First off I want to say please keep those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon in your prayers.  I still cannot understand why anyone would do such a horrible thing. Thankfully my husband and I got out about 45 minutes before the bombings and had just gotten off the subway when it happened.  I have never been so thankful that Wes is a fast runner.

On a much more positive note, Wes did amazing.  He finished with a time of 2:37.  It was a not a PR but after being injured and having to take almost 3 weeks off I am so so proud of his accomplishments.

After Marathon

He was in pain but he finished, he did amazing, and he continues to be my constant inspiration!

Running Boston

Even though he was running very fast I was able to snap a quick picture of him as he passed me. This was right after he blew me a kiss – always makes my heart melt 🙂

Boston Day

The runners could not have asked for a better day weather wise. It was in the high 50’s, sunny, and much better than the 85 degrees that they faced last year when running.

I have to admit I took pretty much every day this weekend off from working out. I did walk A LOT while we were down there, but I did let my guard down a bit with the workouts and food, and I was OK with that.  This was my husbands weekend and outside of one small break down I wanted to make sure he knew that.

We only got about 2 hours of sleep last night before I had to get back up and head to work, so I took today off to try and unpack and get things back to normal.  My goal for the next couple weeks is to LEAN OUT. I am going to be incorporating a good amount cardio back into my routine.  I plan on still sticking to my weight lifting plan with Carrie but I need to lean out and get back down to a much better weight for me.

I will continue to post what I do and I will let everyone know the cardio I add outside the plan.  Once I get back down to the weight I am looking to be at and lean out I will cut back on the cardio some to maintain.  I can’t wait to see the results on my body once I lean out and get rid of a little bit of excess weight.

Looking forward to getting back into it!

I will leave you with a picture that I posted on my instagram earlier today. #hugarunner today!
