Vermont City Marathon Update

So this isn't my race report, yet.  I know, 3 days post-marathon, I should be able to get a race report up but this will be a good one, I promise.  I am waiting for pictures to make it that much better.

I did finish the marathon in 5:23.  This was my slowest marathon, but instead of running my race, I ran my husband's race.  It was one of my favorite marathons to date as I hadn't run with Eric since our first marathon, 4 1/2 years ago.

Recovery-wise, I am doing great.  My legs feel great, which as I will explain in my report was what I was hoping for.  I started triathlon training yesterday and hit the pool for a crazy hard workout.  I literally thought I was going to drown, but it felt so good after I was done.  I will be returning to the pool again today for a rematch.

I also got new bike shoes this weekend, so am hoping to get some practice riding in with clipping in and out later on this week.  I am so nervous about this but also excited.  I am really looking forward to some longer rides on the weekends and I am hoping this makes it that much easier.

And, then there is life that gets in the way.  The three day weekend was AMAZING.  Coming back on Tuesday with having done nothing for the weekend and starting school, made for a scrambling day yesterday.  I am much more organized now, but did start my 8 weeks summer session so I am going to be super busy this summer.  Blogging may take a back burner until the end of July, but I am not going away.    My first Anatomy and Physiology II class was last night and it is a LOT LOT LOT of work.  Four nights a week for that class and an online class will leave me at my computer this whole summer but two classes closer to applying to Grad school so I won't complain, too much.

Hopefully you all had a good weekend.  I do plan on catching up on blogs eventually.  And please come back to check out my race report, it will be good.  :)
