I had a really good run yesterday. It was important to me to have another good, shorter solo run this week, because as I mentioned, I felt like they were not getting any easier. My TNT coach diagnosed the problem, but I don't want my weekday runs to be harder than my weekend +8 mile runs. That's backwards.

I picked out a hilly loop near my house and took off. It was not too cold (unlike Wednesday, when I finally resorted to running indoors at the gym [and regretted it]). Thanks to some pent up frustration in my mind, I did great. I'd say yesterday was the first time I've ever really used running as a way to release emotion and what's on my mind. I liked it!

A few of you have been asking what the running goals are for now until race time, so here's what I have left:

Week Of:
Feb. 10-16: 6
Feb. 17-23: 4, 5, 9.5
Feb. 24-Mar. 1: 4, 5, 3.5, 6
Mar. 2-8: 4, 5, 10.5
Mar. 9-15: 3.5, 5, 4, 6
Mar. 16-22: 4, 5, 11.5
Mar. 23-29: 3.5, 5, 4, 6
Mar. 30-Apr. 5-3.5, 4, 12.5 (basically a half marathon if anyone wants to come cheer for me)
Apr. 6-12: 2, 5, 3, 6
Apr. 13-19: 4, 5, 6
Apr. 20-26: 4, 3.... 13.1! (yikes!)

You know what's weird? After running 8.2, those don't seem as scary anymore. This junk is more mental than physical, I'm telling you.

One more thing: on March 3, I have to give TNT my credit card number to vouch that by mid-April I will meet my fund-raising minimum or pay the difference. My goal is an even $2k but my minimum is $1800. While I am so proud to say that I have raised $1475 so far--due largely to y'alls generosity--I am $325 away from my minimum and $525 away from my goal. If you can help me meet it, I'd be grateful!
