Today was the Second Annual CDNY Eat Drink Blog brunch at Heather’s! Read about last year’s here. I can’t believe it’s been a year since I met these girls! We had a blast at the brunch today, but first, my long run!
I have a half marathon in three weeks! So today called for another long run, 10 miles to be exact. I headed to the Niskayuna Bike Path to get it done.
It was pretty busy when I got there early this morning! But I overheard someone say there was a bike race going on.
Ready, set, run.
It was my first time ever wearing a hat while running, and it was awesome! I look like a dork, though. 😉
I really loved running on this bike bath! You might remember Melissa and I running a wet run here about a month ago. Today was much nicer.
At mile 3.0 there is a pretty big hill (the rest of the trail is all flat), so I decided instead of stopping there and turning around I did a few hill repeats. And the view from the top was great!
At mile 6.7 I went back to my car for some Gu and water. It was getting pretty warm by then.
I ran the last three-ish miles in the opposite direction toward the Colonie Bike Path and then back again. The last mile was tough, but I did it.
Wahoo! I had to get home so I could get ready for the bunch!!!
I got there and Heather’s pancake station was in full swing!
I had three since I was famished after my run, and didn’t have time to refuel at home.
Definitely carb overload. 🙁 But, it was really tasty.
Hanging out with the greatest bloggers is always a good time. 🙂 There were way more of us before we finally realized we needed to take a picture, but by then there were only a few of us left.
(thanks Courtney for the photo!)
Well, I am exhausted. Off to veg out on the couch with Chris. 🙂 Hope you all are having a great weekend!
