Marathon Countdown: Final Week

     The Vancouver Marathon is less than a week away! Last week for me was pretty hectic- and I think I found a job! I had an on-cite interview on Wednesday that required a presentation, which I was pretty nervous for but it went great. By Friday, the company gave me a verbal job offer. I haven't received a written offer yet, so we will see what happens.

     I did not run as much as I would of liked last week, but still managed to run on 4 days. I tend to be too lax on the last two weeks before I race with the excuse that I am "tapering."

     I am proud of myself for running yesterday though. Craig and I were gone most of the day for his grandpa's 80th Birthday! I was a tired when we got home around 7:00 last night and hadn't eaten. I forced myself to go out for a run, even if it was only for 30 minutes.

     It was a nice day, and I ended up enjoying running downtown.

     When I got home, Craig had made me dinner!: Chicken burgers and Sweet potato fries... yum.

     There is a chance I will start work this week. (yikes!) I am filling confident that I can pull everything off.

     I think the marathon will be difficult, but as long as I take it slow, I am strong enough to run those miles and make it to the finish line! Also, I am so excited to go to Vancouver!!
