Three Things Thursday – Taper Edition

1. ONE baby: I’m ecstatic to announce the birth of my newest niece! Hailey Patricia was born at 3:29PM yesterday and she’s as perfect and cute as they come. Hubs and I were able to stop by the hospital for a short visit last night and both Mommy and baby are doing great. I love being an Auntie! Congratulations to my brother- and sister-in-law!

2. TWO runs: I’ve been out for two easy runs this week, one with hubs on Monday and one with hubs and a couple of friends from my training group yesterday. These days “easy” pace seems to translate to goal marathon pace or slightly quicker – I know how it feels, I like how it feels and this makes me feel great about Sunday!

3. THREE more sleeps: Speaking of sleep, I’ve been maximizing mine this week by ensuring lights out by 10PM and setting the alarm 15 minutes later in the morning (so far, I’ve only been a few minutes late for work). I feel refreshed and energized – hopefully the trend will continue!

Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

Tomorrow… training recap & race goal(s)!
