100 Days

Today is 100 days til our next race, the Chilly Half. I'm so excited about this one. Providing I don't get injured (knock on wood!) there should be no doubt in my mind on race day that I can complete it. None of the uncertainty that I felt leading up to the Toronto Waterfront Half. Hopefully no nerves. And hopefully no snow storm!

Tonight was an easy 5K on the treadmill, but no run on the treadmill is ever easy for me. The minutes drag and I always seem to get an ache of some kind and/or a cramp. Ugh. Speedwork tomorrow will be tough, but I'll get through it...looking forward to outdoor runs on the weekend.

Hubby and I have decided to plan a big reward for ourselves after our last race (The Toronto Waterfront, Sept. 28) next year. We're heading south on a luxurious, all-inclusive vacation at the Sandals Bahamian or Sandals Grande Antigua. It will be a combination of celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary, both of our Birthdays, lots of hard work and races throughout the year as well as a reward for achieving our goal of home ownership and (hopefully) surviving the first 8 months. :) We're hoping to leave a day or two after the race. How nice would that be to spend our recovery week laying on the beach drinking daiquiris?!

And we'll be home just in time to start training for China.
