- My Zensah arm sleeves came in the mail on Tuesday... I wore them around for the rest of the evening and then decided to hold a dress rehearsal for Chicago. The Brunette proclaimed that if Chicago held a contest for best dressed, I would win. After that I proceeded to run in place in front of my bathroom mirror and practice my hard core runner faces and poses... I may not be fast but dang it all I'm going to look adorable running slow!!!
- Saturday is my final long run before Chicago: 22 Miles! In honor of this final long run I have decided to spend it with those that were there for the first 22 Miler... B.o.B. and the B.R.A.!!! I couldn't ask for a better way to end my training or a better group of people to share it with. With that being said, I will officially begin TAPER on Sunday. Yes for those of you keeping score I have decided to forgo the usual 3 week taper and have opted for a 2 week taper instead. After countless long runs with weak finishes and after consulting Coach EK, I decided this was the best approach for me to take to go to Chicago feeling confident and strong.
- B.o.B is coming to Chicago to cheer me on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Obviously I am bummed for her that MCM isn't going to happen but I also can't help but be ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY EXCITED that my boo is going to be there to watch me finish in Chicago!!! YAY!!!
Have a great weekend ya'll! Rock all those races and long runs! I can't wait to read all the recaps! Extra special shout out to Maddy who is running a 15k here in town... Good Luck girl, you've got this!!!
Catch ya'll on the flip side!!! 16 more days!!!
