This weekend was great for activity.
My husband & I took the subway to Cambridgeside Galleria for me to pick up my bib and tee shirt for the Cambridge 5K Craicfest.
Then, since the weather was a spring like 50 degrees, we took a long walk from Cambridgeside Galleria to Harvard Square. (Not as long on paper for a direct route, but we got a little lost. Oops.) The walk earned me 6 WW Activity Points.
On Sunday was the Cambridge 5K Craicfest. I had a great time & earned 5 WW Activity Points for the run. I didn’t set a PR (the wind and cold were brutal) but I still had fun.
This race felt like my circles of friends and family were colliding (and that’s good)! My brother ran with me. I ran on Dani from Weight Off My Shoulders team Slumbrew. I also saw my friend Heather (my mentor when I worked for Weight Watchers), and my friend/coach Jess L. ran too (then ran to Davis Square to get in another 5K race!).
I was hoping to finish in under 40 minutes, but I finished in 43. I’m looking ahead to improving my time for my April 5k(s).
Here’s some photos from Cambridge 5K Craicfest:
My brother and me.
Notice our different race strategies… I crazy layer….he runs in shorts & a tee shirt…..and he kicks butt and crushes the race in under 30 minutes. (I’m jealous!)
And my brother made me tear up when he replied to the comment above on Facebook saying, “Remember this post when you’re crushing 10k’s and I’m struggling to keep up” I’m so psyched my brother came down from Lowell to run the race. It was great to see him! (I’m the older one.)
Me & Dani – meeting her for the first time in “real life” but I’m a long time fan of her blog
