1.  Is it weird to get excited when your coach emails you dates of upcoming long runs?  So far I have 18 on 8/22; 20 on 9/5; 18 on 9/12; and 20 on 9/19.


Ha, it’s been a long time since I’ve done anything longer than 13.1 miles.  It must have been Spring 2014 when I was training for the Chicago Lakefront 50k.  Sigh, it’s been on my mind to do another one.  Maybe Spring 2016?  We’ll see.  Last Saturday’s run was supposed to be 14 but I managed 10.  I am scheduled for 13 tomorrow and I am sort of looking forward to it.  :=)

2.  Yesterday was my last day of summer school.  It was an interesting couple of weeks for me.  Let’s just say I have a deeper respect for special education teachers.  I thought my job was tough but now realize that my job is easier.

3.  On Monday I start my last class for my math endorsement.  It is Geometry and I am kind of worried because I HATE Geometry.  Plus, it will be intense since the class is for 10 days from 9am-12pm.  Oh well, I’d rather do this than go for 10 weeks on Wednesday from 5pm-8pm.

4. I told myself no more ProCompression socks but how cute are these?


Do you like wearing long compression socks?  Have you ever run a 50k?

  1. Wow, you are going to do two 20-milers? Your training plan is no joke. You’ll definitely be well-prepared come marathon day!

    Those compression socks are very cute!!! Do they get too warm in the summertime?

    • It is time to get serious with my training. I hope to finish under 5 years. I have’t noticed the socks warming me up more than usual. I usually wear them for runs over 10 miles.

  2. Cool, I didn’t know you have a coach now! Glad you are excited for your long runs. I’m having to really mentally rally for mine. It’s SO hot and humid! Ugh!

Thank you for your comment!
