It's starting to feel real!

I completed my final long training run tonight! Only 3 weeks left until race day!!! My pace has slowed a little but I'm still feeling confident that I will be able to complete the race in my goal time of less than 2 hours.


In the interest of full disclosure, I got completely lost in DC and had to have my roommate come pick me up outside the Jefferson Memorial where I finished my run. Huge thanks to my sweet roomie, Danielle, for driving around for 45 minutes being thwarted by road closures (no thanks government shutdown) to get me!

Rain Training

Sometimes, you just need to embrace the rain and dance...or run in our case! My gal pal Salina and I went for a 7 mile run in the rain last night...DC looks pretty good wet. We felt a little rebellious skirting the "Closed Due to Government Shutdown" signs to get close to the monuments!
