Catch Up Time

Dear Friends,

It has been a few days since I have written and this post is going to be a mash-up of the last few days. Wednesday I realized I had not been experimenting with food all month so I have no idea what I am taking to Thanksgiving dinner! So I made these: 

And these:

                                                                   With this:

Though they look like sloppy mess they are delicious!!!! I need to perfect the technique but oh my goodness! They also do not fall in the category of healthy at all, to be honest this might the most unhealthy thing I have made and eaten in a long time. But it was so worth every single calorie.

Thursday I woke up for my run and found that it was 

I also just noticed that this picture is from the wrong town, however it was indeed this cold in Athens also. So I got dressed like this
Hot I know I learned something on this run, I was shooting for 4 miles just a short run before this weekend race. I made it 1 count it 1 mile from my house before I realized that my legs were so cold it was excruciatingly painful! So I put my head down and ran home to thaw out. i learned that for the race this weekend I will need to purchase a pair of leggings or running tights to wear under my shorts so that I can make it all 9 miles at 8:00am. 

On to today Friday. This morning I did something that made me feel good about my decision to go to London. I offered my spot for Disney half marathon to a friend of mine who wanted so badly to run the full marathon but was unable to commit soon enough. She is considering the option and if there is enough time to train from where she is right now. She is also if I had to guess evaluating if her body can handle the stress she would be asking to to undertake right now. I hope more than anything she will be able to do it! I hope that we both get to do something we have always wanted to to. 

Ok so last thing! This race this weekend is like killing me right now! I am so nervous my stomach sits in a constant state of knots. I am trying not to think about it as best I can. I got the email today with my bar code to pick up my packet and my corral number. This is really happening! I can do it I know I can but come on who isn't nervous before a race?! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will recap the race early next week.

  1. You are going to have so much fun this weekend at the race, I promise!! The atmosphere and other runners will be sooo exciting!

    I find dressing for early morning races so hard. I can never estimate how my body will react and the last time, I got way too warm.grr! It's good you figured out that you'll probably need something warm for the race!
