Must be Go Time
Almost out of Gu . . . must be time to run a marathon!
Thanks for all your advice about my last big long run this weekend. I listened! I scrapped the 50 mile bike ride yesterday (trading it instead for an 8 mile ride into town with Sophie on the bike) and ran 20 this morning. And I am so glad I did. It was a great run, and a nice confidence builder for the marathon. I am very grateful to my awesome running partner Jim for running the 20 with me (even though he is not running a fall marathon) and to his wife for watching Sophie so we could run.
After the run, Sophie and I headed to my mom's for apple day. You know what makes for great post-run recovery? Warm apple crisp and vanilla ice cream. Yum.
