This Week

TGIF! It's Friday afternoon and I can hardly believe that I survived the week. The week started off with hours spent at the County courthouse for Jury Duty. Yes, JURY DUTY. It makes me irrationally angry that because someone else decided to commit a crime, others have to be inconvenienced by sitting in a basement rooms for hours on end when that time could be used for more productive things.

I was off schedule, working evenings the rest of the week to attend some international meetings. It threw me off - my sleep schedule, eating patterns, etc. I would come home at 10 pm absolutely starving. I hate eating that late.

So it was no surprise that the miles I ran this week were all pretty crappy. Probably not a good thing considering that I'm running a race tomorrow...yep, another half-marathon. Needless to say I am not feeling it. Sadly, I have a definite lack of excitement for this race versus how excited I was for SFM. I'm sure this will change tomorrow come race day - at least I hope so.

To try and drum up some excitement, I quickly threw together a playlist. It's pretty similar to my SFM playlist with a few new additions.

Tomorrow's race is the SF Giants Race, as in my team.

It starts at AT&T Park and runs down the Embarcadero to Crissy Field and back. With the exception of the Fort Mason Hill, it's a flat course, so as Audrey said, "I'm hoping that I saved all my mojo for race day." Ha! I'm also hoping for cool weather and that race organizers don't run out of shirts and Tim Lincecum bobble heads for half marathoners

My motivation will be a big bowl of chocolate salt ice cream waiting for me at the Public House post race.

Here goes nothing!
