blogiversary

Monday Musings

→  Congratulations to all my friends (in real life and online) who completed the Boston Marathon today!  I hope all of you had an amazing experience whether it was the race of your dreams or not.  I can’t wait to hear all about it!

→  I ran my last long-ish run on Sunday (23km/14mi).  Thankfully the weather was great – sun, cloud, and a little bit of wind.  I didn’t have any fueling issues so I’m pretty confident for race day.  I felt a little sluggish, but I’m thinking that it was due to running on pea gravel for quite a bit of the run and my legs weren’t used to it.

→  It’s TAPER TIME!!!  Less than 2 weeks to go to race day.  I’m thankful that I’ve been through this before and understand that Taper Madness is a real affliction.  I’ve already started to have crazy dreams.  The one last night had me running the first half of my marathon on a treadmill (I’ve never run on one at all…).  Then the next day I had to run the remainder of the race, but there was something to do with trains, a shopping centre downtown, and multiple running friends.  I kind of wish I could remember it accurately.  I’m sure that the paranoia of becoming sick will kick in soon as well.

→  I missed my blogging anniversary (blogiversary?) a couple of days ago.  As of 15 April it’s been a year since I started rambling on here.  Thanks to everyone who stops by (more than once!) and takes the time to read and comment on things that I’m not sure have much value.  I know how much other people’s blogs have helped me out and inspired me and if I’ve done that for even one of you that’s awesome!  I’d love to promise some sort of giveaway to celebrate, but you shouldn’t hold your breath…  Eventually I’ll save enough pennies to do something HUGE.  You’ll just have to stop by once in a while to see if it ever happens. ☺
