Have you told me a (dirty) joke to enter my playlist/music giveaway? I love reading the ones that people have told me already. Remember: no joke = no entry. I want to laugh!
I’m finishing up my work week right now and walked into my office and saw this…well it was in an envelope but this is what I opened up to see
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.And note that one of my co-workers, whom I LOVE, told me to remember to tie my shoes. Now that’s love. I wasn’t originally going to give my number to my work but I think I will once I leave. Then they can track me on the big screen during clinic on Monday.
No needless to say I’m slowly starting to get excited. I won’t be fully excited until I get to the starting line but I’m starting to have the competitor in me come out, which is odd given how un-motivated I’ve been all training cycle. The more and more people ask me about it and wish me good luck the more and more I want to beast it and goals are starting to formulate in my brain.
But I’m still not really butterfly-y. I know that I’ll get more excited as I get to meet blogger / RW peeps this weekend. And last night, I did meet a med school kid who is running the Providence marathon and it was AWESOME to have someone in my real life to talk to! And possibly run with him and train for races this summer with. So I’m starting for formulate big goals for Monday. Eeeeep.
Now I just need to get through the next few days.
Wednesday, like I mentioned in my last post, was rainy and gross and the run sucked. Not demoralizing but just suckage. And it left me with a nice black toe on my middle toe of my left foot. I mean, I’ve done *howmany* 20+ runs and a little taper run causes this?! WTF?
Luckily I cut the nail down as far as I could, per recommendation of a doctor here, and my run yesterday drained it. No pain anymore, nor was the run on Thursday painful due to it. I guess the pressure was relieved when the blood was removed. So, while I was worried about it earlier this week, now I’m not. YAY.
Not much else to blog about. Lame post. But it’s taper time. I never really get taper madness in the way others do. I still feel calm and no more obsessive about things than normal. The weather predicted for Monday is supposed to be nice. Same for today so I’ll likely get out for a run after work. And then I’ll spend the weekend hanging out and hopefully meeting a bunch of you (safe traveling to everyone!). I’m spending all day in Boston tomorrow which will be a blast.
Good weekend planned? Yes. Good Monday planned? Probably. At the very least I don’ t have to be back work until Wednesday.
