This past weekend I got to cheer V on in an 8k race that was done in conjunction with the Amsterdam marathon. V did awesome- and further convinced me that I need to train to have any hope of keeping up with him- and it was really fun to root him on. I also got to watch the marathon kick off and finish in the Olympic stadium of Amsterdam.
Watching V have a great time doing the race, and seeing all of those amazing people taking on the marathon, inspired me and got me thinking about my next race. I did a half-marathon a year ago (a year! time is flying!), and now that grad school madness is over, I'm ready for more. So in order to keep me honest, I am announcing it here that I will do another race next year. Who's in?

We spent the rest of the brilliant Sunday cruising around the city on our bikes, taking in the delightful weather. Our destination was this gem of a restaurant:
Along with getting back into running, its time to add swimming back into the mix. The pool is only 5 minutes away, and is indoors, so no excuses. Like my running goal, I'm putting this out there so you can help keep me honest. We all need our motivation :)
Until next time, be well!
