It's hard to believe that race day is so near. We're going to pick up race packets tonight and tomorrow is sight-seeing. I'm anxious to see how I do and hope that my training has paid off. I know that this will be a good experience altogether and will help me learn how to better prepare for the next race. So for now, it's rest and fuel and just pray that everything goes well on Sunday.

Hard to believe the race is in 14 days. Yesterday I had to split up my eight mile run into 4 in the morning and 4 in the evening, but they both went pretty well, even after taking Sevrine hiking. Today is a much needed rest day with 3 miles in the morning. My mid week run will be 7 miles and 9 on Saturday. I won't run a full 13 until race day, but I don't plan on taking much of a break from training before I start gettting ready for the next one. I plan on doing a full marathon in 2012, so I want to start logging miles for that so I feel confident. The trick is staying healthy and not hurting myself.
