Weekly Recap- March 23-29, 2015

This past week I enjoyed Spring Break although it was way too short and enjoyed a girls' weekend trip to Savannah for a race!

Monday-- rest.  We lost softball (and I was good again and didn't play.)



I found out that both Faith and I got into the Marine Corps Marathon!  I'm so excited!!

I met up with a friend for lunch at Crafted. We split the Artisanal Cheese Dip for an appetizer that was soooo good!   I had the Block & Blue Burger.  It was tasty too but a pretty normal burger.  I'd definitely go back for more of that cheese dip though!

Later that night, Meghan, Karen, and I attended the Orlando Meet and Sweet.  There were sooo many delicious treats to try!

Thursday--rest.  Kory and I went to see Insurgent at AMC's Fork & Screen.  I enjoyed the movie.

Friday--rest.  I got up early so we could head out to Savannah for our girls weekend in Savannah to run the Publix Savannah Women's Half Marathon!  We made a quick stop at Starbucks and then were off.

We hit up the expo first.

We walked around some, ate lots of yummy food, and checked into our hotel.

Saturday--Publix Savannah Women's Half Marathon.  13.30 miles in 2:17:46.  Mile 1: 8:25, Mile 2: 8:41, Mile 3: 9:31, Mile 4: 10:12, Mile 5: 10:04, Mile 6: 10:20, Mile 7: 10:29, Mile 8: 10:25, Mile 9: 10:49, Mile 10: 11:15, Mile 11: 11:13, Mile 12: 11:21, Mile 13: 11:39, Mile 13-13.3: 11:01, Average Pace: 10:21. Got a stitch in my side around 0.7 miles in so had to start intervals around 2.3 miles. Ankle started hurting around mile 3 and legs tightened up painfully around mile 7. I guess that's what happens when you run a a half when you haven't run in a month except for 4 races.

We ate lunch, rested and did some more shopping.  We ate more cupcakes and had a fancy, celebratory dinner!

Sunday--rest.  We got up and had breakfast before driving back home.

My friend gave me this perfect runner's Easter treat!

Total miles this week: 13.30
Total miles in 2015: 265.24
Total miles: 1871.68

2,015 in 2015 miles: 693.94
