So you didn’t hear from us for a while after our juice experiment because it actually made both of us pretty sick. Well, not that sick, but we felt extremely out of it all day. Mainly because there is nothing in it but fruit, yes this is obvious, but it definitely lacks the protein and fullness that I need to not feel empty. We both snacked the entire rest of the day and confirmed that if we attempted to be RAW foodies for one day we would die and our company would need to find 2 new receptionists… considering we already do the jobs of about 6 people, this would be an impossible task.
You can tell I’m trying to distract myself from the fact the race is on SUNDAY. We are both anxious/terrified/excited/nervous and basically just looking forward for it to be over. We’ve been training for a really long time and just want to be crossing the finish line and rewarding ourselves with a huge lunch and our long awaited running hiatus.
I planned to do a long run around Nolan’s neighborhood on Saturday morning; we had mapped out a 7 mile route the night before. After completed the run (which was 99% uphill) in less than 50 minutes I realized either I had suddenly become superhuman or our mapping skills were not as accurate as expected. It turns out it was the latter, which makes me feel both good and bad. The rest of the week will be spent on shorter runs just to keep our endurance up. Joanna and I had planned to run together tonight, but with both weather and scheduling conflicts we’ve had to reschedule for what is probably the 10th time.
The weather for Sunday looks great (thanks to Nolan’s recent weather update). Let’s cross our fingers that his weather predicting skills are slightly better than his mapping skills 🙂
