I took a couple of vacation days last week so that I could relax. I guess going to Salem and Boston was "relaxing" (or at least for me it is!) Carrick's brother lives in Salem so got to see him and his family while also sightseeing. I enjoy the history of Salem so it's fun to walk around. We visited the Witch House and the Salem Wax Museum.

On Thursday I went into Boston with Nate. We went to the aquarium and to the Museum of Fine Arts. We like to go to the aquarium and see the animals. It's always fun and one of the first things we did together.

There's a new Goya exhibit that is open at the MFA that I was looking forward to seeing so we went there afterwards. It was really good. It was really large and well put together.

Between the half and walking to the train and back to Nate's apartment we logged about an extra 5 miles! I ran the Tufts Health Plan 10k for Women today to help gain a few extra miles for my last long run before the NYC Marathon. This was a wonderful race! I've always heard about this race, but never had a chance to do it until this year. It was well organized with plenty of activities for all. My knee was feeling better, but I didn't want to push my body after yesterday so I just did what I could. I kept to my intervals and just went with it. The course was part of the Run to Remember course so I was comfortable. The best part was crossing the finish line with Joan Benoit Samuelson at the end to congratulate all the finishers. (If you don't know who Joan is you should go here and check her out.) I finished in 1:09:40, a 2:06 PR! There may have been a tear or two at the end. I would do this run again and suggest it to anyone and everyone (even men!)

I usually spend one day a week reading all the running blogs I follow. I saw this post on Happy Fit Mama earlier today and thought it might be fun to fill this out too.
