I Felt Like a Superhero Slicing Through the Air!

There’s nothing better than getting to come home from work a little bit early. Yesterday I had a work meeting at 2pm near my house that didn’t get out until 4pm, so I got to go home afterwards!! : )

I did a 3.5 mile run and it was BEAUTIFUL! There was a strong breeze along the water but I felt like a superhero slicing through the air! And guess what I saw? A banner for my half! It’s really almost here!

Fort lauderdale half marathon

Also as I was cruising along the beach a big TV at one of the outdoor restaurants was showing the Miami Heat pre-game show featuring the 2013 ring ceremony.

Last year Adam and I went to opening night to see the ring ceremony, I kind of feel like a bad fan for not going this year but we’ve had such a busy last few days.


Anyway, I felt really good tonight and I’m already looking forward to my 5 mile run tomorrow!

Do you think it’s the sign of a problem when you immediately look forward to your next run before you even take your shoes off from your previous run???

It’s also really weird to look at my running schedule and see that tomorrow’s 5 miles is my longest run this week. I wish it was at least 6 or 7 miles : ) My mid-week run is usually 6 miles so this is definitely a sign of the taper.

I am excited to be experiencing a new runner thing – even if it is one that most people dislike!

Do you love/hate the taper?

Do you watch any sports?Β I love football and basketball – Miami girl all the way!

How long are your mid-week runs?

    When I was a swimmer back in the day I used to LOVE taper. That feeling you are having…slicing through the air…is also a sign of a taper. I always felt great during tapers. I think they are designed to do just that. Then you are ready for the big event!

      That is great news! I actually am feeling kind of ready for the big event … kind of πŸ™‚ Definitely a few nerves!

    I love when I’m daydreaming about my next run in the middle of my current one! Best feeling ever. You’re so ready!

    I cannot wait till the 13.1 race! Maybe I will finally get to meet you at the race πŸ™‚

    I’m a big Miami Heat fan too!

      Go heat! I love the Dolphins but it’s nice to watch a game and feel there is a very good chance the Miami team is going to win πŸ™‚

      See you on Nov 10th!!!
