So it’s Friday, and alas, we
should be ARE excited for the weekend. Weekend plans:
Tonight – Nothing, and I’m so happy about it.
Tomorrow – Long run, Junior League planning, Harpoon OktoberFest (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out THIS.)
Sunday – Cambridge Oktoberfest 5k and Bengals vs Patriots at Gillette
I’m so excited for a weekend in Boston, but with all that’s going on, I feel like it’s going to feel like a weekend away, but alas, what can you do.
I still owe you all a few race recaps, but until I get time to do those, let’s go with my favorites:
1. November Project / The Breakfast Club –
I feel like I’m always pointing this one out, but alas this is true. It gets me out of bed in the morning, and with Fall / Winter coming, that’s really all I can ask. I’ve been going to the Breakfast Club some on Tuesday and Thursdays, which is a great way to just get 6 miles in with friends.
And I’m so excited to have done some effortless recruiting today, a friend from my old job and Caitlin (check out her blog!), have both made #verbals to come next week.
2. Cambridge 5k Series –
If you live in Boston/Cambridge, and you haven’t checked out this run series in Cambridge, then you are missing out. Eddie and his team do a fabulous job of putting a number of races on throughout the year. Their t-shirts are hands down the best t-shirts I’ve ever gotten from a race (they beat out the tech ones)!
And honestly, I just have nothing but good things to say. They always have fast, flat, and fun courses. Last but not least, the after parties are filled with tons of food and BEER, always from great local breweries. So yes, if you’re in Boston/Cambridge, get out and run one ASAP.
3. EnergyBits –
