1 more week of fun before Miami Marathon training begins!
I had a decent week—22 miles total for my biggest week since my return to running. Next week I will back off a little bit to recover for Week 1 and the official start to Miami Marathon training.
Motivation this week was low but I was able to get Georgie out the door for 6 total miles, which actually helped me get out the door on days that I wasn’t feeling it.
I had 10 miles on the schedule for Sunday. Yes, Sunday. I had the day off and it rained all day Saturday! I went out pretty hard and wasn’t feeling all that great. I actually convinced myself that I was only going to run 6 miles until I got home (after 6 miles) and decided to see what Georgie could do. I was really surprised she made it 2.5 miles—mostly in the woods, her favorite—so I had to finish off my 10 miles with a fast, solo mile and a half. Then I spent the rest of the day on the couch. Literally all day. I made Buffalo Chicken Dip, had a killer soup in the Crock Pop and the Bills beat the Pats. It was a fabulous Sunday.

· My cousins Melissa and Michele ran the Queen City Women's Half Marathon in Buffalo, NY on Sunday! I’m so proud of them—it was Melissa’s second half and Michele’s third. They stayed together every mile and helped either other get to the finish line.
· 4 weeks until the Cape Cod Half!
· 17 weeks until the Miami Marathon!
