Tuesday Tidbits

  • I am absolutely exhausted lately, but for the first time in a long time it’s because my days are chock-full of doing the things I love.  These days I’m losing sleep because I’m up late at night watching the baseball playoffs, not because I’m tossing and turning with worry all night long.  I wouldn’t change a thing!  I’ll drink some coffee and go on with my day. 
  • I bought my first Christmas present on Sunday.  Ready or not, here it comes!
  • A few months ago, the Runner’s World Smart Coach told me I should be able to run a 4:19 marathon.  I sincerely questioned his intelligence.  This weekend I punched my new 5K PR time into the McMillan pace calculator.  He says I should be able to run a 2:04 HM in St. Louis this weekend and … a 4:20 full.  So either they’re BOTH smoking crack, or I’m sorely underestimating myself.  I’m pretty sure it’s the crack thing.
  • I’m getting pretty pumped about RnR St. Louis this weekend!

  1. I hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend!

    And. Don't underestimate McMillan. I plugged my 5k PR in there and he told me I could run a 1:59 and change half. I snorted at him AND THEN I WENT OUT THERE AND DID THAT SHIT. You are underestimating yourself. 🙂

    Now the marathon? That's a whole nother story…
