Oooohhhhh….getting closer! Now the marathon is less than a week away! I really never thought this day would come. Yeeeeeps! I think I’ve got everything I need, now I just need to pack it in my suitcase. I’m determined to only bring one there, but I’ll pack an empty one for all my books I’m bringing back. As usual.

Ran 8 miles on Saturday. Weather was gorgeous, just a beautiful day for a run. The park was full of family reunions, picnics, etc, so every quarter mile or so, I’d pass a big group of people barbecuing, and the smell would be torturously good. Then a while later…a crawfish boil. Then another barbecue. Yummmmy.

Anyway, even though it was a relatively short run, it was my long run for the week, so I practiced the walking 2 minutes every mile, and I felt great at the end. I think it’s really going to work well for me. Woo hoo!
