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!!
