1. WDW Marathon- bibs and waivers were released the other day and I've finally got my marathon #: 2116! Once the waivers are released for races everything starts to feel a little more real...37 days and counting
2. Snow! - there is a slight chance it could snow here on Sunday and I am definitely doing a snow dance. I love snow and we haven't had any decent snowfall in about two years. It doesn't look like it will be anything significant but I'll be happy with a dusting. I still wish for a white Christmas every year...those of you who get snow regularly...can you send some my way? Thanks! :)
3. December Goals-
-The WDW Marathon is less than 40 days away (ahhh) and staying focused mentally and physically is key. We have decently long runs (13 + miles) planned each weekend in December in addition to one more 20 miler. My goal is to remember that this race has nothing to do with time. It's about having fun, finishing with a smile and in the upright position (I don't want Cyanne to have to drag or roll me across the finish ;P ).
-Less Sugar ...the holiday treats are so tempting! From candy canes to sugar cookies, pies, cakes and more...everywhere you turn there is some sugary deliciousness. My goal is to save the sweet treats for special occasions (aka: Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Years).
-Cold weather warrior! The temps here are dropping and last year I closed the door and turned to the treadmill for most of my winter running. This year I am stepping outside, bundling up and getting used to the cold weather. I distinctly remember mid July when I came home soaking with sweat and said "I'll take a cold December run over this heat and humidity anyday!"....well, now I've got my chance.
-Hydration is key for me during the winter months. It keeps my skin moisturized, my body moving and it also help to fight fautige and flush out your system. Less hot chocolate, more water!
4. The Sound of what? - I tuned in to the NBC special last night and as much as I love country music, Carrie Underwood and musicals...they do not mix well together...thoughts?
5. Short Long Run- after our 20 miler last weekend we have a little bit of a "break" and this week's long run will be somewhere between 10-13 miles. Do you drop mileage the week after an extra long run?
Question: What is your bib # for marathon weekend? Love snow or hate snow? December goals? Carrie Underwood or Julie Andrews (I'm sure most people will say Julie Andrews which is the correct answer :p)?
