First, let’s talk about the Boston Marathon. It’s always so inspiring to watch. And boy could I feel for those runners in the cold and wet weather.

I streamed the marathon on my computer while at work and¬†while I watched the winners cross I was called away from my desk and missed seeing Meb hold hands with that elite woman. Thank god it was posted everywhere! He’s the bomb. I think if I could meet any runner I’d pick him.

OK, so tonight when I came home from work I walked the dog for about 30 minutes and then i took off for my run. It’s probably the penultimate of my training cycle. I’m hoping to squeeze one more easy peasy 2 or 3 miles on Thursday or Friday.

Now because I’m starting to get into my obsessive all about that base marathon mode I looked up the weather forecast first.

looks good to me!

And then, because I’m a numbers geek, I went to see how many miles I logged last year in preparation for the 2014 NJ Marathon and how many little I ended up running for the 2015 NJ Marathon.

hmmm, less than half of the miles as last year.

Yikes! I am so undertrained! But I’m still so excited to run. I’m actually looking forward to¬†hitting the wall boardwalk in Asbury Park at mile 20.

I just yawned so I better wrap this up and what better way than with cute doodle pics…

Sloppy sit!

If you could meet any elite runner who would it be?

Are you a numbers person? Do you look at your running statistics all the time?
