2015 race week (ish) recap

2015 race season is almost officially over. It's been eight days since the Houston Marathon and I think I am finally almost recovered. So much happened in the weeks before and after the race.

I tried to cook and eat healthy for as long as I could until I moved into the hotel. I told myself I would try to run at least two miles a day during race week. Two days was as much as I could manage. Race weekend was looong. Early morning and late nights. But I got to catch up with people I hadn't seen since last year. The twin came to town to help. A friend PR'ed by 5 minutes. Two of my ambassadors qualified for Boston. Most of my ambassadors were amazing. And then it was over. I'm finally back to cooking. ish. The struggle post-race is real. I've run twice since it ended. But I have big plans for the rest of this year.

Since I'm still in my post-race fog, how about you just look at all these pics instead of listening to me ramble? K? thanks.

Love my photo prop for the EXPO

One week to go, trying to still eat good food

  1. Looks like a fun, albeit exhausting, week! Just makes me already excited for next year's race already. :) Where does one get that half salad, half burger lunch??

    1. That lunch was in the restaurant in the Hilton Americas lobby. A coworker and I shared the full salad and burger and they served them split like that...amazing!
