Book Blog Walkers: Weekly Check-in August 1


#BookBlogWalkers is being hosted by Jen @ That's What I'm Talking About for the month of August

I did it!!! I walked my second 1/2 marathon and had a great time doing it! Walking a half marathon in NYC at night with my mom, my sister and about 3,000 other women and some men in our bras was quite an experience...and I cannot wait to do it again. It's always been my goal to walk a full marathon and I think this is the venue to do that in - the time limit is much more lenient - you have 10 hours instead of 7 or 8 like you do with the normal marathons. Depending on how the year goes, I just might sign up to do the full marathon next year - if I can get my mom to do it with me!!!

Here's how my week went:  

Jul 26/27:  13.1 miles (1/2 marathon started at 10:30 pm & we did it in 3.5 hours)
Jul 28:  rest
Jul 29:  rest
Jul 30:  30 minutes

Jul 31:  30 minutes
Aug  1:  30 minutes

 
How did your week go?

  1. Awesome. Something you and your mother and sister will remember for ever. You are all amazing. I walked that day ( our afternoon- and it was cold!) and thought of you all over in New York.

    1. Thanks Kathryn! Yes, it was a great night and one that we will certainly remember for a long time! I think we had as much fun decorating our bras as we did walking!!!

  2. Great job!! That's really nice you did the marathon with your family, that makes it more fun and adds motivation! You and your mom will do great in full marathon (you have a good start to reaching that goal). Congratulations and have a great week!!
