I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia this week for the weekly wrap.
Lent started this week, so to get it out of the way, I got my cheesteak on... because I'm giving up cheesteaks for lent.
First I want to say that I suck at recovery! While we didn't race the trail half marathon, we were for sure hurting a little after the run. I took Tuesday off from running, but had to do lots of squats at Cardio Funk and Bolly X, my quads didn't like me later that night. We also had lots of fastnachts that day, and lots of coffee!!
On Friday, while I was warming up for my sprints, an ambulance flew right by me, there had been a lot of firetrucks going by while I was getting ready, but I didn't think much of it... and when I turned the corner to start my sprints, all the fire trucks were there, and a house up on smoke and fire! Adjustments had to be made to my run, smoke was filling up my lungs and wasn't letting me breathe.
We looked later on the news, nobody was injured.
By the way, the weather in Harrisburg was doing its weather thing on overdrive! One moment we had sun and wind, the next we had squalls of snow and whiteouts! the last whiteout happened right as school let our and my Love Nugget and I ran to the car!
On Friday I talked about hacks for running, I hope somebody got a laugh out of my hacks... but I forgot my most efficient one! Tell others you are going for a run, they will keep you accountable! On Saturday I told my sister of my plan to do 6 miles that day. As most of the morning was spent slacking off and eating pretzels, my sister kept reminding me to go run... when I still hadn't started by 3:00pm, she told me "if you are not running by 3:15, I'm not watching Love Nugget, you will have to figure out another arrangement." I quickly laced up my sneakers, put on my headphones and left for my run.

I ran a lot of Oxford, my family's hometown, where I went to High School. I stopped by the track, where I did my first mile run. The day was bright and sunny, but very windy!
On Sunday night, as I was getting ready for my run, I saw that my friend Jodi was running by close by... after some text message exchanges, we finally found each other, and she kicked my butt up some hills! We got all caught up on our talking about future races and life. We had an awesome run!

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey- I am really enjoying this book so far! it has a little bit of the stuff I enjoy, Aliens, apocalypse and a strong YA female character!
We are currently on taper mode, our next race is this Saturday, the DC Rock 'n' Roll Half. I am very excited to run this again, and looking forward to meeting some blog friends!
