Good luck on race day!!! You will do so great! Any recommendations for great marathon training plans?? I’m running my 6th marathon this fall and looking for a good plan to follow to run a faster race!

Hey JP!! I am so so excited for you to run your 6th marathon. Which one are you planning on racing? Outside of having a coach (is that a possibility? that is my biggest recommendation).. I’ve used Hanson’s Half Marathon training plan (I’m sure the marathon one is great too) and SmartCoach from Runner’s World (not sure that still exists). I’ve also just kind of joined in on whatever my friends were doing too! Keep me updated, I’m super excited for you!

Sentence of the day—-“Just the good stuff!!!!”

Have FUN at your half this weekend! I have a 5K on Saturday—when it hurts, I’ll just think, “At least I’m not running 13.1 miles!” ha ha ha ha ha Every distance has its special kind of pain and reward!!!!!

Reply

GO JEN GO!! You are going to rock that 5k and I better get to hear all about it. Hahah that is so so true… and the 5k has a fun pain to go with it too;) . Have a great time girl!

YAY! Can’t wait to meet/see you this weekend!! Hoping to join the Friday morning run before work 😊

Reply

I cannot wait to see you Katrina!!! CANNOT WAIT TO RUN TOGETHER!!!

I hope you have a great race on Saturday!

I was born and raised on the east side of Indy and moved to Iowa 10 years ago after grad school. The whole month of May is a big celebration for the Indy 500 race on Memorial Day weekend. The footrace sort of kicks off the whole festival for the community! High humidity is normal, especially when its raining. Good luck!!

Reply

Oh really!?!? I am so excited to get to be a part of this. I love how excited everyone is. Good to know, thanks so much Kaelin and have a beautiful day!

Reply

Don’t worry, 91% humidity at 55F is a dewpoint of about 52F. Anything below a 60F dewpoint isn’t too bad, only thing is you’ll not evaporate as much sweat so lube up to prevent chafing.

Reply

I need to ask you these questions before every race. Also, I NEED DETAILS ABOUT SPAIN!?!?!?!

We travel with my husband’s job and usually live Indy a few months a year, but I’m sad we aren’t going this year. Have so much fun!! You have to try The Flying Cupcake (and the rest of Massachusetts Avenue) and Broad Ripple is the cutest!! If someone tells you to eat a fried porkchop sandwich, Binkley’s is the best.

Reply

You do!? That is so so cool… you guys get to experience all sorts of places, I love it. Fried porkchop sandwich, that sounds amazing. Thank you so much, I can’t wait. Maybe next year we can all do it together!

Have fun in Indy! I did the marathon there 2 years ago and it’s a fun city. If you go back with the kids you must take them to the children’s museum. It was AMAZING!!!

Reply

Oh that is awesome!! So I actually might be going to that museum on Friday for a bit too! I can’t wait to see this city. Have a beautiful day Donna!

Reply

I think you will like pushing the pace and will be fitter than you thought – have so much fun – I wish I could go, Charlie too! I just got that yellow tank, is that lulu?

Reply

YES!! It is… I just love that color, don’t you?! Thank you so much and maybe we can all do it again next year?!

“Don’t forget to do your stretches!” (for my tight IT bands)

Have a great time at the race! (I know you asked yesterday and I am not sure you’ll remember this haha but I am doing Detroit for my full this fall. :) ) It’s been 3 days since my half and I am already wanting to start another training cycle!

Reply

I need to send you a reminder to stretch too! Tight IT bands are not fun. I DO REMEMBER! You are doing it in October! I am so so excited for you. Oh I get that, we are sure addicted to this sport:) . Have a beautiful day and way to go on your half!

My sentence for day…….”University finals week so this means saying “see you later” to many faculty who won’t be back until August.” The quietness will be nice for about a week and then it’s too quiet. Our office of 10 drops to 1 (me, the admin assistant). The plus side to summer break is getting my workout in on my lunch break in the campus fitness center when I want and how I want. Can’t complain, I love my job.

Reply

Betsy! That must feel like quite the change! I am SO happy you love your job and yay for workouts during lunch. That’s exciting! Have a beautiful day Betsy!

Reply

I think “where you are fitness wise” is… pretty darn fit!! haha Maybe reframing to “where you are recovery wise” would take pressure off and help you not push it too much and risk injury.
I SO remember that feeling of dreading and looking forward to my first day on the job as an RN. It’ll be challenging, but you’ll all do just fine.
Sentence: “I hope one day I get to go to a Janae meetup.” Also, Skye’s ponytail kills me! :)

Reply

Stacey, that is very very true and something I need to remind myself over and over again on Saturday! I think my goal is to go for a smile 1/2 marathon PR:) . I’m going to tell Andrew what you just said. WE BETTER GET TO MEET UP SOMEDAY!! Also, is your little dude practically running now? I don’t know how but Skye went from timid walking to sprinting around the house lately!

Reply

I love that purple run shirt! Where is it from? I love all shirts that say the word run like you mentioned one time!

Reply

HEY MARY!! It is from Brooks and I can’t find it online anymore BUT this one is so cute:

Today’s goal, besides keeping kids alive, is to get the birds to leave my car alone haha. I swear they are targeting it. 4 bird poops in less than 24 hours. Looks like the car wash will have a new frequent customer hahahaha.

My sentence for the day is “go with the flow”! It’s been my goal lately, and so far this week, so good! ;)

Have a great Wednesday!!

I just watched Brene Brown and then had to watch her ted talks and I ordered a book. We are a swimmer family so that attracted me to her too! She is so funny. I played the breaststroke piece of her Netflix show for my oldest daughter. She loved it but didn’t fully embrace it because she turned to me and said “I mean I get it and everything, she did it, great job for hanging in there but Mom, breaststroke is my best stroke ever”…. Sigh.

Goodluck and have fun!!
