Running Update: 10.30.17-11.5.17


Last Week: Taper Time

  • Monday – The rain finally stopped but it was ridiculously windy all day. I met up with Alyssa for a short run after work.

The wind even calmed down.

Afterwards I met up with my BFF for an overdue mall walk (instead of volunteering with STEM).

  • Tuesday – Off to Rochester for work with a stop in Liverpool on the way.  And no matter how late I arrived, I was determined to get in a run in Rochester either along Lake Ontario or along the Erie Canal path. Due to impeding darkness, I decided on the canal hoping that it would be lit up.

Nope. No lights on the Erie Canal but luckily it wasn’t dark yet. But it was windy and 40 degrees. Brrrr

  • Wednesday – It was cold and pouring rain so I drove back to Liverpool. No running today. Sometimes, it’s ok to rest 🙂
  • Thursday – Another rainy day but the rain stopped by the time I was done with work. And it warmed up too. So I ran along Onondaga Lake, one of my favorite work places to run. It was great but NO lights so I guess this will be my last one until March. 😢

Almost 30 degrees warmer than Tuesday!

  • Friday – Another rainy day and a long drive drive home so I decided to skip the run.
  • Saturday – For the second Saturday in a row, the Wineglass ladies met up for a run. I couldn’t decide if I should run 12 or taper 8 for my half marathon. So I compromised and ran 10.  Two solo and then 10 easy miles with Jeri, a fun new running buddy. Afterward we went out to breakfast, of course. Yes, food gets me through my long runs.

Chilly at the start but warmed up to a perfect running day on the bike path

  • Sunday – Rest day Sunday. Watching the NYC Marathon (Shalane wow!) and other household chores ending with our anniversary mah jongg dinner.

Missing a few of the gang. 9 years and going strong.

21 miles done.

This Week: Race Week

  • Monday –  3 miles with AlyssaSTEM run (2 miles)
  • Tuesday rest,  tennis
  • Wednesday drive to Liverpool, 3 mile run??
  • Thursday restdrive home
  • Friday – flight to Las Vegas!!
  • Saturday -RnR Vegas 5k
  • Sunday -RnR Vegas Half Marathon

So this is getting real.  I can’t believe that I am leaving for Vegas this week.

I am packed (or over- packed).  I arrive around noon on Friday and booked a shuttle to the hotel (Tropicana).  I plan to hit the expo and hopefully find some friendly faces to connect with. Then on Sat. am, I have a bus trip to Red Rock Canyon.  I can’t wait to see it.  Afterward, my roomie Marcia arrives and we’ll get the fun started.

Anyone else going to be there??  Any recommendations of things to do while in Vegas??

  1. Enjoy Vegas!! Wish I was going 🙂
    I love all the paved paths options you have…I would get a good headlamp and be running all the time! My Diamond Sprinter is actually super light and very bright. I just have boring neighborhoods and cars most of the time…eeeks!


  2. Oh, I’m sure you’ll have a ton of fun.

    RnR puts on some really great talks, btw, or at least they used to. I saw a panel with Meb . . . except being a new runner, I had no idea who he was!

    Much as I love Vegas & would love to meet new bloggers, I’m happy to be home. There was plenty of travel this year!


  3. You’re packed?? Okay I’d better go start throwing some stuff together. I need to know more about this hotel shuttle. I planned on grabbing an Uber. Can’t wait to see you!


    • I have to travel for work and won’t be home until late Thurs. The shuttle is only $15 round trip. Worth it.

      I’m in corral 9 for the 5k and 11 for the half. And you?



  4. Wait… are you Jewish?? The only people I’ve ever known to play mah jongg are ladies at my temple. I tried to play once and I have no idea what I was doing. Lol!

    Anyways — have an AMAZING TIME in Vegas!!! You guys will have so much fun!!


  5. Yep, resting is OK. I just wonder why it is so hard to do? LOL. I can’t wait to hear about the Vegas trip. I hope you connect with a lot of other people. And, run a mile for ol’ HoHo! Thanks for linking!
