KUDOS to all those NYC Marathon champs! Way to go. That race is intense on many levels. Our own “Ice Man” (from Friday) had a great showing and we are all SUPER proud his feat. I think I’d sleep with that medal for at least a week. You can stay updated on all the news and recaps from the race over at The New York Times Marathon section. Does anyone else think that if Al Roker can do the race, so could you?
These weekends are getting too darn short. It’s a marathon to squeeze everything in to two days.
For the second year in a row some friends and I attended the Chomp and Stomp Festival – a local festival featuring a chili cook-off, 5K run, art market, and beer! I mean is there a more perfect combination? I am not a huge fan of chili, but I love the beer. The weather was perfect for an outdoor festival.
Sunday I worked off the festival by helping Norak train. I must admit it was a lot of fun! She’s practicing her distance, and I’m practicing my patience teaching her, kidding. We are working on opening up her tiny little stride. I am giving her my Garmin Forerunner this week, should be interesting to see how she likes it. Right now she doesn’t have a strong way to gauge distance, and the Garmin will help her mark routes.
I cannot friggin wait to take this woman shopping though. You don’t realize the importance of good gear until you try it out.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Anybody have highlights to share from the NYC Marathon weekend?
