Silentish Saturday!

Off to Sacramento this morning!

Yesterday started off with 2 miles and some strides at a bit faster than marathon pace (4 x 20 seconds).  The 2 miles felt awful but the strides felt amazing.

Today : cleaning the house (booh), searching for a christmas present for my mom (i want to find something special, maybe an immaterial present, but i don’t know for the moment), and relax :)
(no running for 48hours because yesterday i went to the osteopath.)

Three things I am doing today:
Running my first spartan race….fingers crossed I make it across the monkey bars and make my 6 year old proud, she kills it on the playground :)

Cheering on my kiddos doing the kids race….it will be a fun change to actually encourage them to get muddy.

And last but not least thinking all sorts of positive and happy thoughts for you!!! You are such an inspiration and I know you are going to have an amazing race!!! Hope you hear all your readers cheering for you in your head tomorrow when you are running!!!

Tomorrow’s gonna be great, Janae!
And happy birthday to Miss Skye. We traveled back to Hawaii yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to comments on yesterday’s post.
It’s marathon weekend – the Honolulu marathon is tomorrow, too! I’ll be spectating and cheering for everyone. Les will be with the cycling team escorting the wheelchair racers so we’ll be up at o’dark thirty since the race starts at 5:00 a.m. here. I’ll be thinking of you as I watch the elites cross the finish line!

Ahhhh, so excited for you Janae! Go get it!!

Hey question which version of the brooks shoes would you recommend for lots of miles on the treadmill like which pair would be best overall!?!? Can only afford one pair right now

Reply

I’m in the Bay area…I think the rain will stop in the very early am so you should be good plus all the wind is today…it’ll be perfect,
Go get it! Cheering for ya!

I am so excited for you!! Did my last long run before my half next weekend. Funny, it was a breeze. When I started this training I never thought 7 + miles would feel easy!!

Dropped my kids off for Christmas activities with my Mom, going to gather all the gifts and start wrapping while they are away, and then my husband and I have a party tonight. We would much rather just enjoy the kid free night at home but I think we will have a good time!!!

I went to DICK’S sporting goods to grab some GU and this guy in line says “ I love that stuff, eat it as a a pick me up a lot”. I asked if he was a runner “ Nah, just really like the stuff”…. That’s a first!!! I could suggest about 100 other foods…

Good luck! Will be cheering for you from afar!

I ran a great (for me) half this morning! While I was in the 13th mile and dying, I thought…she’s going to kill that race tomorrow, surely, I can finish this one! 😊😊 have the best time!!!! (LOL, get it? “Best time”😂maybe I haven’t recovered from my race yet🤣)

Good luck tomorrow Janae! I’ll be cheering you on from the Netherlands.

Wishing you lots of good thoughts! I hope you and Emilee have a wonderful day tomorrow.

You’ll do great! Enjoy every moment as much as possible, I’m so inspired by you, praying that you can stay focused and keep a positive mindset even though any pain. You’ve got this.

Good luck Janae. You are going to do so well and enjoy. You’ve worked hard to be there.

Today I am:
Going to pick out a tree
Decorate the house
Got to the Nashville Striders Holiday Party with my family!
Then hopefully: plan the next 4 days of meals as I have evening events each night and want to make life semi-normal for my husband and son :)

Good luck good luck good luck! Look for all the Oiselle birds flying fast at CIM!
