Weight I have lost

Getting Ready for the Big Day

Taper week has come to a close. I lost another pound! And I have a blister on my boob (damn HRM/sports bra!)

So we now have our directions printed out, laundry clean, Garmins charged and I have set my playlist for the Half Marathon (or Mini Marathon as the Kentucky Derby is calling it which I think sounds worse than Half Marathon).

V's Boyfriend will not be able to join us. He has been stuck in Moscow for a week and a half due to that volcano. And is expected to go on another job on Tuesday for a few months somewhere else, but V is meeting us in Louisville.

I ran 3 miles yesterday. I ran a mile at 5mph (12 min mile), 1 at 4.7 and 1 all over the place. Not the best but it was done. Today's 2 miler was 17+ min/mile due to running with Guinness. I don't know if it was the pollen, her being 10, or out of shape. She got .8 miles and then I dragged her the rest of the way. We walked a lot. When I got home, I poured a bottle of water on her face. She was perfectly content. D took Scuttlebutt on his run. SB lasted 1.5 miles. So not much better. We were going to run at the track, but there was a field day or something there, and I didn't run infront of a whole bunch of HS kids. Poor Guinness, she was so excited to see the track and then confused when we immediately left. She'll live.

Hopefully next time I post, I will be an official Half-Marathoner!
