Running Update: 8.14.17-8.20.17


Last Week:

  • Monday – Hey, a sunny day.  You have to run even if you are exhausted. And that’s what I did but decided to run at UAlbany because it was close by.

all in pink 🙂

  • Tuesday. Had to drive to Liverpool for work. It started to rain when I headed out the door to run. I was patient and waited out the rain and was able to run along the lake before dinner.

After dinner, I went back to watch the sunset.

  • Wednesday –  Nothing exciting happened today except for work and a long drive back afterwards.  Before I left for home, I set out for a short 2 mile ice cream run.

if you’re ever in Liverpool, NY, you have to have ice cream at Vicky’s.

  • Thursday – I ran with Alyssa for our weekly run date. For a change, we chose the Crossings.

Guess where we ended our run?

  • Friday – A scheduled rest day.  Rest was definitely needed!!

On a sad note.  My cat, Billy has been missing a week.  He is 12 and an outdoor cat.  I fear, at our neighbor’s garage sale, he got into some stranger’s car.  Although, he’s not one of our favorites and he is pretty aloof, I still miss him.

Billy is the gray one. Now we ONLY have 3 cats. LOL I’m still a “cat lady.”

  • Saturday –  Another rest day without much rest. Sue and I took a very early morning train to NYC. We had an awesome day touring the city including walking over the Brooklyn bridge and taking a boat to Governors Island. We walked 13.1 miles the day before our race.

  • Sunday – Today I ran the France 8K Run in Central Park, NYC. Any race in Central Park is a challenge but I had a blast.

After the race, we walked the High Line and around Chelsea Market and Bryant Park before taking the bus home. 15.2 miles. Phew!

18.5 miles running done. (23.3 miles walking in one weekend!!)

This Week:

  • Monday – 3 mile run, mall walk with bff
  • Tuesday – 3 mile run with Judyfuneral (instead of travel for work), tennis
  • Wednesday 4 mile run after work
  • Thursday rest, dinner out with tennis buds
  • Friday – rest, mah Jong
  • Saturday –  long run, watch the hubby in tennis championship matches, dinner with Wineglass ladies
  • Sunday – watch the hubby in tennis championship match, boating after

  1. I am exhausted reading your recap! Actually, I”m just exhausted. I think the dental surgery took more out of me than I expected. Looking forward to reading your race recap!


  2. I hate it when cats disappear – we’ve had that happen too many times over the last 30 years. I always hope the same thing, that they have found a new family to love them and that they are are safe and happy – and I hope that for Billy, too.


  3. Did I tell you my first race ever was going to be in Central Park? But my sister and I changed our minds — as tourists and I think we found it too hard to get to registration (or something). Anyway, I really regret not doing it! Your sunset on lake Onondaga is lovely! Sorry about Billy. I hope someone has given him a new home!
