Race week

Oh my gosh – I can’t wait to visit Canal Park and see the Aerial Lift Bridge with my own two eyes on Friday, then again on Saturday when I’m running toward the finish line. I’m so excited to spend time in Northern Minnesota this weekend at Grandma’s Marathon.

Training note:

My wife and I moved to a new apartment yesterday. I’ve spent a lot of time on my feet the last three days. This week, I’m basically just taking it as easy as possible. I’ll do a few short runs to stay fresh, with absolutely no focus on mileage – just getting plenty of sleep, hydrating and getting mentally prepared for the race this weekend.
