Yay Boston and Soul Cycle

The Boston Marathon had so much meaning this year. It was great to see all the support and have the race come back this year stronger than ever.  Congrats to all the amazing runners yesterday!

I was so thrilled to hear that Meb had won!  He is such an amazing runner and person; I always watch for him in the NYC Marathon, but this year it was even more exciting to see him win Boston.  I’ll always remember that while I was running the NYC marathon in 2009,  it was announced that an American had won and it was Meb!  I’ve been following his career ever since.

Frank and I even got to meet him at an NYRR gala a few years ago!

In other exciting news, I finally tried Soul Cycle.  Verdict: loved it! It reminded me of the first spinning classes I ever took in college, just pure addiction.  It actually had a lot less “soul” than I expected. The workout was very high energy, most of the class was spent out of the seat and there was only one climb in the entire class.  They only thing I wish they had was some kind of monitor to measure RMPs or torque.  That said I’ll definitely be back–most likely after I get my next paycheck. $36 a class–ouch!

  1. As an avid runner I have to agree with you (though I’ve never had the privilege to meet him), that Meb Keflezighi is an awesome runner and is very inspiring as well. Also, Soul Cycle I’ve never heard of but I checked out the website and it really looks interesting. I will have to look at this more to determine if it’s right for me. But thank you for your post, I enjoyed reading it!

  2. Meb’s whole story is inspiring. Congrats to him!

    Regarding Soul Cycle, I have drank the Soul koolaide too. I just recently tried Swerve (and wrote about it on my blog) and that’s another one I love. It doesn’t have the “soul” of SC, but it’s hard core and pushes you because you work as a team.
