17 Days

17 days until the big day!
I’m finally feeling like I can do this. Last week I went to Pure Barre on Monday, ran 8 miles on Tuesday, and 16 miles in Central Park on Saturday. Though the last two miles of the 16 miler were a little hard, I knew that if I needed to run 10 more miles I could.

I’m also getting excited for Marathon Week here in New York. There’s so many fun things to do before the marathon and everyone is so happy and excited. The City gets over”run” by tourists (get it?!?). They just run around everywhere in spandex. It’s very amusing. It’s just a really fun time AND it’s right around my birthday! (I’m turning 27…)

I hit up the Running Company today and bought a new pair of shoes, gels and a new water bottle (my old one got mold in it somehow- how does that happen?) for the marathon. I love new running stuff! And shopping in general i guess…

This weekend we’re headed to New Jersey for some Fall fun and of course, some running will happen.
