Weekly Roundup: January 5th

This was our final week of taper before heading to Florida and the Walt Disney World marathon weekend.  Organizing and packing for a race week that includes 4 races has been challenging.  Thankfully, Christine put together a list and I am just copying her and filling bags with all my necessities for each race.  You can read her post here in case you missed it. Now we wait for Tuesday (me) and Wednesday (Christine) to fly to Orlando.  We have our fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate and there will be no flight delays for any runners flying in for race weekend.  Hope to see you there in just a few days!

My new Birthday and Christmas luggage!
Our workouts and runs seemed easy compared to the weeks we put in just before Christmas. My running days got switched around this week due to a very bad rainstorm. My Thursday group practice was  rescheduled for Friday morning and despite the cold and wind, it was far better than running in a monsoon!  Other than some cold temperatures, everything went according to plan.  We are both super excited about our upcoming trip!
