The Fairest Week In Review: 10/21

30 Rock boring

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. 😛

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
