Be sure to read the previous post before this one.
After reading my post, my friend, James, sent me the link below, from my previous post. (I had tried to do this, but I am technically challenged, and couldn't figure out how to save it, so that I could use it. For this post, I wanted to display it on my page, but again, I am CHALLENGED, and couldn't do it. Please be sure to check out the link. Hopefully, I did manage to do that right. If not, copy and paste the web address. :)

So this evening I headed to the track to run my last hard workout before Huntsville. In fact, it will be my last hard workout for 2011. (taking 2 weeks off, from running, after Rocket City). Tonight, was solo because my running partner had work/school stuff going on - can you believe she lets her work and grad school get in the way of our workout? ha ha After the 10 X 800 last wk, and with the race on Sat. tonight was a shorter, "just get the legs turning over" workout. 2 mile w/u, 8 X 400 at 1:47 avg. w/ 1 min recovery, then c/d to get 6 miles total for the day. Next I headed to Serenity Yoga - a nice way to end the evening.
As I was running the final 400, like an artist painting the final strokes on a beloved painting, my ARTISTIC I-pod pulls up the perfect message in a song ....
Beautiful Goodbye by Amanda Marshall.
This was the final 400 of the night, the final hard workout before Rocket City, and the final hard workout of 2010.
Goodbye to hard workouts, goodbye to fall marathon training, and goodbye to training for 2010.
yes...a Beautiful Goodbye
Once again I am reminded how lucky I am to be able to run, and run hard.
Tonight, I am thankful for my health and music - You are BEAUTIFUL!
ART IN MOTION - I LOVE THAT!
