Holy Cow! I'm back from Lake Powell, it was a GREAT vacation!!! www.CarpeDiem95.blogspot.com if you want to see slideshow from the trip. 

I can't believe SGM is 12 days away! I feel really out of touch with it this year.  I think that's mostly because I've relied so much on my friend Heather to train & run the races with me.  Now that she's pregnant, I'm on my own except for occasional runs with the Sole Sisters.  This morning I just couldn't pull myself out of bed.  Its like I'm mentally OVER the marathon already.  BUT- since I'm blogging I hope someone reads this who will hold me accountable: I'm going to meet the Sole Sistas early tomorrow morning to see if my body can still run.  HOLD ME TO IT! After a couple of runs this week I'll re-access my final SGM goals.   At this point I'm ready for it to be over and to enjoy some shorter races this fall & winter.

Good luck all you other bloggies who are on the final marathon push!

4.5 on treadmill after work.  Expected my legs to feel fresher after all the time off, but they didn't.  At least my arch pain is gone- that is a very good thing! It took me almost 3 miles to warm up, then I started scooting along pretty well.  My speed is not up to par.  I'll really be relying on those downhills to help me out with my speed come race day!

Nice solo run this morning, watching the sun come up.  Started to feel the old runner in me coming back.  Still took 2-3 miles to warm up.  Over all pace about 9:30, not great- but that's as good as its going to get at this point so close to the marathon. Did have a little arch pain afterwards, looks like I'll be doping with ibuprofen pre-race.  Here's the marathon goals:

Ambitious Gold- 3:45:XX (BQ)

Attainable Silver- 3:52:XX

Acceptable Bronze- anything under 4:00, last years SGM's time

Getting excited, esp. to see FRB friends, go to expo and get 'er done! Hope the weather is as delightful as it was last year.  Its a treat to have such a great marathon in my own backyard, I'll try to enjoy every second of it!

last of the marathon course with heather.  really nice run & great conversation.  fun to catch up with heather since we haven't run together in awhile. the last 2 miles of the marathon were a mental killer for me last year so it was nice to run that in preparation.
