1000 Visitors!!

First, a shout out to my 1000th visitor! From Nashville, using a Mac!! HOLLA! Thanks for visiting!!
Also, someone came to my blog whilst searching for Dr. Travis Stork's office phone number! [gasp!] How psycho is that?? PS: he works in a HOSPITAL in the ER - they don't have office phones in the ER. Jeez. They were from Idaho. Isn't that interesting...

Anyway, I did run 4m last night. It was ok. I really feel like I should be gliding on these shorter jaunts, so maybe I am a bit dehydrated. I did drink a LOT of coffee yesterday morning - I do love it so. And I really didn't hit the H2O at all. So, today, in preparation for my 5:45 run, I will be consuming NO coffee and NO caffeinated pop, but I will be consuming 2 liters of water. We'll see how this works. However, this development (not enjoying the shorter runs like I used to) is not getting me excited about this weekend.

I am totally freaking out about Saturday's 16 mile run. AND, one of my favorite runners and blogsters just dropped down to the half - [pouring some water out of my water bottle and on to the floor] this is for my homie, Mollybloom! Keep it real, girl! ARGH! SIXTEEN FREAKIN' MILES. Hmm. Isn't that interesting... After 14 miles I really thought it was the end of the world. I don't know, I don't know...Any advice or encouragement??


  • Since you've done 14 before 16 won't feel that bad. Each long run will be tough but you just need to find your happy place and muddle through. Think of how you'll treat yourself later, or how rewarding it will feel to cross the finish line. 16 isn't the end of the world!
