7 days

By this time in 7 days I hope to be celebrating a stellar marathon finish with a margarita as big as my head and delicious El Mariachi food. :)

Sunday brought the last "long" run before race day. 12 miles used to hurt but now I find it very enjoyable. The plan was to wake early and head out the time I will be starting Chicago. You may know I'm all for plans but usually ignore them. Sleep, wonderful sleep, was calling my name as it tends to do. By the time I forced myself out of bed and out the door it was after 9 a.m. oh well. It was still nice and cool and the late start worked to my advantage as I missed two races happening along the path. Yea! My procrastination payed off :) Not much else to report on this mornings happenings. I'm a ball of emotions heading into the last few days before M-Day but I'm finding ways to distract myself which is good.

Now I'm off for a haircut. It's a big day for me since I haven't had one since about March. It's tough to find the time when your never home! I'm trying a new place so hopefully they can make this thick, unruly hair into something manageable. Most people tend to do hack jobs (seriously it's been bad more than good) so I hope that's not the case today! Plus I always lose about 1-2 lbs after they cut and thin this hot mess on my head :)

Sounds like the 12miles went well. So, when did that become "enjoyable"? Cause I'm still waiting for 3 to be enjoyable. Did that come with marathon training? Just curious. Let's see that new do!

I think the weather is looking great for Chicago. Good luck with your marathon (and the haircut will make you faster!! ;)

Good idea to get rid of the extra weight! Hope it's not a hack job!
Hang in there this week!

We've had really good luck with Mario Tricoci Hair Salon! Of course, we go to one in Vernon Hills :)

Make sure you don't sleep in next weekend! Hee hee. It is so exciting to hear your 12 milers are an enjoyable breeze now. Are you going to post your bib number so we can cheer for you if we're there?

The weather is looking great for Chicago so you should have a fun race. I think having a lb or two of hair chopped off can only add to your speediness in the race. Best of luck in keeping taper demons in check and early wishes for an awesome race next weekend!
