  1. ahh my group of friends and I are a mess. Sorry we didn’t get to meet up and sorry we didn’t get to run together. I think i would have definitely been able to keep up with you if i wasn’t all the way in the back. ah, stress. hope to see you soon girl! XO

  2. Congrats!! You’re so motivating. I’m hoping to to the Tufts 10K in Boston in October — I’ve only done 5K races so far but I think I can do it, reading your running posts are always so motivating — I just need some to rub off on me :)

  3. Congrats! :) Good job.

  4. Congrats girl! That is awesome that you finished and paced yourself (given the pain!!). I love that you have such a big/fun running group. And a fantastic brunch afterwards :) FROYO!!!!!! Hope you have a wonderful week.

  5. way to go! i’m so glad you were able to run in spite of knee pain. i hope that one day i can do the same (maybe not a race, but just running without pain would be nice :)) your RhodeyGirlTests shirt is ADORABLE!

  6. Great job! Looks like such a fun day! I love the idea of poached eggs on crabcakes!

  7. Awesome recap! Way to power through an injury :) Hope it’s feeling OK now. I’m still on the fence about Broad Street, but this post made me excited either way!

  8. This recap was REALLY motivational for me! It was nice to hear how you powered through the pain but made adjustments midrace to help get you to where you needed to be.

    Great Job!

    I’m eager to hear more about your speed workouts as you work for a faster pace!

  9. You were the star of the weekend!!!!! Great training run and now rest your knee so you can be in tip top shape for Broad St!

    Funny how I have no injuries from yesterday’s run, but my toe is now killing me from stubbing it on the bed this morning….OWW.

  10. Ok, as someone who is currently in physical therapy to recover from IT band syndrome, and hasn’t been able to run since January 31 (with a few exceptions sporadically in Feb and March to test my leg, but never more than 2 miles without pain) take 2 weeks off pronto! I made the huge mistake of running through the pain, and now I’m missing Broad Street, have constant pain in my hip, and am in pt until at least May. It sucks!

      @Kelly, Thank you for your comment. What are they making you do in PT? I’d love some advice. I am going to take a good 10 days off from running, but not from the other stuff. Unfortunately, it keeps going away and coming back, but if I stretch every single day it doesn’t come back. I think I maybe need to focus on stretching my IT band more and strengthening my legs even more? Is that what they are having you do?

  11. Congrats on your run!

    By the way I made your whole wheat pizza dough this weekend. Delicious!

  12. So many congratulations, girl! I’m gearing up for my first 5K in May and, while I know the distance is short, it’s still very scary for me! Reading recaps like this are so motivational to me! So, not only are congrats in order, but also a big THANK YOU!

  13. Great run – you should be so proud of yourself.

    Looks like you had a great run – and great meal with Anne!

    Hope your knee feels better – don’t push it too hard.

  14. Congratulations to you, PB and your entire running group! I hope you’re not too sore today. Roll it out on the foam roller! Congrats again.

  15. Great run! And congrats to PB, too! I think the best part of a destination run besides running is enjoying the city, which you seemed to do.

  16. Way to go girl! This was a great recap. Did you figure out how to work the flip cam?

  17. Congrats to you both! Awesome job! :)
