"Toodeloo, Mutha F***aaa!"

NO! I am not quitting my blog - although I am sure there are some out there who wish I would (sorry mom & A) that is what I said to long runs after my 15 miler today. I usually do my long runs on Saturday's "wit my bitches," but with A training for the 10 miler and both kids having games fairly early on Saturday mornings, I wanted to avoid any conflicts and it was just easier to run today. Tomorrow I will do an easy 6 or 7 miles with "the ladies" to kick off taper.

I have to say that I really hate this time in training. Not taper - those last couple of workouts that just feel like hell. I know they kind of are supposed to, but I still hate it. Needless to say, my run today felt like hell, but actually was pretty good - splits were consistent and quick and legs weren't too tired until I stopped at home.

Two weeks from Sunday and the truth will be revealed. Pray for good marathon weather.
