June 1st!

My second favorite month!
Did I weigh-in. Um, no :( But I went running (more on that later!)

The long weekend was pretty busy. Saturday was spent doing errands and cooking for a BBQ we were having Sunday night. But also trying to relax and rest for my race Sunday morning.

A 4:30 wake-up call for the race that started in Boston at 7 am. Mentally the race was pretty tough - it was humid (but not sunny thankfully), and the mile markers vs. my Garmin were way off. I ended the race with 5.52 miles. Other people around me were 5.25 - 5.4. At the end of the race you have a long way to go to the finish line and it is deceptive - it ended up being .5 miles. I finished in 1:01:32, which was great for 5.5 miles! I would have even been happy with that time in 5 miles. 2 years ago I PRed in this race with 55 minutes. I hope for faster next year.
Always nice to add bling to my collection.

We were home by 10:00 - we would have been earlier but trying to get out of Boston with all the road closures for the race (there is also a 1/2 Marathon) took a while.
Since my daughter will be away for the 4th of July, we celebrated a little early.

Eating has been pretty poor. I did weigh-in on Saturday and it was 219.8, but who knows by now! I did a major purge yesterday - no junk at all in the house. But it did last longer than it should.

I didn't get in a run earlier in the week, so I finished May with 26 miles. I almost went on the treadmill yesterday to get an even 30, but friends were running this morning instead of Friday so I wanted to join them.

I got to wear new sneakers this morning. I try to change my sneakers every 100 miles because in the past my plantaar fascitis will flare up after that. You can't see in the picture but they are graduated color which remind me of the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino.
The run this morning wasn't overally fast, and even though it was humid, it felt good to be out. I am really going to try to get out 2x during the week in June. Got to take advantage of the morning sun while I can!
