Soooo, Flooding is Expected During My Half Marathon
No running yesterday per my running coach. Instead I did the elliptical while watching New Girl and The Mindy Project. I felt very girly.
Today I get to do “around 5 miles” which means I will do 6 miles if my knee is feeling good!
It feels like FOREVER since I’ve done a long run, which I guess is the whole point of the taper… but it’s kind of annoying. Look at me sounding like a runner! : )
Weather forecast for half marathon day? Lots of rain and kind of warm.
I read an article in the local paper that says we could expect coastal flooding around 8:20am on Sunday. My running coach said she doubts they will cancel the half, but the flooding sure could make things interesting.
@eastcoastk do not even think that it will rain and we will be okay 🙂

I am going to try to take Lisa’s advice and forget about the rain for now. But really, first I need to decide how potential rain will impact my clothing situation.
Last time I wore capris in the rain I hated how heavy they got. That prompted me to buy my first pair of running shorts. But I really would prefer running 13.1 in capris to prevent any chafing situations.
Hmmmm…. what would you do?
On Monday I got my first BIG order for candles…. very exciting and also very exhausting. I was up Mon. night until past midnight making candles. The good thing is my house smells amazing!
Can I just tell you how much I love the Pumpkin Spice candle? It’s perfect for the fall… although burning it makes me kind of hungry for dessert foods! : )
I can’t believe how close I am to Half Marathon Day. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
