Headed to Tampa!

Happy Friday!! And more importantly, happy National Margarita Day!! I cannot wait to get out of here and be in Tampa to have a couple margs with some good friends. (I need the salt for the race on Sunday!)

Brooke and I in Gainesville

I am excited for Sunday's half, but still a little nervous about my knee. I ran on the treadmill last night and had a little discomfort last night when I was running the 400s, but ran over 11 miles last week, no prob. Despite how much I don't like the treadmill, I have had some good workouts over the past few weeks. Getting out of the house and going to the gym forces me to run harder while I am really trying to work on pace. Last night my focus was on breathing at a medium pace and recovery after the 400s. As I learned at Leapfrog, that easy pace doesn't necessarily equate to a much slower pace. 

Now if I can put it all together on Sunday and run a smart race, I will be thrilled.  It is going to be a hot one, but I am ready. My biofreeze is packed and Brooke happens to be the best orthopedic PA on the east coast of Florida, so I should be good to go. 

Tampa, here we come!
