After the amazingness of last weekend (family, friends, shopping, wine, marathon, cake), you may be concerned that this one could be a let down. Don't worry, that's far from the case. This weekend is going to another epic one.
Two of my BFFs from college are coming to visit for a Geneseo School of Education people we like reunion. This is huge, because the last time the three of us were together was over a year ago, and it's the first time my friend Nikki is spending a night away from her daughter. Obviously, the pressure is on to make this weekend one to remember, but we have an excellent track record with that.

Yesterday, I noticed my legs were feeling almost back to normal. There was a Brooks sponsored group run at the store, and a huge group of my running friends showed up. We did six miles around the harbor and I added in a little before and after to bring my total to ten miles. This was the first time in over a week that I've run with a watch (that's like an eternity for me). My average pace was 9:04, which really surprised me, I expected to be much slower only 4 days post-race.
I had a training on shoe inserts last night, which meant I didn't get home for the day and eat dinner until around 10pm. I tried so hard to get up at 5am to run, but it just didn't happen. I really hate running in the evening, so hopefully next week I can get my sleep schedule back on track.
Do you like having people visit you from out of town? I love it, except I'm stressed because this week has been so super busy that my hostess skills are going to be severely lacking.
