Marathon Training: Week 17 *The FINAL WEEK*

4.29.2013


I'm sorry this post is a tease, but I couldn't not document the final week of marathon training. I have so many thoughts on the race itself I don't even know where to start with my recap, but I'll be working on it this week, so check back.

For now, I will tell you that tapering makes me lazy. It's sad when you don't want to go out on a 3-mile run because it sounds too long. Ha. I actually skipped a scheduled run on Thursday because I just didn't feel like it. How's that for marathon spirit? In my defense, it was cold and rainy outside.

But I did run on Sunday, and my dad and I both finished with no injures except my knees and my sunburn. (No chaffing, though! Moving Comfort bra, I love you.) I think my dad had chaffing issues, but I won't go into detail about that...

Here's a picture to tide you over until the recap post. (And... I just realized my eyes might be closed.)

Thank you so much for your emails and comments and tweets of encouragement! Sometimes I feel like no one's out there reading this thing, and although I would still write even if no one read it, I do enjoy the community of blogging. You all are wonderful.
