In 36 hours The Qualifier marathon begins!

I did well following my taper plan and my meal plan (except for drinking, basically, a full bottle of wine last night…it happens). I feel out of shape, achy, and bloated….oh and I just got my period. So that’s cool.

And the weather forcast is for 90 degrees.

So, bascially, a perfect replication of Boston.

EXCEPT, that I am really well rested, I will be travelling with some awesome friends, and this race begin 3 hours earlier in the morning than Boston did…so it should be cooler.

I am actually feeling pretty positive…

…But also shocked and concerned over how very sore I am from doing yoga yesterday…I have lost ALL my muscle tone in the last 6 months. So I think you can guess where my initial goals will lie once I get back from Michigan.

So there you have it, not a very meaningful blog post…but I felt like putting something down.

Let’s goooooo!

    • Thanks Eliza! You are so sweet! It was a rough time but I am thrilled with the result. En-route back home now, about 4 hrs to go. I will post a report tomorrow.

      The heat wasn’t bad until about mile 17 or so, but then it was as if someone blasted a furnace all of a sudden! 91 degrees at the finish!
