I started the day off right…with an apple butter crepe and coffee at The Perch!
Then I headed over to Percy Warner Park to run the 11.2 loop through the park with Roy and Malin. This is just a portion of the Flying Monkey Marathon course (November 23). The fall leaves were gorgeous!! (1,203 ft gain)
The race director “Monkey Trent” loves to remind us that you can’t train for The Monkey. Here’s an excerpt from today’s Monkey email…
Nothing burns like the Monkey. But only for a while. Then it gets inside you and starts to fill you up, and after a while you don’t have the strength to fight it. It’s easier just to sit down and go to sleep. They say you don’t feel any pain toward the end. First you go weak and drowsy, and everything starts to fade, and then it’s like sinking into a sea of warm milk. Peaceful, like. Does the Monkey scare you? It should.
Sounds like fun, yes?!!!
Today is Charlotte’s 7th Birthday!!!!
I love this girl SOOOOOO much!
Today, also had a Saucony theme. I was wearing this awesome Find Your Strong long sleeve tee…
When my new NYC Triumph ISO’s arrived!!!!
I’ve read and heard so many great reviews of this shoe.
I can’t wait to take them for a test run!!!
I made a new quinoa recipe for dinner tonight…really good!! I’ll write up the recipe soon, so keep an eye out for it!
Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday? If so, what do you do?
What brand of shoe did you first start running in? What brand do you wear now? My first pair was the Brooks Glycerin. Now I wear the Saucony Kinvara.
What are you having for dinner tonight?
