Three Things Thursday

1. Outdoor Run - Arvada Loop - Thursday, September 2. Didn't have to get up TOO early because L was also planning on going in later to work. Essentially I got up the same time I used to when I had to be at work at 6:30. Wore my rad pink dot skirt and pink compression socks. Cool pic of the sun coming up over the golf course a few miles in:

Had some minor bathroom issues that thankfully were resolved about halfway through the run... with our late start there was an office building open... HURRAH!! 8.64 miles done before work in about 95 minutes (thanks to the bathroom shenanigans - and I never stop the Garmin from start to finish).

2. Todays run is my last run before we go to HAWAII!!! I'm taking tomorrow off (travel day) and then we will be doing only an "easy" 3-5 miler on Saturday with Dean Karnazes and Bart Yasso! Race day is bright and early on Sunday... Gotta say I feel about as prepared as I'm ever going to. I know it's goign to be hot, I know it's going to be humid, and I know it's going to be hilly. I also know that it's in Hawaii and therefore will be awesome no matter what.

3. Less than 60 days until the Athens Marathon in Greece. Where did the time go? I do not feel even CLOSE to being ready. And I'm sad my sister wasn't able to raise the money to join me. I'm not used to running by myself, certainly not all the way in Greece. Bummed.

  5. Wow, we could have run together today, I did 8.66 in 90 minutes with (sadly) no bathroom shenanigans. Of course, I left at the respectable hour of 8:00 and was not wearing a cute running skirt.
