Saturday Fun

Today was perfect!  Since I have my long run tomorrow I had the morning to sleep in.  At a late 7:00 I woke up and refused to do anything other than drink coffee and lay on the couch for a good 2 hours.  It was great.  Once I got the motivation to get moving I made some chocolate chip zucchini bread.  I used the recipe from Busy Little Beaver!  Other than adding chocolate chips I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.

After doing a few things around the house and hanging with the pups, J and I headed to a local casino for Forks and Corks!

With booths offering different food and drinks, we walked around and hung out for a few hours.  The weather was perfect!  It was chilly enough to feel like fall with only a couple of clouds in the sky.  We also got to spend time with good friends so there were lots of laughs!

good friends and good weather

As for tonight, we are hanging in.  I am not too happy with this but tomorrow morning is my LAST long run before race day. EEEE!!!  I am nervous and excited and stressed all in one!  I can’t wait for the race to be here!  Tomorrow’s run is short compared to what I am used to…only 1 hour.  But I get to run a little faster than normal so I am looking forward to it!  I need tomorrow’s run to be GREAT.  I think it will really help my confidence for next Sunday.

I have also been stalking the weather.  Race day is officially in the 10 day forecast! I know it will change at least 10343 times between now and then, but so far so good!

After my run tomorrow I plan on cheering on local competitors at the Pocono Ironman!

Tell me one fun thing you did/plan on doing this weekend!

  1. I ran in my first cross country race today! I missed out on xc in high school, but I finally get to experience it in college. It was actually REALLY tough – I didn’t know that running on grass was different from running on pavement.
