Half-Mary a'comin'

I haven't done anything since Monday. Nada. Zip. My next plan run happens to be 13.1 miles on Sunday morning. I wish I could get pyched up for it, but I guess I'm looking at it as just another run.

I hope to see Cindy there. Consider leaving her some comment love, she's facing her first full Marathon at the same venue!! Go Cindy Go!!

This morning we went out for a little 'retail therapy'. I'm pleased to have found a gym-girl skirt on sale. I've toyed with the idea of wearing it on Sunday, but I probably ought to make sure I like running in it before committing to wear it for 13.1 miles. I probably should stick with my favorite running shorts.

Scratch that. Looks like tights may be in order...I just now looked at the weather forcast for Sunday. It's gonna be chilly and they're saying winds 25-35 MPH. Yikes!!

Hey Cindy, you might get to test those new gloves out sooner than you thought. Now I'm wishing I had bought some. :(

P.S. Thanks for all the supportive comments on my last post. You folks make it hard for me to sulk around for too long. :)

  3. I'm totally into retail therapy. I just went to the expo and found some RUNLIKEAGIRL stuff. SO cute. They have a new stocking cap with a hole for the pony tail. Of course I had to have one. :D Also a nice long sleeve black technical shirt.

    HAVE A GREAT TIME, LISA!!!

  10. Lisa, first, sorry about all your troubles, especially with your dad. Maybe now is the time to make peace?
    Second, good luck on Sunday! Don't worry about your time, just focus on finishing and knowing how good you will feel for having accomplished another big event. I'll be waiting for the race report!

  11. Good luck!

    And smart call on the gym skirt... NNORD and all (Nothing New on Race Day).

    Let me know how you like the gym skirt though, I've always thought about getting one, but never really was sure.

  13. Yeah, a skirt tomorrow might not be a good idea. Tights will work though. Anyhow, cold is better than hot.
