So… I was looking at my calendar today and realized that I am less than 6 weeks away from my marathon! Ok, so this realization was met with a few moments of trepidation and a few moments of panic… After those passed, and I got my head on straight, I am really excited about the run. My training has gone as well as it could with life thrown into the mix, so I am excited to see how the run goes!
On another note, this weekend I am running a mud run on Saturday. I’ve never run one before, so I am super excited. One of my friends is coming in and we are running the mud run in the morning and then enjoying some beer after. Then… on Sunday (and, yes, I fully acknowledge what a brilliant planner I am!!!) a couple of us are running the Bluegrass Half Marathon… Yes… I know, the day before I am doing a mud run through obstacles… I’m a sharp one! Anyway, I am actually quite excited about this weekend as the mud run benefits the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and the Half Marathon fits nicely into my training schedule!

Off to run!
