Marathon Tomorrow!!

I run the Bob Potts Marathon tomorrow!! Woo hoo!  I’ve been training for this marathon for the past 18 weeks and tomorrow is finally the big day!  The race is an out and back on a trail trail and finishes at a college stadium.  I really hope everything goes well and my friend Amy and I finish together!! It is supposed to be HOT HOT HOT, so I am trying to get my race day outfit together.  I ordered this tank top a few weeks ago for the race…

Brooks Glycerin tank – I already have this one in a black and white print but I wanted to order it in a bigger size so it was a bit longer.  I ran in it last weekend and really liked it.  I love that it has a zipper pocket in the back.

Some things I’m loving this week:

CARBS

shrimp risotto

Mini bagels!

(I’m probably carbing up a bit much, but I like the excuse) I’ve been loving the white pasta a lot this week.

I’m loving my black sparkle TOMS and wore them almost every day to school this week. They are SO comfortable! When I first got them, they rubbed on the back of my heel a bit, so I wore socks with them in the winter.  I guess they just needed to stretch out a little, so they are perfect now and I really want a new summery lighter color.

Also loving the low mileage from this past week.  I ran 3.5 and 2.5 this week and loved taking it easy on the treadmill.  I really wanted to do some Yoga this week, but it always makes me sore when I’m not used to it so I avoided it.  I hope my legs feel fresh tomorrow!

Loving the great sleep I’ve been having over the past two weeks.  After my body calmed down after the 20 miler, I started sleeping again.  I was really having trouble staying asleep throughout the entire night when my mileage was higher, but it has been so much better the past two weeks.  I’m sure the marathon will upset my sleep patterns for the next few nights, but that’s okay.
