1 day...

With that abysmal Hokie performance behind me, I'm ready to run! I was itching so bad yesterday to go faster during my 50 minute run. But Karen had the proverbial reins on me, so I stayed cool. One more easy run today and I'll be all set.

Logan has his race tonight. A 1 mile run. He's so excited about it and his "training". I'll be sure to post pictures.

Oh, and Nikki is well on the mend. She's now feeling really good about her race! I can't wait to see how well she does. I'm so proud of her.

2 days...

Poor Nikki has strep throat. She got some meds tonight, so hopefully she'll be on the mend before her start.

I'm getting itchy and want to run, but I'm listening to Coach K and following the taper plan. I've got two short runs tomorrow and Friday, so I'll be good and loose come Saturday morning. I just can't get froggy and hit either of these runs hard or fast. For those that have run with me lately, that'll be hard to do.

3 days...

Perfect. I'm racing and the weather is looking worse. Now we are looking at 40% chance of showers. With winds at 11mph. Temps seem to be good, in the low 60's.

Again, I apologize to anyone else racing. It's my luck this year that the majority of my races have been in the rain.

Oh well. Just like Placid, I'll deal with it.

4 days...

Had my last track workout for a few weeks tonight. Kinda bittersweet. Went really well. Just really good pace work. I also got my last training plan until next year from Coach K. Very easy light week. I know that I'm gonna want to do more, but I must listen to Coach K. I'm actually really excited about the marathon and the weather is looking really good.

Stay tuned...

This post is coming to you from Lane Stadium as our Hokies have just beaten Maryland, 23-13! Since we got married while the Hokies were playing, it was only fitting that we be in Blacksburg for our 9 year anniversary.
