WTG! You did awesome for so little training!
towson~ You're gonna do great! I heard this great mantra from some wise person I know..."Don't think, just run!"
It really does work!
bec~Definitely take them back. Any running store worth their salt is going to work with you on that. Heck, my store took my shoes back with 30 outdoor miles on them, even though it was *completely* my fault the shoes weren't working! (I had my orthotics re-covered and the extra thickness of the foam was painfully smashing the tops of my feet into the tops of the shoes)
You are SO going to kick some major marathon butt! You're totally ready!!
: Seriously, you are so completely smoking fast. I'm jealous! Awesome times! And I hear you on the hanging up the swimsuit and goggles. I've been having the same feeling. Still debating on a half next month. I think if I can get out for a decent long run (say 7 or more) in the next week and it feels ok, I might be able to pull it together for Oct. 19!
Drive report~OMG, you guys. It was so stinking EASY
. DS was a complete angel. He got slightly cranky right before lunch, and then again about an hour after lunch when he was tired but fighting falling asleep, but that was it. Thank God for Elmo, is all I have to say. My only complaint is: why can't they put multiple episodes on one dvd, so I don't have to pull over every 50 minutes to switch them?!? DS watched Elmo (all 5 episodes!), drank his milk, and ate his bagel I picked up for breakfast. I didn't even need to bust out the bribery treats. I could be totally screwed for the drive back to Denver, it was that easy.
We're heading out to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse tomorrow, which I'm excited about. I think we're also going to try to do this drive-through wildlife sanctuary in the morning, and hopefully I'll be able to get out for a run while DS is napping in the afternoon.
