Getting Close

The marathon is so close now!  No more long runs, just shorter easy runs.  This training did definitely not go as I planned, but you know what, my life was more exciting then I planned!  I will be crossing that dang finish line on November 3rd!  It may not look pretty, but I will be there.  I have big plans after this is done as far as exercise.  A whole new routine using yoga and walking.  Minimal impact, but strength training.

I have all my bib info and times and I'm going to put that up next week, that's right it is all confirmed baby!

As far as married life, it's good, it's easy right now.  I am not sure why, but the finality of it feels so comforting and makes you want to work harder.  I know now more than ever before that I support gay marriage because I was with B for over 7 years when we got married and it does feel different, in such a wonderful way.  Everyone should feel that!

I have also been having fun outside (on days that I wasn't totally exhausted from long runs).

I cheered on my old College

I celebrated a special boys 2nd birthday

I got some important snuggle time with my ole hound dog

This weekend, short run tonight, hike tomorrow and 8-9 miler tomorrow (easy breezy)!  Oh, I almost forgot, it's pretty cold out right now!  There is that whole thing.  I have run in shorts and a quick dry t shirt for all of my runs.  Last weekend I ran a half marathon (taper down) at a 9 1/2 minute mile pace and wore pants.  It was cold, but you know what the pants where too much!  I am going to try out my pants that I have that end right below the knee this weekend.  I'm hoping that is the perfect balance for this weather.  

"The whole point of the week is the weekend"  :)
