I was just taking a quick peek at the miles and races I’ve logged in so far this year…

I’ve logged over 1,100 miles (between running and walking)
I’ve completed one 5kthree 10ks, ten half marathons and one full marathon

check!

check!

I still have one full marathon and one half marathon yet to complete and I’ll probably close up the year with about 1,300 miles. Sheesh! That’s a whole lotta running. Definitely more than last year although I can’t find my little scrap of paper with last years tally.

And this is my 75th blog post! OK enough statistics.

I had another snoozefest yesterday morning so i did my run on the dreadmill (I am not a fan of indoor running) at the gym during my lunch break. I went with a nice short 3 miles but kept the intensity high and broke into quite the sweat.

That’s the key to tapering. I listened to my friend new album No Amends from his band The Infinite Staircase !

No Amends!

It had 7 songs totaling just over 27 minutes. I had to listen to one song twice since I ran 29 minutes but that’s ok. I picked the title track to repeat. It’s my fave! Knowing a lot about what was on his mind when he wrote these songs really inspires me when I run! I’ll definitely have all the songs woven into my playlist for the NYC Marathon. Speaking of….look what came in the mail yesterday…

We’re down to 11 days! I had a dream last night that they ran out of water during the marathon and I had to pop into a deli in the Bronx and they couldn’t break a $10 bill so I had to wait for someone else to buy something. Then I ran over the wrong bridge…needless to say I woke up before crossing the finish line. It was not fun. I’m glad it was just a dream. Nerves I suppose.

Off to enjoy my penultimate day of being in my 30s. I love the word penultimate. Speaking of birthday….I’m hoping someone gets me a plumber. My sink is broke!

Question: Do you log your mileage and races? Do you have a favorite unique word?
