To Feel Good Again

Saturday we traveled along what I am sure is the longest road in America (I-26, its the worst) to Spartanburg for my friend Steph and her new husband Patrick to be married.  There were quite a few people from my class there and we had a great time with the little mini reunion.  The wedding was beautiful as was Steph; just stunning.  The wedding was Kentucky Derby themed (him being from Kentucky) and we all got derby glasses from different years as our favors, so cool and unique!  We had such a fabulous time dancing the night away and Steph and Patrick closed out the night with a swing dance to Footloose (don’t worry, she had a different dress on)!

They rode off on a tandem bicycle with cans dragging of course.  It was so them.  Steph is a friend that I run with often, though not lately due to proximity.  I am sure now that we are both back in Charleston again, we will tackle many more roads together; her a new MRS!!

Case and I

Case and I

Sunday was pretty much a lost day.  After getting back, we were so worn out we pretty much just lazed around trying to recover.

Today was the re-kick off of my 6 week goals: 180 miles, 180 minutes of stretching and 1800 push ups.  It is also the kick off of Runner’s World Run Streak to run at least one mile every day until July 4th.  Game on!

Thank goodness I finally had my first run that I actually felt good on in weeks today.  I learned in the past week that just because you aren’t unable to peel yourself off the couch doesn’t mean you aren’t sick.  Recovering from illness might as well be recovering from a marathon.  Really, your body and immune system are working over time to get you better, just like it does in a race.  Fingers crossed I will continue to be in the clear tomorrow (I still have a lingering cough and sniffles, but I am on the up and up)!

Hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!  Any one else doing the Runner’s World Run Streak?!

  1. You are so right about the sickness thing- a few weeks ago with Race the Landing ahd Mom’s Run, I learned that first hand… nothing like some rough times to show you that it always takes your workouts longer to recover from illness even if you feel well enough to go about your activities of daily life. May’s just been a rough, rough, month for me even though it started out nice. Gonna have to find a doc for this ankle asap, ugh.

    It looks like you had fun at the wedding and I like the pic of you guys, I do agree I-26 sucks and I hate it, that’s where my friend’s son was killed so I always think about that, but it’s ALWAYS backed up and crazy traffic.

  2. The wedding sounded like so much fun! Love your “180” goals..great idea. I didn’t know about the runner’s streak and will try my best to run every day! Thanks for filling me in.
