Starting off this post by saying a big CONGRATULATIONS to my friend Olivia who completed her first marathon today in Detroit! Go Liv!
And more congratulations to other friends who ran the Detroit full/half, Grand Rapids full/half, and Columbus full/half! This was a big racing weekend.
I’m still recovering from the Purdue Half yesterday, and I’m more sore that I thought I would be. My legs felt okay right after the race, but they were pretty dead for the rest of the day. So instead of moving, I gathered everything I might need (e.g. studying stuff, Halloween tv, food, water, blankets because I seriously couldn’t get warm) and parked myself on the couch for the next few hours.
And then Andrea and I painted pottery! She found a good deal on groupon, so we had a “pottery for 2” date as a reward for working so hard all of the time (except for this afternoon, which was spent 95% with the Halloweentown marathon). I thought about painting a cute monster bank but decided on a practical bowl, and Andrea settled on the biggest dish she could find (a football-shaped platter). The football dish took a long time to paint, and next time Andrea chooses an obscenely large piece of pottery, I am supposed to tell her that she will regret it. Though I think the football plate turned out very nicely. Both of our pieces look pastel/Easterish/babylike, but they will look much cooler after they’re fired.
When I woke up on Sunday, my glutes, hamstrings, and quads reminded me that Saturday’s race happened, so I took the day off to recover. It was so pretty outside this afternoon that my mind wanted to run, but my legs said definitely not. Instead, I called my sister Laura and my friend Sarah to catch up, and I watched Halloween movies while studying.
What do you put on your froyo?
Any fun runs/races this weekend?
