Three Things Thurs

1. My legs weren't too happy with me after Kinetic. On Sunday I felt like a little old lady hobbling around. I wanted to go for a recovery swim, but enjoyed my laziness and did nothing all day besides visit my mother-in-law for mother's day. It was glorious. The laziness continued onto Monday. I really wanted to swim again, but going at 8:30 at night just didn't seem worth it and I allowed myself another day with no workouts. But, by Tues I was ready to get back at it and have hit all my workouts since then.
2. While running yesterday along the SW waterfront trail I saw multiple Mulberry Trees! OMG I can't even explain how excited I was and still am!!!! I love mulberries, they are so tasty and well I can never find them in the stores anywhere. I had a tree in my back yard growing up and used to eat them all the time. So, when I saw the berries laying on the trail, I knew to look up. Right away, I started picking them off the tree and eating them :) Jason as annoyed because he just wanted to finish the run, but I told him I would catch back up to him. People kind of looked at me funny because I don't think a lot of people know that these are not poison-ness berries. Anyhow, I was so happy. I wish I wasn't so busy because I want to go back with a zip lock bag and actually pick them.... hopefully they are not too ripe in a couple of days.
3. We are headed back down to Fredericksburg VA again this weekend. Jason will be racing in the Marine Corp Marathon Historic Half. I can't wait to cheer him on and run with him for some of the race.
Happy Thurs All :)


  1. An extra recovery day here and there can do wonders for you! Good job in listening to your body and being lazy! LOL

  2. Recovery is underrated - enjoy every minute of it - it will make you hungrier to work hard when you do get back in the swing of things! I didn't know that mulberries weren't poisonous - I also have no idea what they look like.

  3. #1: Just shows you left it all out there on the course! You did EXCELLENT for your first Half!!!
