Lots of things that I’m excited for!!!
We are almost packed for our cruise. I can’t help it… i’m OCD, I plan, plan, plan. lol. The only thing left to pack is my running clothes and socks and undies. seriously. and Diz is almost there too. I keep ‘repacking’ for him though. I can hear myself now, “Babe, I don’t know where your 7 black shirts went. I know they were packed! hmm… why don’t you wear the cute yellow shirt (or insert some other non-black/bright color) instead?”
I ran 11 miles today on the treadmill. Alternated every other mile from an 8:57 pace to 8:19 (my hopeful marathon pace) and kicked things up a bit for the last mile. I did surprisingly well, didn’t feel dead. Well until that last mile. LOL. Sprinting always wears me out! total time was 1:34:30 for an average 8:32 min pace. I’m pretty stoked.
and also SUPER excited to meet Janae from Hungry Runner Girl. She’s hosting a blogger meet up at Farr’s fresh today. This girl is a FAN-TASTIC runner. She’s run 3 marathons, qualified for Boston all 3 times and is now hoping to run a sub 3:00 marathon at Boston. She’s a lean, mean (not really mean) running machine. She is so inspiring, and a big reason of why I’m even thinking about wanting to qualify for Boston. So I’m super stoked to meet her and a bunch of other runners/bloggers. plus… Farr’s fresh is the bomb… do-it-yourself style frozen yogurt, ice cream and custard and any (ANY) toppings you want… woot!
also celebrating Gpa Mercer’s 91st birthday tonight (he’s Diz’s mom’s dad). Super sweet and has recently had some health problems so well be celebrating at his new nursing rehab facility. kind of a bummer, but hoping he recovers quickly and will be able to go home soon.
