Down.... I already booked my hotel for the race (because I’m a crazy person) and it was EXPENSIVE! The 4 nights that I’m staying currently (might stay more) were supposed to cost $1600, but instead I used nearly all of my hotel points and got it for free. Let’s be honest though, they could have wanted $500/night and I still would have paid it. Damn you unicorn!
|No, no... TapeR, not taper her|
Down.... I’ve sort of been in taper for the last month or so. I’m only running 3/4 of the miles I should be (55-60ish miles per week +/-) when I’d really like to be cracking 80. This either means that I’ll be very well rested come race day or I’ll shit my pants at mile 21. Either way? GREAT blog posts.
Up!!! After getting promoted and taking on a slightly different role, I’m finally starting to find my footing. It is a bit more work than I was doing before (read: I really didn’t get rid of any responsibilities), but I really like the work that I do and feel that I am recognized for it. That hasn’t eased the 11-12 hour days much, but I’m getting by.
Down..... I’m sorting through a few family issues as of late. One of those “fork in the road” type deals. It’s been a bit of a struggle as I try to find my place and sort through issues both mental and logistical. During this time I’ve come to know two things: My son has to live on a combination of horse steroids and sugar (he is BUSY), and just like in running, you don’t know how strong you are until you’re pushed to what you thought your limits were.
|Shopping makes me sleepy too|
Up!!! It made me sad that I took an entire week off from blogging and didn’t get another funny foto Friday up. So, here is a bonus Funny Foto MONDAY! Enjoy!
