*confession* I take a nap post-every long run, just like I do after every half marathon... no nap this week so I think that put me in a little funk, because let's be honest, I never recover from missed naps. More on my recent bout of insomnia later.

Fri-Run 7 miles TM [71 mins], 30 mins yoga
Something that I have always had the luxury of enjoying is a plethora of races in Utah before a big race. Here in Ohio, not so much. There is only one race I can run before the Boston, and it is $35!! I have paid that much for half marathons, and I will NOT be caught paying that much for a 5k that will be over in less than 30 minutes. So that leaves me unraced before race day, which makes me a little nervous, but that is why I have started to throw fartleks into my running mix, but it's just not the same.
I have come a long way from my first half marathon back in 2009... I was not able to eat or drink right before, during or after a run. Aside from talking, doing anything else while running was just about impossible.
NOW I can eat an entire meal while running, drink upwards of an entire waterbottle within 30 minutes of running, push a stroller, sing a couple dozen primary/nursery songs, and feed a child in the stroller while running.
Pretty impressive, no?
