First off, thank you for all of the wonderful comments on my last post! I especially appreciate the support of posting my time even though I won’t be qualifying for Boston anytime soon. As a very brilliant Meghan said, “A mile is a mile is a mile.” And dammit, I am proud of all 26.4 of the ones I ran!
1. It was my birthday yesterday! Woot! It was very nice to cap off 26 with 26.2 miles and a shiny new PR. Although I’m not a huge birthday person, it was a wonderful day and I felt very loved. And it may seem childish to say, but I am not a fan of this whole no presents thing as you get older. C’mon people! 27 is just as exciting as 10! I think that’s just me though. I’m the girl that still requests that my parents hide the Christmas presents till I go to bed because I like that they just magically show up. A little way to keep some childhood wonder alive. Fella has many endearing and wonderful qualities, but gifts are not one of them. If I married him for that, then I have made a grave mistake!
2. Post Marathon Blues. These are legit. I kind of thought they were just a thing that people talk about, but they surely aren’t. There is this build up over months and months and then all of a sudden, it’s gone. I’m a bit listless. I’m glad that I have a very awesome camping trip coming up this weekend that will help keep my mind busy and distracted.
3. Speaking of, I leave this afternoon for my annual camping trip! So if you need me, tough luck. I will have zero cell service and will be loving every damn second of it.
