Week One of my Chicago Marathon training is well underway. So far I've run 24 miles over 4 days and I'm already exhausted. I think I'll take today off from running as I have so much to do to get ready for our busy Milestones Jewelry weekend. We have 2 events tonight(Friday). Christine is working the "Adventure Island Picnic run" in Tampa and I'm working the "Taphouse 5K" in Oldsmar. (I think I got the better gig, the winners get a beer mug shaped like a boot that they wear around their neck and refill with beer until it's all gone). Not a bad gig for a Friday night. And then tomorrow we have package pickup expo for the Dunedin Triathlon and the Sunday morning we'll be working the Dunedin Tri. Whew, I'm tired already.
I normally do my long run for the week on Sunday morning but we have to get up at 4:00 am to leave for the Triathlon. So I think I'll get up tomorrow morning and do my 12 mile long run then. I'll still be short on my miles for the week. Dang!!
Well all is going well, doing a lot of packaging for my move to North Carolina, but frankly I can't wait to get out of this heat. It's hot up there too right now but the humidity is around 45% not 105% like here :-). Well I guess I'll get it all done somehow.
Gotta run,
Take care! My quote for today I saw on a church billboard while I was running. "ASPIRE TO INSPIRE BEFORE YOU EXPIRE"
