Josh left at 5 o'clock this morning to head to Colorado to run with Dean Karnazes in the Transrockies Run thanks to Gore-tex! We are both still amazed he is really going and I hope that this weekend is full of fun, adventure, excitement and awesomeness for Josh.
Also in the REALLY EXCITING NEWS DEPARTMENT, I was interviewed by Runner's World Magazine yesterday!!! Apparently after tweeting back and forth about my awesome Yasso 800's, Bart Yasso checked out my blog and then sent my info to one of his columnists for consideration. She emailed me right away and then called for the interview yesterday!! Things still need approval by editors, but there is a good chance I will be in the "What it Takes" column of the January issue of Runner's World. It sounds like the angle will be that I am a mom of 12 running the Goofy Challenge at Disney (half marathon on Saturday, full marathon on Sunday).
I am a big fan of Bart's (just finished his book My Life on the Run and loved it!) and I read every issue of Runner's World cover to cover. I was interviewed by Runner's World Magazine! How crazy cool is THAT?
I am taking a rest day today, which means I will be fighting the urge to be cranky. All day. WHY IS IT that I can get up at 4:30am, run 8, 10 or 20 miles, and come home and feel great for the rest of the day and have tons of energy, BUT, if I sleep in until 7am and don't run, I have a slight headache and feel cranky and tired all day??? This happens every single rest day I take. Bleck. But I am tapering and trying to treat my body right, so I am taking the rest day. Tomorrow is 16 miles. Yay!
And one last exciting thing - two weeks from right now I will be in the middle of the Pocatello Marathon! Hopefully burning it up at a 7:50 pace and feeling strong. Can't wait!
Have a great weekend everybody! I will share updates on Josh's experience with Dean and the Transrockies run here and on Twitter (if you want to follow me on Twitter there is a little button on the right hand side of this blog page you can click, or you can look me up on Twitter... I am @seemomrunfar).
