15 days

15 days until boston.
10 till i get on the plane to get there.
it has been a rough go this time around.  i didnt do everything i was supposed to do.  i dont think i went farther than 14 miles all at once. supposed to have done a 16, 18 and 20 miler.  whoops.  im really mad at myself for flaking out on training like i should have. but, at the same time im feeling ok about it.  i mean, i did it all last year and since I didnt get to finish in 2013 then the training just carries over right?  not really.

i ran 10 miles today like i was supposed to.  a hilly run that was new to me. red did ten yesterday and he told me where to go.  i had used that route before but never gone so far on it.  i didnt even realize it went that far! it was gorgeous.  perfect weather, not too many cyclists-or really that many people at all.  which i like because i tend to say good morning to everyone (except the cyclists) and when they just look at me like huh? i get all irritated. so im even more looking forward to the hundreds of thousands of bostonians who will be there to cheer me on in 15 days.

but the hills.  man they were tough.  really good for me, but so hard. but goose deserves it.  all the girls do.

our team has surpassed last years fundraising total and we are currently at $132, 288! Red and I have over 11,500! that is one thing that has stayed true from last year-the overwhelming support and love we have felt from friends, family and beyond.  im so excited to finish this thing.  two years in the making...and I will finish it! in just 15 days.
