Rest Day and a New Running Blog

by - Tuesday, April 05, 2011

I took yesterday as a rest day after my 10 mile race on Sunday, and instead of heading to the gym for some light cross training like I had originally planned, I laid out in my backyard and soaked up the sun.

It hit 85 degrees yesterday in D.C., warm enough to set a new record high temperature for the season, and perfect weather to head outside and dive into my new Runner's World magazine.

It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

I spent the morning buried in code designing and setting up a running blog for my friend Chris (you might remember him from yesterday's race recap). The Cherry Blossom 10 Miler was his first race, and he wrote one hell of a recap. If you've got a minute today, go check it out. I think it perfectly captures every emotion that a first time racer goes through.

Plus the blog looks pretty awesome. (Although, I'm probably biased because I did a lot of the work on it.) Chris is a big Terps fan, and I love that we were able to play up the Maryland red and black in the blog design.

OK, enough nerd talk for one day. Go head over to Chris' blog and congratulate him on a great race!
