I’ve been taking it easy as the final days of tapering are coming in.
Thursday final 6 miles at an easy pace in 51 minutes
Friday I decided my legs felt tired and decided to opt for a 10 mile elliptical session in 55 minutes.
After work I hit up the Saucony Running Panel I mentioned before. B It was pretty inspiring to hear other runners and their stories.
There was a beautiful video montage dedicated toB B Caballo Blanco (Micah True) B with some words from Ultra Marathoner Luis Escobar.
Afterwards Mark Herzlick of NY Giants told us how he found his strong through running
Followed by Karen Smyers, a triathlete told her story. Voted most likely to get eaten by a shark by Sport’s Illustrated, B she was quite adorable and cute. B I think she might be more accident prone then me!
Bill Rodgers followed Karen. B I think he had a mild ADD attack. B He was originally going to give us tips on finishing the marathon but instead told us all the times and places he DNF on the course. B I guess it was comforting to hear that even Boston Marathon winners and Olympic qualifiers sometimes just call it quits.
A very short Q&A
Afterwards the main event opened up.
The event was calledB Find your StrongB and I personally find all my strong at the bottom of a wine glass or three.
Followed by a visit to the coolest bathroom ever:
My parents are visiting with their dog so we had a situation:
Jack meet Rocky, Rocky meet Jack… please be friends.
Do you have pets? B Cats? Dogs? Both?
