Our little household doubled from two to four yesterday when Mr. Shrinking Knitter's cousin and son came in for our friend's funeral, which is today. By this afternoon it will be me and the dogs, as everyone, including Mr. SK, scatters to their various homes and jobs and lives.
I ran three miles in 31:23 yesterday, a nice, steady, manageable pace for me. It was supposed to be a rest day but I had to switch today and yesterday around because today? No time at all to do anything but get dressed up and pay my respects. The graveside service is this morning with a memorial service later this afternoon. I'm not sure I can stay dressed up that long. Heh.
Tomorrow may be my last run before the race on Saturday. I'm supposed to do another three-miler on Thursday, but that's when I'm leaving for Nashville. If I do it, it'll have to be very early in the morning. Mr. Shrinking Knitter's son – who has run four marathons and a couple of halfs – says I'll be fine skipping that last training run.
The race begins at 7 a.m. and around here the temperature is very comfortable for running then. That "10%" is the chance of precipitation. Whew! I won't have to stash dry shoes and socks somewhere along the route!
Sorry for another blah post ... life should settle back down for at least one day this week. Tomorrow.
