1. I showered this morning before the kids woke up. I’m not running today. It’s my one total rest day before National as I’ll run a couple of easy miles to loosen things up tomorrow. I’m kind of afraid my body will go into shock.
2. I bought a pair of the Merrell Pace Gloves yestereday. They feel a lot like my Vibrams, but my toes are FREE!!! I want to take them out for a spin, but I’m not running today (see above). So, if you see an
old lady cute girl running down the street in cute shoes and jeans, honk and yell pretend you don’t see me.
3. Yesterday one of my clients offered to enter me into the lottery for the NY City marathon so that I could pace her through the marathon if we both got in. I thought about it for a few minutes but realized a few things: 1) I have zero desire to run NYC. I have enough big, logistically challenging races here, thankyouverymuch, 2) I don’t feel like I’m a strong enough runner to pace someone for a full marathon. Half marathon, yes, but Full? Nope, and 3) If I run another marathon, I’ll be aiming to beat 4:30. I have no desire to run another marathon just to finish. (4. Darn it, now that a marathon seed has been planted…)
