The first race of this season was a half marathon I ran with Julie. Poor girl woke up with me right in her face 30 minutes early, "HI hihihihi!!! Are you excited? I'M EXCITED! Are you ready? I'M READY!"
And then I jumped up and down and ran all around the house, while Julie cooly tied her shoes, and Kersti groggily put on a sweater to come take our picture and see us off.
Well, I just finished my final run of this training season last night. Getting up at 3 am tonight to run a marathon!
Wish I could say last night was THE BEST run and I am SO READY.
It was pouring rain, my phone was in a sandwich bag sliding uncomforably all around my bra, aaaaand I only went 3 miles before I was completely pooped. That's a close number to 26, relatively. It's fine.
So I came home and grabbed some tacos with Julie. Finished my endless cans of beets - gotta pump that Nitric Oxide. Then The Man House came over to watch a movie. I drugged myself with sleeping pills and was out solid by 8:30. Except at 10 when Cade threw a pillow at me because the movie ended, and he wanted to go get dessert. No sir. Fell face first into my bed and stayed out like a rock until dawn.
But I am RESTED today. About to conduct a 4 hour meeting. Holy shiza. Grab my race packet. Carb load for din din. And then, GAME TIME!
Upward and onward,
