Saturday Stats and Happy Birthday

As my friend Caroline would say, I'm going insane in the membrane.

Seriously ya'll, I ran how many days ago and didn't even post about it?? I will try not to complain about the business that is my life right now, because I know it's a busy time for everyone. But next time you're driving around going crazy getting all your errands done, imagine doing all of that on a bike. (do you feel thankful now?? you're welcome.)  haha, so kidding.

I'm trying not to get caught up in the chaos of life right now and freak out and cry because for the love how is it all going to get done?! Because, most of the things that are busy in my life are good things. I don't want to just 'get through it,' and not enjoy the actual moment. So I'm trying to have a good perspective and remember to calm down and be more laid back. Which comes so naturally to me. ha

Besides, I'm sure if I tried hard enough I could find a pharmacy that carries percocet or vicatin over the counter.


Kind of....


Last Saturday was my long run. It ended up being about 11.2 miles. There was a lot less pain this week than the 9 miler last week. I tried something new this time. I had GU before the run and during. I've never tried using it before running. I couldn't tell a huge difference energy wise or anything, but it didn't hurt me so I'm likely to try it again.

I started exactly at 7am, and finished with less than a 12 min/mile pace. I will take it!!! 

Honestly, the run and all of the recent days are kind of blur, so I can't really remember much about it. Let's just say it went great........

It's taper week, but again, busy so haven't noticed. But i'm also thankful, because I couldn't imagine finding time for anything more than 3 miles this week.

Saturday is the big day.

I'm going to run 13.1 miles.

Go me!!!!!!

Don't worry, you will get the play by play. It may not be immediate because I have every minute of my life planned after the run, but I'll try to find time to post about it.

Also, today is someones birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday Ethan!!

Ethan is turning 3 today!!!! Sadly, he has mono, so they're not doing anything too big.  I'm sad we're not there to celebrate, but I was overseas when Grant turned 3 too, so I guess it's good that i'm not playing favorites. ha
