I’m always worried she’s not going to like the jogging stroller after an extended break, but she was still a happy camper. I don’t know what I’m going to do if/when she starts putting up a fight.
Yesterday I did 6 by myself (45:23, 7:33/mi pace). Today will be a rest day, tomorrow will be 5 miles easy. Then maybe a mile or two, plus some striders, on Saturday morning just to loosen up.
So this race on Sunday is going to be small. Much smaller than I realized, like 500 people total. I’ve heard the full marathon is popular among the 50 Staters, so I was kind of surprised when I looked at the race results from previous years. I guess I was anticipating something similar to other local races like the Silver Comet Half, which draws about 1,500 runners from the ATL metro.
Anywhoo, I swore off my iPod months ago, but I’m thinking about bringing it back. Without crowds and a lot of other runners to draw energy from, this could be a very long and lonely 13.1. I’m even going to pony up the money to add some new songs to my playlist. Cause even that old classic Camel Toe by Fanny Pack can get old after a while, teehee.
iPods are the window to the soul. Isn’t that how the saying goes?
