Rainy Sunday

We got more and more rain last night and today.  There were periods of dryer weather, but none bike appropriate.  And the rain usually came with lightening and thunder so didn't want to be too far from home regardless.  Bike will have to wait - maybe tomorrow.  Today was relatively lazy - mass, breakfast, read the paper, watch a movie, hang out and take walk with hubby, dinner, grocery shop, pick up pieces for first communion banner from friend who ordered them, etc.  Gee, when I write it out - it looks like more than it was.  It really was some good down time. 

Stacy wanted to run tonight.  I really wasn't feeling it.  Was more sore from the 5K than I should have been.  But I told her to run here (she lives a couple miles away) and then run a few with me (just under 3 as it turns out) and then run back or have my husband drive her home (since it was dark).  She chose to run it all.  What a fiend! 

Heard from a lady at the 5K yesterday that Map My Ride/Run web site has a challenge to finish a half marathon in 2 weeks or a marathon in 4 weeks (and a 3rd longer one that I can't recall).  You can sign up between now and June.  But when you complete any of the challenges, you can get a discount code to the Rock-N-Roll Series.  Since I'm still on the fence about doing the half in St. Louis in October with Susan, I figured better safe than sorry and signed up for the challenge.  Shouldn't be too hard to get the running in (it wasn't for the CTER 140.6).  Just have to remember to log it all on MMR.  I'm not sure how much the discount is, but anything is nice really.

Thinking about and praying for all those choosing to go ahead and run Boston tomorrow.  So hard to not do it if you've been training for it.  Just hoping everyone keeps their egos in check and is safe.  Found out a friend's husband is doing it and I'm so pleased for him.  He has also signed up for IMAZ so I'm stoked to hear all about that training too.

Busy week coming up.  Better get myself off to bed early so that I can face it all. 


  1. I think you should sign up for that seem really great at getting those done. Agreeing with you about Boston...wishing everyone the best and hoping egos are kept in check and people stay safe. Love how you put it :)

  2. Sign up for the challenge. I think you will enjoy it!

  3. You have a good running friends. I wish I could find a good running partner, however, work schedules get in the way. I may have to take a look at that challenge mapmyrun.

  4. Way to get a run in! I'm signed up for the RnR half in October. Should be fun.
