Throughout April there were a ton of other fun highlights. Of course we continued to meet on Thursdays to run as a group. I was also running with Jamie to help get her ready for the Tar Heel 10 miler — we would meet 2-3 times a week to run and did her long run on Wednesday nights. It was always challenging to run on Wednesday night for so long, but we had a great time talking and often grabbed a bite of something to eat afterwards.
I did my first marathon training run over 15 miles in April as well — an 18 miler which I ran with different combinations of running buddies. I killed two birds with one stone also earning a virtual half marathon medal for a Girls on the Run fundraiser. The inspiration from the medal came about after a controversial photo was posted in Self Magazine saying that tutus at races are “out” and the photo they used was two women dressed in fabulous superhero attire with tutus racing and one of the two women was also battling brain cancer. I am definitely pro-tutu wearing at races.
