I’ve moved my long run from Sunday to Friday this week, since I am going to be in Miami this weekend.
Oh, wait, did that just slip out? Oh, sorry. I’m not trying to rub it in. It will probably be super-boring just laying by the pool in South Beach all day on Saturday.
I’m going to do a good running deed. Really. I am going to cheer for a motley crew of extended-family running buddies at the ING Miami Marathon (and now, Half-Marathon) this weekend.
Which means: for Saturday a 7 mile run in shorts and a tank top, a slog through the crowded expo, and no drinking; and for Sunday cheering on thousands of marathoners starting at 6 AM. Friggin’ hardships, so don’t be jealous.
Frankly, I need a little bit of inspiration these days to get me through all of these workouts in the dark and the cold. Spectating is the fastest route to inspiration for me (Baby A I point to you specifically; I know you know exactly what I mean).
Oh. So. That’s why I’m running 14 tomorrow afternoon before my flight, so I can jump and cheer instead on Sunday morning.
