Happy Friday! Has this week felt insanely long to anybody else? I could not be happier that it is the weekend if I tried! And I’m getting so pumped for the race tomorrow! I’ve run a handful of times this week, very easy, short miles and my legs feel good. I’m ready to give it my all tomorrow and charge up that mountain!
I accidentally published a non-finished version of this post yesterday afternoon again. Damn those dang “Publish” and “Save Draft” buttons so close together. I didn’t even notice it until Jamie commented! Ha! She got a nice little preview of things.
This morning I have a consultation with an oral surgeon to get my wisdom teeth removed. Womp womp. I’m nervous about what it’ll entail/recovery time, since I have another race in three weeks. Hopefully, since they’re already peeking through, they’ll be easy to remove, and I’ll be on my way.
Not too many links this week. The internet didn’t seem to be as great as last week. But, here are the articles I found interesting enough to pass along!
How to Cope With an Injury. We’ve all been there. We’ll all be there again. These are good things to keep in mind.
Why Goal Setting Is the Hardest Part of Running. Staring into the face of another marathon cycle, this time with school and work has me shaking in my running shoes a little bit.
I Pole Vaulted in High School. This was always a serious fear in the back of my head. So sad.
I’m actually a little disappointed Alex Trebek has no sense of humor. I want to high five this lady.
I liked this list. Especially number 3. Whenever someone asks me if J is a runner and I say no they always try to justify why it’s ok. It doesn’t need justification. He doesn’t like to run. I don’t like to work on cars. We love each other anyway.
I always end up eating french fries. Apparently, I should be eating fried chicken.
Have a happy weekend everyone! Good luck to all of you racing this weekend and happy long runs to those who are training!
