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:

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…

Weekly Review
Great week and I felt really strong…let’s go!  As always, to see the full description of my WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest

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…
