I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

Total Distance

8:16 AP in Sienna Ranch.  Nice little shakeout before the 10 hour drive tomorrow. I felt fat and sluggish at first but by the end of the run felt great.  Typical taper run(well, typical run really!).  I am ready as I will ever be.  My strategy is to go out real slow the first mile while this shin/knee thing warms up, then pick it up to freedom pace+holding back slightly, then pick it up to true freedom pace at the halfway mark, and then go to the well for the last 10k.  Hopefully I get a PR out of the deal but I do want to enjoy all the sights and sounds of my first big city marathon experience.
