I ran 12 miles this morning. It was a drop back week so it didn't really feel that long. Even though I say that in all honestly, it still seems like crazy talk to me. This line of thinking signals the fact that I am nearly finished with my marathon training---I have fully entered into a period of insanity where running less than two and a half hours at a time seems "nice" and discussion of my many aches and pains causes my kids to shout "TMI mom, TMI!!".
Lucy spent the afternoon with my mom and since I figured I'd earned a little rest from that run, I decided it was a great time to get a jump start on Christmas. It was such a fun afternoon! I made our family Advent calendar and organized myself for all of the fun ahead. I turned on my Christmas Pandora station but it was too early even for me. I'll try in another week or so!
It's back to November tomorrow but Christmas is coming and I'm so thankful!
