Week of August 3 - 9

Congratulations to Charley and Katy who were married on Saturday (yes, I own a tie as proof by the photo!).

It was a wonderful ceremony that we thoroughly enjoyed. I have known Charley, Blake, Matt and Taylor Murphy since I was in high school and would run past their house often while training. I would quite often see four little noses pressed against the window as I ran by and would sometimes be offered water on a hot day. I also had the opportunity to coach all of them when they were in high school and have remained friends since.
It was so nice seeing them, Joe T. and everyone else on the weekend and getting caught up. Great to see everyone so happy.

Training Summary:
~ Big week starting off with the end of our vacation in the Adirondacks and finishing with a 5hr run on Sunday. Had a few aches and pains from last weekend in the mountains and the additional hiking involved on top of all the running mileage, but was great training. I fell hard during my run on Thursday as well which caused some hip/glute pain in addition to compensating for a few days. All seems pretty good now, other than a bit of stiffness after yesterday. Great week.
