In six days…

In six days, I’ll be running 13.1 miles from San Luis Obispo to Shell Beach, California aka, City to the Sea.

After yesterday’s ten-miler, I realized my most challenging mile: the tenth mile. My legs felt like they were going to snap clean off my torso–I’m very glad they did not.

On the upside of post-high-mileage input is the euphoric sensation titillating my synoptic sensors: I feel fantastic!

Until Sunday my friends.

Ciao for now,

In two weeks…

In two weeks, I’ll be running in a race that my mind is ready for only my body isn’t quite there yet….

What to do, what to do?

I’ll run the race anyway, throw caution to the wind, die trying or something of the like. Until then and only after will I know exactly what transpired in my near fancy-footed future.

Ciao for now,

The Mini-Mountain Challenge….

Gotta want it!

Soon, I’ll be jogging ALL the way up this mini-mountain. But for now, a cruising pace does the trick. šŸ™‚

It’s official, I am now signed up to do the City to the Sea Half Marathon! My friend and I celebrated last night by dining on a heart-healthy enchilada casserole I made—if you’d like the recipe, shoot me a note—and leftover bulgur salad. Yumyum!

Tonight I will walk/jog for six miles on predominantly flat land (I prefer going uphill, but I’ll settle for what I can get in. Plus, cross-training is essential in the preparation of a half marathon.

Ciao for now.
