How did I get so lucky?? Seriously, the week rocks. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
1. I passed 1,200 miles for the year. This is neat because since I began running/logging miles in 2009, I’ve never broken 1,200/year. It’s also neat because as of 6/30 my YTD was 568 miles. Who knew training added crazy mileage?!
2. I booked a flight to Texas for the weekend of 1/11. Now all I gotta go is grow the balls to sign up for the Bandera 100k (A trail of rugged & brutal beauty where everything cuts, stings, or bites). OH MY!
3. I’ve been picked to join the coolest people ever at HOOD TO COAST 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think this has really sunk in yet. Seriously, how cool is this??
In non-awesome news my last set of 1600s last night has me nervous about hitting my 4:09 goal at Bass Pro. I don’t think my training paces are good enough. I’m really nervous…but I’ve got a couple of friends who are way better runners to pace/push me. And I’m VERY confident in a big PR (4:33:24) and a fantastic weekend with my girls at the very least.
A goal isn’t good if it doesn’t care me a little, right? Right.
Oh, and taper sucks!!
