The Fairest Week In Review: 10/21

JENN: So how was the whole running thing last week?

MOON: Pretty gooooood. A rather boring week, but things are steady. How goes the marathon prep?!

JENN: Okay. Since I somehow busted my hip last week, I walked most of my training - over 14 miles of it, in fact. But I did run a ten miler on Thursday and my hip was fine, so I think it'll be okay. This week is serious taper mode; the Marine Corps Marathon is THIS SUNDAY. I SAID THIS SUNDAY. I'm scared!

MOON: Don't be! You'll do just fine. :)

JENN: Ee, I hope so. I think I can do it? OR I COULD DIE. Not that that's any excuse.

MOON: Take your time and hope to the weather gods that it's not freezing. :P

JENN: Right now the forecast is a high of 69 and sunny with 9 mph winds. I think I'd be okay with that.

MOON: That's not too bad! What time does it start?

JENN: I wanna say 8AM? I'll be double/triple/quadruple/quintuple checking that over the course of the week, naturally.

MOON: Sweeeeeet, not too early.

JENN: I'll be texting you the whole time. CLEARLY.

MOON: Haha, I should be awake. I will try my best to keep you amused while running!

JENN: <3

  1. You will be so awesome at the Marine Corp Marathon that I've already started searching for a "Better off Ted" bit to appropriately describe your victory!

    ...of course I lack the tech savy-ness to ever post it, but you'll know it's out there for you!

    1. "You have GREAT calves. They're like granite covered in silk."

  2. You are going to toally ROCK this! And of course celebrate your glorious moment of victory with cupcakes which Nicole will have in abundance on her bike. If she doesn't eat them all first. Post pics!!!!
