Sunday Summary – 5/25/2014

So… I ran a race today. I know, it sneaked up on me too but it actually went pretty well. Okay – it was the perfect way to cap off my first week of training with my new coach!

I ran the Boston Run to Remember 5 Miler (there was also a half marathon at the same time) and I was the first woman and 7th overall out of the 4,000 or so people that ran the 5. So, yeah that was cool! I also got to break tape for the first time in my life – also an awesome feeling. But more on that in a full recap later this week! 🙂
