I ran my last long run (8 miles) this morning and it felt GREAT! (besides the fact that I was freezing my little tail off..haha) For some reason I always get anxious and wake up earlier than I have to! I guess I'm just excited to run! If you said that would come out of MY MOUTH prior to about 3 months ago, I would have thought you were insane! I am so grateful for my running coach and good friend, Casey, for encouraging me to do this! I have fallen in love with running and can't WAIT to cross that finish line ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!!
