State #16, Half #18: 9/25-10/1 Weekly Wrap

It’s somewhat short and sweet this week, because what promised to be a crazy week got even crazier midweek and I was feeling really run down (before that) so there wasn’t really a whole lot of activity. Aside from a little half marathon.

Running updates 


My sweat was sweating. And I was on the treadmill representing the #brasquad (and decided to spare you that photo). When I opened the door to let Bandit out in the morning, even though I had grand plans of getting that run in early in the morning, but I just thought oh hell no!

I would have done it outside if I thought my race was going to be anything close to those conditions — so far it’s supposed to be almost perfect running weather. I never trust them, though. Still pretty sure it won’t be as humid or a high of 90 on race day.

Nothing much to say about this on this run. It got done. Just one more to go! 

And it was almost 10 minutes faster than my last 6 mile easy run!


Myself & 9 runner friends ran Wineglass today. We had a half virgin who rocked her race, a few PRs (spoiler: one of them was mine) & a good time was had by all. 

No mad sushi making skills

Favorites of the week
A while back Mr. Judy said it was a shame that we never went to the Culinary Institute to take a cooking class. Like, over a year ago. That’s the sort of thing I squirrel away. So I told him to pick a class at a nearby cooking school for his birthday. He decided on a sushi making class at a different school, as he knows the sushi chef from work.

Can’t say my rolls were a work of art but it made for a fun dinner.

And that’s a wrap 


This week I am also linking up with the Sunday Fitness & Food Linkup brought to you by Ilka @ Ilka’s Blog and Angela @ Marathons & Motivation.

Let’s get the conversation started:

What do you do if you feel run down before a race?

Race reports, please! How’d those races go this weekendMadd? 

What’s a race on your bucket list?

  1. Ohh! So much fun! I hope that you had a wonderful time at Wineglass! Enjoy some of the wineries before you go home! My personal fav is Ravines. Can’t wait to hear all about it. One of my bucket list races is Gasparilla down in Florida. It’s 4 races completed over two days.

  3. Feeling rundown?? Well, you rocked that race.

    Wineglass was on my list and there are too many on my list to mention including Paris!!

    Next up is Vegas.

    You were there so you know my race this past weekend was fine but if I pushed myself I could have easily PR’d. I’m fine with having a decent race.

    1. Believe me, I was not feeling great last week. Not sick, just extremely run down. I skipped Thursday’s run (wise decision).

      I had to dig really deep for it; it wasn’t like FL where about 3/4 of the race felt easy.


  4. Congrats on your PR! I can’t wait for the full recap!

    The cooking class looks really fun, I should see if I can find something similar in my area!

  5. It’s fantastic to hear you ran YET ANOTHER PR at Wineglass! I’m looking forward to your recap. I think the sushi lesson would be fun. Cooking class and Art class all rolled together (pun intended). Thanks for linking!
