|Dinner in Union City, TN. Trisha, Sonya, Me, Erika and Pam.|
2. Back in April, I knew Missouri was a state that S would not want to go to with me. (Note: He is now quite interested in accompanying me to states #37-50.) Oh the irony, Pam's St. Louis Cardinals are in the playoffs and just may be throwing that gosh darn baseball this Saturday night. Who knew? I know S would have loved to see another playoff game during a race weekend, but unlike last year when we watched the Red Sox play, it isn't meant to be this year.
|Last October. I admit, I didn't mind S hijacking my race weekend and turning it into his big chance to visit Fenway Park.|
Oh, and that pesky little race is happening too. I'm in a totally different space, mentally, emotionally and physically than I was back in April. I'm glad this is a "big" half, with a huge expo and lots of runners. I haven't got a ton of miles in my training the last few weeks, but I did build up my long runs on the weekends effectively. No PR plans, no run fast plans either.
I'm going to enjoy the weekend, hopefully go up in the Gateway Arch and do other touristy things. Look out state #36, I'm coming for ya!
