|So fortunate to have this nice track in St. Bernard, LA|
My husband and I raffled a guided fishing trip and we raised $4300.00 for St. Jude. This is what this race is about for me. Dufrene's Guide Service - check it out if you like to fish.
Yesterday, and today, I ran my final, 2 runs in 24 hours, 8 mile and long run combo. This is a new experiment for me. I enjoy trying different training plans, different ideas, different workouts, etc. This time, starting with my 18 miler, then for my 20, 22, and now my final 16 mile run, I've ran 8 miles before the long run, in roughly a 24-26 hour period of time. I'm thinking, and hoping, this will add some strength, and maybe some strength in the final miles of the race.
|Friday lunch time run - 76 degrees with a cold front on the way for my Sat. run.|

Now it's taper time for me. I ended this week with 38.5 miles. This next week I will run 25-31 miles.
All I need now is some COLD, no wind, no ice, no rain weather in Memphis, TN on Dec. 3rd. I'm ready ! I'm excited !
