ready for a 5k I have coming up on Thursday. If you live in Boston, you definitely have to check out the ‘Lets Run, Have Fun and Be Fit’ 5k series on the Charles River. http://baevents.com/mardigrasfestivalrun/
This is the last one in the series, but they’re a BLAST and also an awesome way to meet new people. The run is fun, the beer is better 😉 A bunch of people from my running club (I’ll talk more about that at a later time!) run these races, so it’s a good opportunity for me to try to keep up with some of the faster girls in my club and also practice some good racing habits (i.e actually warming up, cooling down, ect).
The tennis nerd in me is getting my fix watching the Djokovic/Nadal US Open final tonight. Seriously, these guys are out of control.
What’s your favorite running weather?
Any must run races in your city?
