A week from right now I will be landing in Chicago!! :) I am very excited for several reasons, I will be able to see both my parents, several friends, uncle, etc. Plus I need a vacay. I am stoked to hit the new Nike Chicago. It was closed when I was there in june.
I am ready to run this race. I am ready to push myself like i never have before. I am ready to be done. I mean done with the first portion of races, because I am having a hard time staying excited about San Fran with the Full looming in front of it.I love being in training--but this close to the race, I look forward to the end. my "end" is just another beginning. I will be spending the following weekend in San Fran and run the Nike Women's half marathon. This week of high mileage races will put my body to the test--but I am ready and stoked to accept the challenge. Even as I think and type that I am ready to be done--it causes a bit of panic. What next? when "done" training I don't then go into hibernation. I am looking forward to having the time (and energy) to try some new things, Pure Barre, Trx, etc. maybe get back into spinning?
What will most likely happen is I will find another race...
Anyone else prepping for October/November Marathons or Half's? How is it going?
I also am looking forward to some time to sew. It is the only home-ec-e thing I enjoy. For whatever reason it calms me. I want to finish several nearly done projects and I want to do some of the online classes I signed up for 6 months ago. I have several presents I need to make... yup, one door closes another opens.
Any suggestions for Chicago or San Fran?
