Guess what I did today!
I actually fixed my hair! And in a somewhat-current style. I know! Yea me!
I had to document it because it may not happen for another 5 years.
Guess what else I did...I ran twenty miles of the Ogden course with my running partners on Friday evening. My awesome sister Sarah met us downtown in Odgen, drove us up past the start of the race and dropped us off in the middle of nowhere on the top of a mountain and then we ran 20 miles, in 2 hours 45 minutes mind you--which ends up being about 8:20 miles. I know! I did give myself an it band injury but I think it's on the mend (hopefully). I am starting to gain a bit of confidence about actually running the race.
I also have to mention that my friend Jenny met us afterward and drove 3 stinky, sweaty, excitment deprived moms to their car on her Friday night. Thank you Jenny.
And, I have to mention that my dad watched my kids. Thank you dad.
It takes a village to help a mom train for a marathon.
