Week 8 half marathon training has ended and it makes me realize that the event is only 4 weeks away. This makes me nervous. I know I can do it, I’ve done it before but it is just getting so close. Eeekk! This weekend totaled 15 miles in the books , 5 Saturday and 10 today. Lets discuss!
Saturday was a busy day, it started off absolutely devastating when this happened

Oh yes, I was almost brought to tears. I was off to do an open house and figured I would treat myself to a Skinny half pump mocha peppermint mocha and a Christmas Blend coffee. I placed the 2 drinks on my dash sat down and the fell all over me and the car. Sad face!! Devastated. So I went back in to Starbucks and they totally comp’d me new drinks and gave me cloths to clean up with! I love my Starbucks.

Then after the open house I ran , my scheduled 5 miles in 49 minutes, not too shabby. Of course I was #PoweredbyBits for this run.

Sunday is long run day and I swear I saw flurries this am, again I almost cried. No please don’t snow! So I got all geared up in my Under Armour cold gear , I really wish the running tights had a drawstring by the way UA! I ate my Bits, filled up my bottle with G2 and stashed a GU packet in my bra! We were off!

This run was not epic by any means! It started off decent but by mile 6 my hammies started to tighten up and I had to walk it off a bit! I ate my GU hoping to get a little more energy and finished off my G2. Still not pretty but I finished it, all 10 miles. See
