6 easy miles on the treadmill at 5am this morning. First run since the marathon and I felt great. Don't get me wrong, my slow pace felt fast, but I did not have any aches or pains. What a great way to kick off my birthday! I made sure to spend a good 15-20 minutes rolling around on the foam roller after I finished my run.
While I was on the treadmill, I chatted with one of the guys from the Y who was running next to me. It just so happens to be the same person I ran with during most of the marathon. Anyway, we were discussing the Rock CF Half Marathon and he said his wife signed up with him. I also found out one of my other running buddies and his girlfriend signed up as well. I planned on running this but thought about how great it would be if my husband would run it too. Chris said he wanted to try a half marathon one day, so why not make it the Rock CF half? I called him as soon as I left the gym. I told him my Y running friends and their spouses are running it and how I'd like him to run it too. He agreed! I am totally pumped! It will be his first half marathon and I am so excited to help him train. I made sure to register us both as soon as I got to work this morning. If you are thinking about running this, I have a $5 off coupon code. Just let me know if you'd like it.
