Shelly over at It’s Just One Foot in Front of the Other tagged me with a request for a view from my life.
This is the view out my kitchen window. It’s our side patio where we spend many an evening hanging out with friends sharing some good beers.
This is the view out my front door. Almost every run I take starts down one of the streets shown. You’d never know I’m a very short run away from the nation’s capital.
Taper madness continues unabated here. The weather today is PERFECT for running a marathon. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to warm up considerably by Sunday. Boo. I’m doing my best not to gain weight during taper, but the decreased miles combined with the “nervous eating” of every carb I can get my hands on is likely to add up at some point. Thank you for all of your comments about Jones. He seems to be feeling better. He definitely slept better last night. Sadly, Shoo decided that today was a good day to wake up at 6:30am. I’m trying hard not to stress about any speed goals. I keep repeating mantra “I know I can finish, I know I can finish” in an attempt to relax. So far, my legs feel good and I have no “mystery” symptoms to worry about. I’m keeping busy with some other deadlines and that is helping.
Repeat after me “I know I can finish”.
