How did the 10 week LA Countdown sneak up on me so fast?! I've unfortunately been sick for the past 2 weeks and have been unable to break into my 2011 training routine yet - but watch out, I've got to start adding on the miles ASAP! Hopefully by tomorrow morning I'll be ready to strap on the new Brooks shoes and hit the ground running - or else I'm in trouble! The inevitability of the LA Marathon is sneaking up, let's just hope I don't get cold feet during my training program!
Something even better to look forward to is enjoying time with all my LA buddies! Not only are they great enough to cheer me on during the race, but I look forward to frequenting a few old haunts with them as well! Brunch at Louie with Miss Erica, drinks at Bottle Rock and dinner at Tender Greens with Alyx, hikes in Runyon Canyon with my Cousin Matt, and many more fun new memories with Kathleen, Ana and my hopefully my ol Beverly Hills Investment Company crew!
To keep me sane during my training, I actually signed up last minute for French refresher classes at the fi:af in Manhattan. It should hopefully a great mental outlet during my intense last minute training and busy work schedule! I can't wait til class starts on the 15th - it's been a while since I've been a student, it'll feel great to dust off the notebook and book bag... bonne chance!
