It seems rather odd to say this, but The Boy is not running a marathon today.
He has, after all, run a marathon each of the last three weekends. But this weekend is dedicated to rest. Neither of us even felt up to running a 5k race today.
Rest. It’s important.
However, I did want to mention last week’s marathon – a first-ever (of course).
The Inaugural Irving Marathon and Half Marathon has a bit of work to do on logistics (start time, lack of water/cups issues, a course that has 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon runners looping back on one another on narrow trails), but otherwise was a lot of fun. Great volunteers (extremely important), great sponsors (special shout out to la Madeleine for the masses of fruit, coffee and bread) and a convenient location.
And it had a very cool medal. That’s a big plus in my book.

I got that day from running?
