RAD Reads & Weekly Review: May 5, 2013

Today I ran my 5th half marathon and got a crazy good PR!!
I still can’t believe that I have already run 5 half marathons. Something I never thought possible. Today was the Long Branch Half Marathon in NJ. It was a special race for me because not only was it run through towns where I grew up, but the finish line was right where B and I got married 🙂 Also, after all the destruction from Hurricane Sandy in 2012, it was great to support the community and show my Jersey Pride. I’ll have a full recap this week.
Interesting week on RAD with a combination of bruised knees, animals and cocktails…check it out:
- Burpees = Bruised Knees
- New to Me – Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Friday Feast: Lapu Lapu at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
This week has really gotten away from me and I have severely fallen behind on my blog reading, so sadly I don’t have any RAD Reads for you this week. But I will definitely have a slew in store next Sunday for your reading pleasure 🙂
But, I did see this incredible video today that I need to share with the world. You’re welcome…
Great week and I felt really strong…let’s go! As always, to see the full description of my WODs, visit my dailymile page.
Monday: CrossFit: Squats & Burpees
Tuesday: CrossFit: Dead Lifts & Jerks
Wednesday: CrossFit: 20 min of Helen
Besides having some really good WODs and getting a killer PR, I also had a wonderful few days of seeing good friends who I haven’t seen in quite a while. First was my friend Stephen (a.k.a. Suede) who I haven’t seen in a few years, but who has continued to be a wonderful friend to B and I. We met for lunch on Saturday before the race. Then my best friend from high school, Jeremi, who I recently reconnected with after over 10 years came to see me run today. It was amazing to see her again and meet her 4 year old daughter. It was like no time had passed at all.
But because I am totally lame, I didn’t get a photo with either…ugh. But here are two of my favs from days past…
Great weekend of running, friends and fun…once again, I’m a lucky gal.
