2. This is me, every day.
4. SO cute, AND SO FAST that we won first in our division (by we, I sincerely mean, the 11 fast people who dragged me along, because believe me when I say, we won DESPITE me).
5. I hear magic happens in Eugene.
I'm really going in unprepared, I think. My long runs have been pretty much non-existent:
April 13 - 20 miles (11:25 pace)
April 8 - 13 miles (11:23 pace)
March 30 - 15 miles, but should have been 20 (11:25 pace)
March 17 - 15 miles, plus 4 miles earlier in the day (11:07)
March 3 - 18 miles (11:07 pace)
Okay, I guess when I type it out in a list, it doesn't actually look THAT awful. It's not ideal; at least I got some long stuff in. But, clearly I've gotten significantly slower (credited to running about half of the miles I should have run in training).
Ideally, it will be a glorious day, and the weather will be great, and we'll breeze in sub-5 and be happy.
Or, maybe beat my SFM time from last July (5:10:xx).
Or, not get swept and/or die (7 hour course limit).
I am REALLY excited for Eugene, even if I kind of blew off my goal race training plan because I'm lame. But I'm excited for the course, and I'm REALLY excited to see a bunch of my friends.
And the beer, of course. The beer.
Anyone want to take a guess at my Eugene time??
Maybe I'll toss out a free tube of Nuun to whoever comes the closest ;).
Have a good weekend!
