1. Thanks to TMB and Lesley for dropping by yesterday with their coachy opinions! You both had excellent points. I obviously understand that marathon training is a new ball game compared to half training; I know my mileage will have to be kicked up a notch (or 5...). I just need to find the balance that's going to work for my circumstances.
2. My calves are tight, and my legs feel.... Tired? What the heck, legs? You've done better in the past, stop whining!
3. XLMIC, who is coming down for Long Beach, offered to let me bunk in her hotel, walking distance to the finish line. The timliness of the offer was astounding - I had JUST decided I wanted to see what hotels are available!
and that, folks, is why I'm in love with the Internet. How else would I meet strangers who are instant friends?
