Went on my first road run in 2 1/2 weeks yesterday- 3 miles. It felt great to be on the road again. I felt a little sluggish, but this tapering thing must really do something because I ran much faster than I felt! But it was so cold! When my dad rolls in tomorrow we are planning a brisk walk and then a short boathouse row run /walk on Sat. From the sounds of it he, and my mother, cannot wait until this "running thing of Kristin's" is done. Although I think he is beginning to love the shorter runs.
In other news: I started to decorate for the holidays as my roommate and I (long time friends) are hosting a little family pre-marathon shin dig. I don't have to cook!- just clean, decorate and keep procrastinating from school and work responsibilities.
Thanks for the well wishes from my new blog friends Laurel, Denise and Lil Runner! This new blog following definitely adds to the excitement and is inspiring! eeeeeeeeeee 3 days!!!
