Man, I’m feeling behind after being out of town for just a couple days and adjusting to post-marathon life! I also feel totally off my routine since I’m taking a few days off from running post-marathon and without a routine, I’m a hot mess. (You can read about my typical morning routine here.) I’ve been letting myself sleep in (I slept 9 hours the past two nights!) and enjoy a lack of structure after a long period of very structured training leading up to the race.
I’ll do a full recap about the race soon (let me know if you have specific questions), but in case you missed it on Instagram, I qualified for Boston! My time was 3:28:50. I felt great about the race and I so appreciate how excited all my readers and internet friends have been for me! I haven’t been sore at all, which is really kind of weirding me out. But I have been really tired since the race, probably because I didn’t sleep well (i.e. didn’t sleep at all) the night before or after. And, you know, that whole running 26.2 miles thing. (Or 26.4 according to my Garmin! Darn tangents!)
I realize I promised in the last post that Tommy and I would share our engagement story over the weekend…and that didn’t happen. We were just enjoying having a weekend together and getting to spend so much time together since that never happens. But, we’ll get to it soon…I promise! I doubt any of you were hanging around, waiting 😉 but I have this inordinate sense of responsibility to do something when I say I will so it’s been nagging at me.
We came home from Wilmington on Sunday night and enjoyed a staycation on Monday. I spent a lot of time reading (currently sucked into this) and we went to the driving range for a bit too. I’m completely obsessed with these golf shoes from Adidas (thank you Adidas!). They’re cute and comfy, and I kind of want another pair just to wear around town. I LOVE my Adidas Adizero Boston running shoes (review here) and am on my 3rd pair, so it was fun to branch into another kind of Adidas shoe and like it just as much.
I also wanted to announce the winner of the Beautycounter giveaway! Chelsea (@ceoleary), you won! Shoot me an email at afoodiestaysfit [at] gmail [dot] com to claim your prize! 🙂 If you didn’t win, but want to make sure you hear about future Beautycounter promotions/giveaways/deals, sign up for my newsletter here (if you haven’t already).
Alrighty, I’m off for now! It’ll probably take me a couple days to pull together the race recap, but I have a fashion post drafted with some of my spring picks that I can probably get up sooner, so keep an eye out for that in the meantime!
