Immediately after work, we had some apartment business to attend to. One the way from one to the next, we always keep our eyes peeled for “For Rent” signs. During this process, we learned that there are plenty of places out there that are never posted on any online service. They keep it old-fashioned, they put up a sign.
We found one, we called it, and within the hour we were signing the lease. It happened to be in one of the two neighborhoods we wanted, and happened to be perfect for us right now. And we can move in early! So. Happy.
Easy as that! Stress: GONE. My focus is now solely on 26.2, as it should be!
It was time to make things official! Have the bib in hand, get my Tech Tee that probably won’t see much action, and browse the vendors for samples & sales.
He wanted in on the action, too.
Not as speedy as you, just yet, mannequin woman. Workin’ on it…
And working hard! As most of you know, this training cycle has been entirely different than the first. I know that I’m mentally and physically ready, and more importantly, I’m EXCITED!
By feel, I know this race will be the experience I want it to be. Because that’s my attitude and I’m more than happy to get out there tomorrow and run for hours.
I know these legs have put their work in and are ready to change this finish-line attitude:
By numbers (because the numbers don’t lie!):
Mid December – March 19 (for #1): 319.5
Mid July – October 15: 421.2
Yep, that put things into perspective.
These muscles are Ready to ROCK.
My initial goal with this one was simply to train smart(er) and enjoy the race, through and through. That picture above tells you everything you need to know the last 10K of that marathon. This time, I know it will be hard, but I know I put it much more work to make it “easier”.
GOAL: Sub 4:00. Simple, and according to my training, do-able!
A+ GOAL: Hit 3:50-55. If the legs can push it, I’ll go with it!
If you’re on the course, look for those sweet lululemon arm warmers, as my black Sony shirt isn’t exactly jumping out of the crowd. 😉
Catch ya after the Finish Line…..!
GOOD LUCK to my fellow runners/racers this weekend!!!
