Officially two weeks out (Read 132 times)

    Two weeks out, here's hoping the weather changes. 55 degrees (which was perfect) but 20-30 mph winds! I can handle just about anything on race day, please no high winds! My run today was 1/2 my marathon course...pretty hilly, but there were times it just felt like I was running in place when against the wind. Thank goodness for my running group, would have never made it alone. BUT my pace for my 14 was like 8:27??? 8:37??? One of those two which for the circumstances, I thought kicked arse! So, now I just have to not freak out for two weeks. I don't think that is going to happen. So tempting to run tomorrow...but its scheduled day off, I'm never going to make it through these two weeks of taper without going mad!
