There are 93 days until the NYC Marathon. Past NYC marathon runners: How did you do it?! How did you train in this miserable heat?  Send advice!

Last weekend we escaped to Maine to visit Acadia National Park. We LOVED it. I wrote about hiking and bike in Maine. Check out those posts here:

Here’s the full recap from week four of marathon training:

Hi there! It’s been a fabulous whirlwind since I last posted. Last Saturday, Matt and I got married!  I can’t thank our friends and our family enough for making it the most magical weekend of my life.  It was better than I even allowed myself to imagine.

I could talk about the wedding weekend forever. But before we get to that, let’s talk about the week of workouts leading up to the wedding:

Monday: 30-minute training session. I’ve been seeing Leo Pinto of Leo Results Fitness. I can’t recommend him enough! Full post on this coming soon.

Last weekend I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler for the second time.

I love this race since it’s largely flat and 10 miles is a great distance. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying it’s easy. I still have to train for something like this. (Wisdom: Train for all races!) Personally, I cannot *wing* a 10 mile race, but I could maybe wing a 4 mile one.

And about that training, it only went so so. I’ve been running slower than this time last year, I have no idea why. But it’s fine. I think these ups and downs are to be expected.

Anyway, we took the train down and got to DC at 2pm on Saturday. We dropped our stuff off at our hotel. I like to pick a hotel walking distance from the race start. Even if we end up taking a cab to the race (which we did) it’s nice to have the option to walk home.

Happy Monday, guys! If you live on the east coast are you preparing for the blizzard that’s coming our way? How do you ready yourself? Do you have a go-to storm shopping list? I’m already stir crazy just thinking about the weather. I was going to bear witness to the madness at my local Whole Foods, but Matt assures me we can walk to Shun Lee in case of emergency.

New Yorkers: Do you order in during a storm? It’s a city-dwellers ethical dilemma.

Last week was a great one and it ended with my first-ever Cycle for Survival experience.
