I can't believe it's actually here but -- I'm finished with marathon training long runs! The last long run was 8 miles, which was actually the same distance as the first long run in training! Since we had an afternoon inservice at school and got out earlier than usual, I did my 8 miles Friday afternoon. It was drizzling and cool and the run felt sluggish, but it was absolutely fabulous to wake up this morning and not have to worry about a long run! I do love long runs, but after 4 straight months of weekend long runs, it's nice to spend this weekend not doing one. Tomorrow I even get to do 3 easy miles with 2 of my "sole sisters", Steph and Heidi.
Mark and I celebrated the end of long runs with margaritas and Mexican food. Just 10 miles to run in the next week and then...the big day!!
