A Blessed Weekend

This past weekend I was back home in Western Massachusetts. I couldn't have asked for a better homecoming. The weekend with Kerry was great. The highlight...going to church together! I had no idea that going to church alone could be so lonely after going together for so many years. So, sitting there together, listening, singing, praying, I felt at such peace. A truly blessed feeling.

While in town, we hit up our favorite restaurants, went out with friends, participated in a charity 5k that a friend puts on, Move 4 Behcets & Arthritis, and really just enjoyed our time together. It was very hard to leave on Sunday. Thankfully, I'm going back again soon!

Even though I was "vacationing," I didn't let it stop me from getting out for a run with Ted. Training for the ING NYC Marathon must go on. We did a fun 18 mile run on the roads and rail trails. When I say fun, I really do mean it. After training 11 weeks alone, having someone to run with is a treat.

Below is the map. Here are some stats:
18.07 miles
8:56 min/mile pace
131 bpm average HR
The kicker, miles 16 (8:16), 17 (8:18) and 18 (7:52) to close out the run.

Told you it was a good day and a great weekend!
