This is the best email I’ve gotten in a while!
It has been quite a journey. I set the goal of running Boston about two years ago. You can read about some of my failed attempts here, but now it’s official. April 20, 2015 will be the next time I run 26.2!
Other things that I’ve been up to…
Alaina, Jared, Brent, Marta and I went to Bacari PDR, a wine bar that just opened up in Playa. Playa is getting cool. I love having so many options within walking distance. Bacari serves tapas (we especially liked the chorizo pizza, bacaro fries, salame calabrese, and burrata), a huge wine selection, beers, cocktails and delicious sangria. Alaina and I will be back tomorrow. They are doing three weeks of happy hour prices ($6 a dish and great drink prices). Check it out!
Girls on the Run started the 2014 Fall Season today! Check us out at the beach in Playa del Rey! We ran about a mile and a half in the heat. This year the program is open to 5-8th grade girls at my school.
Last week I ran lots of easy miles. Maybe I’ll try to push the pace this upcoming week:
Monday: 5 easy miles with no watch (Had run the half the day before)
Tuesday: Off (Brent and I went to Perch for dinner)
Thursday: 5 easy stress relief no watch no music miles
Friday: 1 mile with Back on My Feet (On monthly meeting Fridays we run a timed mile before we meet)
Saturday: 6 Miles on the beach in Santa Monica with Marta, Ellen and Brianna followed by Santa Monica Power Yoga with Rudy
Sunday: 12 Miles averaging 8:40s in the HEAT with Lululemon Run Club
