Weekly Wrap for 6.11.18-6.17.18 – Running for Ice Cream


In NYC again but only for 3 days….

  • Monday – Back to traveling to NYC for work. Instead of a run since I had 5k the next day, I went for a walk. I wanted to find all the Grown Up Flowers and I stumbled upon many other interesting sights too.

I also saw another Broadway show which is now on my favorites list.

loved this show!!!!!!!

  • Tuesday – Another Brooklyn 5k.  This was not one of the cheap ones sponsored by the PPTC. It was the inaugural Brooklyn Ice Cream Social 5k.  You know that I couldn’t pass up a race that included ice cream. So I did the race, got my soft ice cream and even ran a course PR.

No age group awards. They will be announced by email and mailed (and I did win – yay!)

  • Wednesday – Rest day because I had to rush to catch my train to get home. (It was rainy anyway.)
  • Thursday –  Back home.  I had dinner with a former co-worker but did squeeze in a short run in the morning after a dentist appt.

my favorite local route – the rail trail – great on the way out but windy and uphill on the way back – still can’t complain about a sunny day

Before dinner, I actually (don’t faint) spent a few minutes in the gym and then we went for a walk (on the same route as my morning run.)

  • Friday – Truly a rest day.  Just work. I even skipped mah jongg.
  • Saturday – Got up early to meet some friends to run. Many runners were racing today (yes, I was tempted) so we combined two groups and met in a new locale. Although the route was completely flat, the run felt harder than last week. But I think it was not carrying any food or water with more humid temps could have factored in. Of course, we went out to brunch afterwards.

  • SundayBoating Sunday.  This could become a habit and a nice one. Since my hubby had gone up the night before, I had some unrushed time in the morning to go for a run.

we were asked to run today for Megan, a SS ambassador who was shot and her son killed. #skirtsportsrunformegan

It finally felt like a real summer day. 80 degrees!! (If only the water would warm up…)

so relaxed that I read a whole book and we stopped for dinner after (view in the top pic)

  2. Another fabulous week for you! I love the idea of an ice cream race: two of my favorite things right there!

    Making a habit out of “boating Sunday” sounds like a wonderful idea to me! Enjoy them!


  3. good week! I’d have not only done that ice cream run in a heartbeat, I’d have gone to see School of Rock with you as well! FUN!!

    I was on target last week with running – officially 1st week of marathon training is in the books. As for what is new with me… nothing much really. I’ve got a bit of a fire to really take care of things in the house now that I’ve started so hopefully I can see those projects finished before the end of the year. Lord knows I can’t just do nothing ha!

    • Yes, it doesn’t seem like you just sit around lol.

      I have things to do around the house but I am much more likely to go for a run.

      You need to come to the US!!


  4. I can’t believe you ran over 8 miles without hydration. I’d be dying this time of year. Our water temp is in the 80’s and YES I finally made it to the lake this weekend! WHOOT. Of course you’d run an ice cream 5k…and place in your age group. You’re just doing your thing! 😉 Thanks for linking!
