What a Week!

The newly weds!

After months of planning the big day has come and gone! And what a day it was; perfect weather, a beautiful venue, a great family and unbelievable food and service. The day went off without a hitch and I think that was largely due to us not having everything planned down to the minute. There was some built in flexibility and casualness which helped to keep things moving but not at the expense of stressing everyone out.
Thanks again to everyone for coming and sharing the special day.

And now back to our regular scheduled programming……..
Obviously last week was a write off as far as any training. I ran home from work on Monday which is about 10 miles and then got in two other 10 k runs the rest of the week. At this point in the schedule I should be tapering anyway so it really won’t hurt me. However after the big build up to the wedding, I must admit my excitement for the race has waned. The next three weeks will be to work on getting my head in the right spot as well as to keep working the kinks out. Lately I have been getting a lot of strange cramping, in my feet, hamstrings and calves. It has been weird for sure, and with any luck, nothing that will have any impact on my race.
Enjoy the wedding pics and have a great day!
