I logged plenty of running miles this week, but I'm still nervous about the upcoming Boston Marathon...more about that in a post soon!
In the meantime, here are a few highlights of my week
I was just running along and saw that I wasn't alone, I had a buddy with me :)
A glimpse of the beautiful sky after one of my favorite runs this week-- a relaxed, fun 13 miler with Tappan on his bike next to me. I can't wait for his Achilles to heal up so that we can run together again!
I actually bought this from the liquor store a while ago, but I finally got around to photographing it this week when I was organizing my food/drink shelves... I love this fun fuzzy felt design! Yes, it came that way-- very odd and unexpected, but I actually really like it.
I've been LOVING pho from Mekong recently... I've been there 3 times in the past 2 weeks. So delicious with extra hot sauce on top :)
Another glimpse from one of my runs: the horses at Maymont park. I just can't get enough of the fact that I can go a few miles away from my home in multiple different directions and see such a variety of scenery, exploring never gets old!
Ever tried Pho (soup)? It's a deliciously soothing (and filling) treat, especially after a run on a warm day when you're craving a little extra salt to replace everything that you just sweated out :)
Do you run a variety of routes? I have a few standard 6 milers that I'll do if I just feel like putting on a Podcast and going onto auto-pilot. Otherwise, I like to explore a new route that I'll map out prior to leaving my house. For my "long runs," I like to have new scenery.
