Today was only 14 miles but it rained off and on the whole time so that wasn't much fun. But again, Marcia was my walking buddy and kept my mind from wandering. My pace has remained pretty steady during the past few weeks but I will need to pick it up on race day. My fingers are crossed that the weather cooperates and the temperatures stay down. After all this winter training, the heat will get to me for sure! Only 26 days!!!

The Nike Women's Marathon last month in San Francisco was amazing! The whole team finished the race and it was amazing to see all of the TNT athletes. There were over 20,000 people in the race and over $18 million was raised! The TNT Pasta Party was incredible! Over 400 coaches and staff lined the "red carpet" to cheer for the more than 7800 athletes and their supporters. There were a lot of tears and smiles throughout the evening. It was really cold on race day but it was incredible. The last few miles were on the Great Highway which was the first time I've seen the "real" Pacific Ocean and not just a bay or sound. I don't know that I'd ever do the race myself...even though the medal is a Tiffany's Necklace...those hills are INSANE!!
