Pre Race Rundown

So, we went to see Spirit of the Marathon Thursday night and it was pretty amazing. If any of you guys missed this one-day showing, I think they have added another date in February. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a little bit of inspiration. It definitely helped me get into the mood for tomorrow.

This week has been good. I only ran twice, but they were two solid runs. While I was exhausted both times, once again, no leg pain which is pretty awesome. I told my PT on Monday of my progress and she was so excited for me that I was going to be able to run tomorrow. Yeah, sucking it up and paying the dough to switch back to her was the best decision I have made in a long time. I have no doubt that if I had stayed with Mr. 70's Velvet Sweat Suit, I would not be running tomorrow.

So today we went to the expo and picked up our swag.

Other than the $15 parking, the expo was pretty good. Although I live in Miami, so a $15 parking fee shouldn't phase me, but somehow it still does.

After the expo we headed home and just chilled on the couch switching back from "Best Week Ever and The Real Housewives of Orange County. I love Saturday afternoon T.V. Later, we headed down to the Footworks pasta party that was held at the Knights of Columbus Club in the Gables for some pasta and cake. The cake was made by our friend Ralph's wife and was amazing. She duplicated the medal from last year perfectly!

So now I think I'm going to take a warm bath, do some light stretching and make sure I have everything ready for the morning. The weather is calling for rain showers from 6am-11am now, which scares me after last years monsoon that came at the beginning of the race. You never know what kind of weather you are going to get down here in South Florida. Well, at least I know we wont get snow.

Wish me luck (and dry weather)!!!

Awwww your post made me smile =) I also had the impression to meet an old friend! I'm glad we had the chance to meet and talk for a while. Too bad we couldn't go for food or drinks!! I had pretty bad blisters and could barely walk on Sunday and Monday!! hahaha I think I pushed a little hard =) I hope we get to meet again, let me know if you're ever in my neck of the woods!
