The Fairest Week In Review: 10/31

Whew. Okay. Big week, guys, big week. Today is Halloween, so good tidings and felicitations and all that. A mere handful of days ago I completed my fourth Marine Corps Marathon. And on Friday morning, I’m heading to… WALT DISNEY WORLD!!!! for my fourth Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend. In a word: YES. I DEMAND DARKWING DUCK MAKE A REPEAT APPEARANCE. But currently I reside in tapertown/post-marathon-nothingnesstown. Workout log, roll tape: Sunday | rest Well, sort of. We went to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and according to my phone walked about 7 miles. Monday | walked 2.12 miles outside in 35 minutes;...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/01

Well. The Marine Corps Marathon. It happened. Spoiler alert: I did not make a PR. 🙁 Were, technically. I was wrong. But I tried. It’s like I skipped all the Halloween parties for NOTHING.

I mean, there were some mitigating circumstances I’ll talk about later this week, but I have work to do. MOON: Hahahaha, at least it was 3 seconds faster instead of slower. 😀 JENN: There is that!

Marine Corps Marathon Expo

In Which Jenn Recaps the Marine Corps Marathon Expo

And now – my recap of the Marine Corps Marathon experience! Yay! My marathon adventure began with a quick trip on the Metro. I live just outside of DC already, but it would’ve been a pain getting to the race start from Bethesda, so – SLEEPOVER WITH NICOLE in DC proper! Yay! Nicole picked me up from Dupont and after a brief stop at her place to drop off some of my stuff we sped off to the Expo. People. Do not go to the Expo on Saturday. We waited in an ENORMOUS line. I’d say we were in line...
