4 weeks to go

4 weeks until the marathon! That's not a lot of time left, and I have a feeling the next few weeks will fly by.

I ran 14.5 miles this morning at a pretty fast pace. Having done almost 18 last week, this seemed to fly by, which was why I pushed myself to go faster today.

As I was heading out this morning, I passed by the Shrine guard who is always so nice and asks me to run one of my miles for him. He was still there when I came back, and we had a nice chat. I finally found out his name: it's Peter. He's such a sweet man, and I feel like he's always there to welcome me back from my run.

Following the run, Seth and Mary joined me at American University to watch Holy Cross play American University. Unfortunately, HC lost. But I had a great time, and enjoyed catching up with some of my classmates and seeing the purple proudly donned. We picked Wes up after, and then drove out to Annapolis for the evening (so much fun).

Despite the HC loss, it turned out to be a good day.

  1. Hey friend - I just caught up on the past few entries and I'm getting excited for you as the race gets closer. I wish I could be there to cheer you on but surprise surprise I have to work that weekend. Make no mistake, I'll be ignoring the children and cheering you on from Central New York!
