One week post marathon. How am I feeling? Pretty Tired.
While I took it easy last week running wise, I signed up for two races over the weekend (I don’t know what I was thinking about when I did this a couple of months ago). Two races a week after a marathon? Super smart Jocelyn…Real Genius.
These two races are part of my 9 plus 1 Guaranteed Entry into the NYC 2013 Marathon, so I am not really racing them.
So when I woke up Saturday morning, six days post marathon, the last thing I wanted to do was run a 10K in Central Park. Thank Goodness that Gia and Meggie were racing, and therefore I had people to meet on race day.
I ran (literally) into Amanda around mile 3, and we ran together until the 5.5 mile marker. That held me together until the end of the race. Nothing like a 10K on 5 hours of sleep.
Afterwards, Meggie and I walked 4 miles home (nothing like living in NYC), which was nice because it was a gorgeous day out.
Then, I had a Scavenger Hunt in the Lower East Side. Which I didn’t really know what to expect, however…IT. WAS. AWESOME.
Here are the highlights:

The Scavenger Hunt was super fun even though we came in 7th place out of 8 teams. Sad face. And we had our own personal photographer. NBD.
Now I feel like I need a weekend break to rest from my crazy weekend…do you ever feel like that?? Weekends need to be 4 days.
