Easy Does It

ORN: 3 miles, 36 min, 4/1, treadmill

I'm on the road [what's new?] and had to run early in the day [not my favorite]. It was still dark [YIKES. How do people do that every day?] so I opted for the treadmill at the hotel.

The most important things to do are: 1] break into a little sweat to fight off any nasty bugs going around, 2] get good blood flow into my legs to keep them loose, 3] don't do anything stupid.

I had a "marathon" dream last night. A nightmare, really. I missed the start. I forgot my watch. I was wearing regular shorts and a polo shirt. Part of the marathon went threw a house: up stairs, through rooms, and back down stairs and out!

Yep. 40 marathons and I still have nightmares about missing the start!

Waddle on, friends.

Great blog. I run a home furnishings site. It's a guide to quality home furnishings, apparel and gift sites around the web. Stop by sometime!

Do you think anyone has ever actually been late to the start of a marathon? I doubt it!

Have a good and RESTFUL week!

I don't have to be asleep to have your dream...in preparing for my first marathon, all kinds of thoughts & fears are going thru my mind the closer I get to race day (Oct 30th - MCM)...they kinda hang out in the back of my mind as I go about my day...every time they surface, I do try to fight them off with "right brain" talk...not sure if it's working!!!!

Hey, I am having a lot of scary thoughts as well. I run my second marathon on October 16 and I am suffering some foot pain so I skipped my weekend run and a few other runs this week to heal.(deep breath)

I have cold sweats now that I have typed that out.

Whitney,
If you can think it up it has probably happened. My brother was running his first marathon in San Antonio. He realized he forgot his number and had to go back to his hotel room. When he got back to the start line he had to ask which way did they go. He spent the whole race passing penguins.
