Ok... so Boston 2014 is behind us.
The beard crossed the finish line.
The beard is now gone...
Having some fun while shaving :)
Though I miss the beard. I'm glad that it's gone. Way too much maintenance for me. One of the reasons I shave my head is because I like to get up and go. Ain't nobody got time for that!
So what now? Not sure. Been taking the time to rest my body. I have had achy feet for most of Boston training. Never really complained about it because there was NOTHING that was going to stop me from crossing that finish line! So I have been resting. I have done a couple runs here and there, but nothing crazy. Maybe a total of 15-20 miles in the past 3 weeks.
Races coming up? I signed up for the Johnny Kelly Half Marathon. It's actually my wife's fist half. Since I really haven't trained for it, my plans is stick with her to the finish. I am so excited for her! She's been training hard for this and will do great! Can't wait to see her cross the finish line!
I haven't signed up for any other races in the near future. I'm sure once I start feeling back to 100% that will change. Just don't want to think about it right now. I honestly don't even want to think about a fall marathon right now either. My heart was set on the NYC marathon, but then I didn't get selected in the lottery. I have no strong desire to do any other (right now).
Sometime back in February, after a few beers with some friends, I apparently agreed to and signed up for a Spartan Race in September. But not just any Spartan race like the one I did last year - a 5k sprint.
Oh no... that's not manly enough to do. Especially after a few beers. I signed up for the Spartan Beast! A 12+ mile Obstacle Race from Hell in the hills of Killington Vermont (according to their website).
Yay.... I'm gonna die....
So that's it from the "And So it Burns" headquarters. I haven't been posting much lately and I have pretty much given up on posting on the And So it Burns Facebook page. Not that anyone has missed it. I just dont know how other people have time to post all the time on their Blog Facebook page. I dont even have time to post on my personal page. Eh... my posts will come in spurts. I believe in quality, not quantity :)
Have a great week everyone!!
