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!
