Today in My Life

I saw this post over on Journey Through Life a while ago and thought it was fun… you should join in too!

Outside my window … is a blue sky with the sun getting ready to set.

I am hearing … Kylie chewing her bone, one of her favorite activities.

I am thinking … about the Boston Marathon – what else do I think about these days?

I am thankful … for my husband, family, friends and readers who support my obsession with running and haven’t told me to shut my mouth about Boston yet!

I am reading26 Miles to Boston and I need to hurry up and finish it!

I am hoping and praying … that I do not get sick this time during taper.

I am wearing … a sweatshirt and Nike tempo shorts – what else do I wear when I am at home?

I am creating … countless blog posts for the next two weeks.  I really want to make sure to document everything well and I have some fun (in my opinion) posts coming up to do just that!

From the kitchen … pizza tonight – my favorite pre-long run meal!

Around the house … lots of relaxing!  Sleeping pets, running clothes set out, movies playing and computer on. 

Plans for the rest of the week … tomorrow I have a long run with Alyssa that I am very excited for!  Next week includes more tapering, starting to pack for Boston (yes I pack a week in advance), and trying to contain any tamper tantrums that might appear. 

A Picture to share … from today’s SFM training run at Lake Chabot – fun, tough day pacing with Kristin!

    Love these posts! I’m going to steal it along with the accent vlog at some point here!! Two more weeks of Boston obsessing and then you can obsess for 4 more weeks about how you did:) I doubt your readers want you to shut your mouth-ha!! I love reading about your thoughts relating to a MAJOR race that you poured your heart and soul into!!!! Good luck the next couple of weeks! Big reward waiting on the 18th:)

    Boston is ALWAYS on my mind right about now too. Can it just be here already? Taper time always gets to me. Restless leg syndrome of a different kind. Haha. Oh and I ordered my official Boston Marathon jacket with the 15% coupon yesterday. Can’t wait for it to get here!!!!

    Hm, maybe I’ll steal the accent vlog, too, ha, with my accent, that would be pretty entertaining!
    I remember the obsessionmeter going up with each day getting me closer to Boston in 2oo9. You’ve worked so hard and you are almost there! You’ll have a blast! So keep talking about Boston:)

    Oh my gosh – you ran at Lake Chabot? How many miles and on what trails? Did you love it? Next to Garin, it’s my favorite place to run. Beautiful, eh? ;)
