Taper Mode


All this plan-making that’s been going down over the past few days is getting me pumped :) Boston is going to be one heck of an experience! I’m ready to soak. it. UP.

Last Thursday, Weez and I celebrated our anniversary, so we got dressed up, enjoyed a great dinner, and saw a movie. A perfect date night. We reminisced about the beginning of “us”, we dreamt about our future, we appreciated the moment. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel wordlessly thankful to have Weez in my life. He’s so good to me. He’s my perfect match; truly the ying to my yang.

On Friday, we drove up to Wyoming to kick it with my brother. Will had his geo friends over for a comfort food Friday festivity, and for one of the first times, Weez was introduced as my fiance (it’ll never get old!). And then as my brother’s future brother-in-law. It’s so cool to hear that.

The three of us went for a very windy 11 mile run – the last of my long runs – on Saturday. I seem to always forget how dang windy that place gets, and how much harder it is to run at 7,200′. I love running with those two guys. My big bro and my fiance? Could I be more lucky to train with 2 of my favorite guys?

This week is full on taper mode, so I went for a nice, light, 25 minute run this AM. I’ve almost got my marathon playlist perfect, I just need a few more new tunes (yes, I’m considering downloading Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never”… don’t judge me). What’s a must-have on your running playlist?

Just a few more easy runs, then here comes Boston! ONE WEEK from this moment and I’ll be running the Boston marathon! Woop woop!

    AWESOME!! You must be feeling great right now. Hmm a few must haves: Lose Yourself by Eminem, Run this Town by Jay-Z, Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z, She F’in Hates Me by Puddle of Mudd, hmm… um… why am I totally blanking? If I think of some more, I’ll let you know.

    The new song from Glee is really good, if you’re into that. I just downloaded a bunch of good running tunes too — my first ever 5k is on Saturday. You’re an inspiration girl!! :D

    Wow. Bieber. You and my wife. I’m not gonna tell you “don’t run with an iPod” but … make sure it’s not too loud that you can’t hear the spectators. They’re a big part of what makes Boston so fun.

    1. For sure… I load up the ipod for the “just in case” I need music (aka, the wall). I didn’t plug in my ipod at Cleveland till mile 18 and that was only cause there were no spectators around. Good call, Sam! :)
