Just what I needed!!!

Now I’m re-inspired, re-energized, and re-dedicated! Only 54 more days! This is exactly what I needed after yesterday’s run. My friend, fellow marathon runner and gal-pal extraordinaire, Judy, sent me a couple of articles about our race.

I will be running with 14,849 other beautiful, strong and extraordinary women on October 23.

We will continue the tradition of excellence from last year.

And if that doesn’t do it for me on race day…well, there’s always the hotel.

New mileage achievement = great pain

My entire body hurts. My calves, my quads, my low back, my shoulders and my arms. Sure, I could’ve taken an ice bath and I probably wouldn’t hurt as much, but sitting in a tub of freezing water for 20 minutes didn’t appeal to me yesterday. I’ve done it before, and it is pure torture. So, I’m suffering today.

I got my kids back from my grandparents (babysitting for my early am run), went to my friend’s house, had four enchiladas, some chips and homemade guacamole, a glass of wine, three beers, and put some pictures on some pages (aka scrapbooking) for a couple of hours, then went home.

I fell asleep at 7:30 pm. I vaguely remember my kids trying to wake me up to come put them in bed, but I told them they were old enough to find their own beds. (I promise, I’m a good mom! This just wasn’t one of my better moments.) I couldn’t even open my eyes! I was totally drained. That hasn’t happened to me in a long, long time. I feel better, energy-wise today. Colorado Volume II due tomorrow.
