Three Things Thursday

1.  I am so excited for Big Sur!  I can’t believe that I will be in California next Friday!  WooHoo!  I am also excited because I hit my fundraising goal yesterday for TNT too.  I am very lucky to have such supportive friends and family.  Now I can just focus on the taper, then the run, and then VACATION.  I feel like my brain is already there.  Not necessarily a good thing.  The next week will be busy-I have to be ready for a wedding the following weekend (May 7th) when I get back.  I will literally land in Atlanta Thursday afternoon, go home and re-pack and leave Thursday evening to head back to Alabama.  Very crazy, fun 2 weeks ahead of me.  Which obviously means this weekend will be very low key.

2.  I can have sweets on Sunday.  I.  Can’t.  Wait.  I have cookies and cake in the freezer.  Yes, I am dead serious.  I have decided I am going to limit my sweets after Lent is over.  I am officially in my skinny jeans again but still feel like there is room for improvement and I think it would be a healthy option to not eat dessert 3 times a day.  Here’s to hoping I have enough will power to do it. :)

3.  I feel like Boston deserves another mention (since my post went out before the race began) and I still can’t believe how fast some of these people can run.  Miles and miles under 5 minutes a mile?  WOWZA.  I also can’t believe because the course is point-to-point and has “wind issues” that it can’t technically be a record.  It is in my book.  Regardless, Boston definitely has me inspired and I am looking forward to spending some time focusing on myself, my form, my speed, etc. after Big Sur is over.  I will be honest, I do wish I was born with a talent like that.  I wonder how of much of speed is genetics/born-with-it talent or practice and determination?  I will hopefully soon find out!!

And thanks for your comments on my RNR race bling!  I’m definitely excited.  What’s your favorite bling so far?  I like to add cool medals to my race list!!

  • I think if I would run only 1 mile, I could not run a 5min.mile. Isn't that crazy? :) Those runners are truly amazing and I don't understand why it's not a world record. The course is so much tougher! Maybe one day we make it to Boston :)
