1. This weekend is my last long run before I taper for Wineglass Marathon. Part of me doesn’t feel ready. I don’t know why. I rocked my speed work and my mid week tempo run (thanks to amazing weather). I guess its just nerves. I can’t believe it is almost October!!
2. Speaking of October…and NY…I’m super excited because 2 weeks after I get back from upstate NY for the marathon I will be heading to the City for my first non-running vacation in almost 2 years (AMEN). I am so excited!! Flights and hotel are booked. Now just to come up with tons of things to do…so I would love restaurant, shopping and Broadway suggestions if you have them. The last time I was in NYC was 4 years ago and it was only for a long weekend. This will be Wednesday-Sunday and it will be during my birthday week. Maybe that’s why I just want the marathon to get here and be over…
3. Smoothies have become my new favorite thing. I had one this weekend and loved it…so I decided I should actually put the hand blender I purchased from CSN (after a blog win a few months ago) to use. Where in the world have I been?? So many of you have posted different recipes and I have just read about them. Well, now I am hooked and I have to go back and find your recipes! I love that I can get a veggie serving and usually 2-4 fruits in 1 glass. And they fill me up (add protein and flax). I’m using up the last of my chocolate protein and its not very good-any other suggestions out there?
Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend!!
