The Fairest Week In Review: 1/14

JENN: Hooray for everyone who ran over the WDW marathon weekend! That having been said - we leave for Disneyland and the Tinker Bell Half on FRIDAY! IT'S SO CLOSE.

It. Is. TIME.

MOON: Wait. Not THIS Friday?!

JENN: THIS Friday!

MOON: ... I seriously thought it was NEXT Friday.

JENN: The race is on Sunday, silly!

MOON: I could have sworn the race was the 26th...

JENN: Nee-ope!

MOON: Well, there goes my schedule for next week! Ha, I'll have to send out some emails tonight. My bad.

JENN: Aren't you glad we're doing this blog?

MOON: I better get my running on. My last 13.1 was Christmas Eve. Slightly worried now. Guess who's running 13.1 tomorrow?

JENN: No no no! Tapering is vital!

MOON: I am too anxious for tapering!

JENN: I wouldn't run more than seven at this point. Don't worry; I haven't run the full 13 since December either. In fact, my runs have been AWFUL lately. I'm in a major slump.

MOON: I'm sorry, but that IS slightly comforting. ;)

JENN: I'm seriously considering just taking very lengthy walks this week in the hopes of recharging.

MOON: That might be good. I thought about that too. But don't worry, I'll be there to keep you going! :D

JENN: Of course!

MOON: Actually, I've just been doing shorter, faster runs.

JENN: That's great for speed!

MOON: So far so good. But the weather is KILLING me. I really want to run outside. I almost dozed off on the treadmill the other day.

JENN: Oh no! Yeah, the extreme cold plays merry hell with my lungs. I honestly wonder if that's related to the yuckiness of my training lately, even if I am doing it inside.

MOON: Winter malaise... My nemesis.

JENN: Well, we'll get some good strong California sun soon! Maybe we can do a mini-run on Friday, just a couple miles.

MOON: Sure, sounds like fun!

JENN: Got any good music powering you through the last couple pre-race weeks?

MOON: Wild Beasts have a new single out! That's all I have going on right now. I plan to put Beethoven's 9th on the playlist come Wednesday.

JENN: Beethoven's 9th is pretty magnificent. Speaking of magnificence - on to the roundup!
