Fall Weekend


Yesterday was my last long-ish run before the marathon next weekend. 

And oh, man, am I nervous for next weekend.

The run wasn’t exactly bad, it just wasn’t good.

Four miles in, I asked myself why I was so ready to throw in the towel.

Was I physically unwell? No.

Thirsty? No.

In pain? No.

The answer came back that I just felt kind of bored. 

So I definitely need to spend this week getting into “Eye of the Tiger” mentality and get my game face on.

While I was off running, Spouse took the kids to a parade yesterday in our hometown, celebrating the week-long binge drinking event known as Oktoberfest. 

The kids came home with mountains of candy and other assorted ephemera like stickers and Mardi Gras beads.

And cheese.

You read that right: cheese.

Some group was giving away cheese slices along the parade route, and after more than a day of no refrigeration at the bottom of a bag of candy, I made the executive decision that the slices would be 86’d to the trash.

Hopefully no one will freak out too much.
