The mental fatigue from the weekend made for a rough Monday at work. Not only was I exhausted, I had about zero brain power to tackle the long list of tasks that welcomed me after a 3 day weekend. The result? I was there 10 hours for what probably should have taken 6. Oh well. That evening, I was able to unwind with a sunset walk with the pup and husband and it was truly the best way to loosen up my legs. Never mind that the view was incredible:

Tuesday I went for a morning swim. I used to hate the water, but for some reason I find it therapeutic these days? It wasn't a productive workout but splashing around was fun. That evening we enjoyed another short stroll this time with a little fro-yo treat.
Mountain Masochist Trail Run (November 2, 2013)
I'm glad I waited to look at the elevation profile until AFTER I signed up. Yea, feeling a bit terrified right now:
The husband and I are suppose to run together which should be fun! My dad will serve as my crew too (though I;m not sure he knows that yet, haha). It will be my longest race ever, likely 9+ hours. On the bright side, this will make Boston feel like a walk in the park... At least I hope? I guess it doesn't really matter at this point... Fun times ahead...
