Since I’m running in the GW Parkway Ten-Miler tomorrow morning, I decided to take advantage of an opportunity to walk eight miles with my friend Vel this morning.  It is gorgeous out today!  Cool and breezy, but gorgeous!


W&OD Trail

As soon as we started walking we met one of our Cruisers, Amanda, coming off the trail from her run with some other ladies.   I hope I’m not jumping to conclusions here, but I think she’s two-timing on us!  🙂   Amanda is also part of a local Moms on the Go group, and today they were “Running for Boston.”


Moms on the Go

Moms on the Go is a running group made up of local moms who began running together in the fall of 2010. They started by training for a 5K, then a 10K, and then some went on to run half-marathons and marathons!  Amanda is one of the moms in the group that has since completed a half-marathon and is registered for this fall’s Marine Corps Marathon!

While Vel and I were walking, we met Bill and Joseph running toward us.  Bill ran ten miles, and Joseph ran 14.  Did I mention last Saturday that Joseph ran 17 miles?  That just makes my heart happy!


My two favorite Cruisers!

Yesterday I told you that I was making Chicken Parmesan for our Cruiser friend, Beth, and her husband Tom who were coming over for dinner.  We had a great time listening to their stories about Beth running in the Paris Marathon two weeks ago.  They wrote up a Paris Marathon recap that I’ll be posting next week.  I can’t wait for you to virtually run the race with her!

Back to the Chicken Parmesan…  I made a rookie blogging mistake!  I forgot to take a picture of my plate before scarfing my food down!  Fortunately, I took a picture of the Chicken Parm in the casserole dish before serving it.

Good news!!!!  We have leftovers for tonight’s pre-race dinner!


Beth and Tom brought an apple, peach, and almond pie from Pie Gourmet.  It was delicious!


Looks like they have national delivery available, so you’re in luck!  🙂


  • Questions:
  • Did you participate in a “Run for Boston” run today?
  • Do any of my mom readers run with their local “Moms on the Go” group?
  • Will you “Touch Your Heart” to honor Boston at the end of your next race?
