I'm only 12 days from the marathon. Wow...
I got the weekend plans finalized for the family and friends we are hosting that include a clutch free happy hour on Sunday night to celebrate (thank goodness the Bears are having a bye week or they wouldn't have done it)! I'm working on some out of town goodie bags... seriously this is excellent practice for the wedding. Mainly, I am just looking forward to drinking ice cold beer again.
Last night we went to a fun run sponsored by our local running store and they had an awesome sampling of all the foods from the various neighborhoods, called Taste of the Marathon. We had a really nice time and ate some really good food, especially some cheese tamales with some very hot salsa. The run was nice because I didn't feel any pressure to run a certain amout of mileage. It will be so nice to just run for fun again! Tonight I have a marathon clinic at REI and I'm hoping to learn some good stuff to help me during the race. We have a 5K on Sunday morning so it's shaping up to be a really busy week and I know that next week is just going to fly by. Before I know it, I'll be lacing up my shoes early morning on the 11th and getting ready to fight the mental battle that will be 26.2 miles!
