Weekly Roundup - December 29th

It's hard to believe it's the last full week of 2013.  It seems like just yesterday we were preparing for last year's marathon weekend and thinking about 2013 goals.  I guess it's time to think about goals for next year!
As you know, we finished our final big runs in preparation for Dopey Challenge last Sunday and we are in full on taper mode!  I would be lying if I didn't tell you I was a little excited about it.  I'm pretty tired from the intense training and holiday chaos.  I feel like I could sleep for days!

  3. I agree, this year has gone by so fast. I can't believe marathon weekend will be here soon! Sadly neither of us are going this year. You gals sure did train hard this year! Good luck!

    I can't decide if I'm sad that I'm missing Dopey or relieved! I can't wait to read all about your experience!

    1. Jamie this will be a one and done. Training at Christmastime is really hard and the longest runs are in December. I won't miss any of that in 2014!
