Despite being crazy busy over the weekend I was able to get some sewing time in. I finally got around to taking in two sweaters that were super boxy. I used the Adventures in Dressmaking tutorial and it worked out great! Unfortunately I forgot to take before and after pictures, so you’re going to have to take my word for it. I also started working on my Minoru again and then during the Oscars I started piecing together the panels for my afghan. All in all, it was a productive day.
Today marked the official start of training for the Broad Street Run (BSR). The BSR is a 10-mile race that starts in North Philly and ends in the Navy Yard in South Philly. The race caps at 30,000 runners and this year it sold out in 5 hours! Thankfully Nick and I were able to pre-register the day before because our health insurance company sponsors the race. Here we are at the end of last year’s BSR. I was on the verge of delirium. I love how it looks like we are all walking. We were running, I promise!
Here we are doing our last high five of the race. We high five at each mile marker to congratulate ourselves. My favorite part of this picture is the couple all of the way on the left. People get very emotional after running for ten miles!
Once Daylight Savings hits we will be able to do most of our running outside, but until then we’ll be confined to the gym. Hopefully the weather will cooperate on Saturday so we can run our first long run outside. Otherwise I’ll be queuing up a couple of episodes of This American Life to keep me distracted on the treadmill!
