Hartford Marathon Training – Week 1

Just like that, the first week of training for The Hartford Marathon is in the books! I’m feeling really good & really excited about where I’m at. With a solid base and some serious motivation, I can see a PR in my future 🙂 13 more weeks until race day!

With the boyfriend gone to a softball tournament & absolutely no plans, I spent the weekend getting my life together and loved every single minute of it. I swear this was the most productive weekend of my entire life. This meant a surprise brunch with my cousin & his girlfriend, cleaning the entire apartment, working on the blog, studying for my PT cert, playing with Bruin, running & yoga, meal planning & grocery shopping, reading, learning how to use my camera, and so much more. Almost everything is crossed off my to do list. I’m feeling very accomplished 🙂
