What a weekend!
Jason and I kicked it off with a fun happy hour and dinner date night downtown. Saturday morning I headed down to the L.A. marathon expo with two of my running partners. Not the best expo I have ever been to (hardly any free samples?!). Afterward, we went to a nice lunch at a cute French bistro in downtown L.A.
Since last week was the first full week of marathon training, the first long run was on tap for Sunday morning. 14 miles was on the schedule....and I ended up running 26.2. Yes...I Saturday I found out that I was going to be running the L.A. marathon the next day! I had planned on doing part of the race becuase I was going to pace one of my teammates, but another teammate ended up getting an extra bib for me and told me I was running the whole thing!

Since there was not really any formal training done for the race, we treated it as a long training run, and just wanted to have fun. It ended up being a BLAST! We ran at an easy pace, danced to all the bands on the sidelines and just took in all the awesome sites.
Even with no training, an easy pace, some walking and bathroom stops, we still crossed the finish line in less than 4 hours. That's pretty good if you ask me!
How was your weekend?
