3 days (or at least 3 partial days) we got to hang out. :)
2 bloggers Marcia and I got to meet up with over the weekend: One at the oh so blah expo where we shared some laughs with the oh so fun Kathy.
The other was the lovely Terzah, who brought her twins to my son's cross country meet.

18ish times I told sea-leveler Marcia she was running at 6000'.
4,567 times Marcia and I complained to one another about how much fitness we've lost, unwanted weight gained, and paces that are just plain sad in
2 new names Marcia and I deemed ourselves: Thelma and Louise.
9 times we said, "These hills suck!" Impressive since there were only really 6. Okay, 5!
3 minute potty break Marcia had to take mid-race. And 3 minutes I, devoted friend, waited for her.
1 cranky foot (mine).
.25 last mile where we actually ran "fast" and felt our old selves revived.
1+1 pretty blah shirt and medal (which look eerily similar to the San Diego RnR shirt and medal!!).
1 monster-sized cupcake consumed after pizza. (And I wonder why I can't run well??). At least it wasn't 3 at once...like someone we know...
|This new mom apparently needs to get out more!|
8 gazillion tribillion golden aspen leaves we saw on Sunday.
11 miles to nearest gas station.
36 times Thelma may have said a swear word.
1 lake hike aborted in search of fuel.
2 sets of muscles not needed to push the car - we made it!
74 dollars spent on gas. That's a new PR!
1 new trail found to hike!!!
1 time Louise slipped and almost pulled a hamstring.
1 train spotted.
0 desserts consumed (at least, not immediately after lunch anyway).
1 Incredibly fun weekend!
My foot issue seems to be slightly better. I can turn my foot inwards and my ankle is no longer screaming, at least. I had a pretty decent run today....so I'll continue to keep doing my PT exercises and hope the progress continues then next week I'll head to PT one ore time before Chicago. I have succumbed to the fact I will be walking a vast majority of Chicago. It's not what I wanted, of course, but I'm at peace with this. There'll be other marathons. I think.
Until next time....
Run Strong, my friends!
