A hop, skip and a jump.....nervous jitters :o)

In 2.5 days I will be running in my first 10K. I am ready. I ran 6 miles last Sunday in 1hr 6 min. I ran 2 yesterday at a 10:44 pace and will run 4 miles of hills tomorrow. Stretch, foam roller, yoga and hydrate. I am ready.
Tomorrow the calls go out to the 5/3rd Road Warrior Finalists. I am scared out of my mind. Nervous, anxious and kinda flipping out. If my phone rings I need to interview on November 3rd for a final spot. I want my phone to ring because I want to run 15.5 miles. I have decided that even if I don't get a spot that I am going to train for the run. Crazy, I know.
Two of my girls ran the Children's Marathon in GR last weekend. My oldest ditched us to go to a fall party with Grandma. Aspen (7) and Chloe (5) ran the entire 1.2 miles. I was so proud. They even managed about a 10:44 pace. I have ever seen such determination on a 5 year olds face in my entire life.

I learned a few things this week:
  • When taking Metamucil there is a huge difference between a tablespoon and a teaspoon.
  • My girls have as much determination as their momma :o)
  • I am addicted to Spice Oatmeal with diced apple and sugar free cool whip.
  • Some people don't understand why I work so hard and never will. Wasting my breath is pointless.
  • Without my husband's faith in me I don't know how far on this journey I would of made it.

Go, Tiffany! Good luck! You will rock this 10k!

It is so cool to hear about your daughters running the kids' marathon! Maybe their love for running will start early in life. Awesome.

Oh, and thanks for the advice on tights. I will have to check out Dunhams on my lunch hour today!
