Monday Mario


The photo doesn't accurately capture the moment, but the other night Mario was rooting around for who knows what in Boyfriend's jacket sleeve. He had his face shoved up there for almost a whole minute.

Today I did my final long fun for CIM training. I finished off 22 miles at an average 10:15 pace with mile 21 @ 9:54 and mile 22 @ 9:28. I haven't quite decided what my goal pace for this race is going to be, but I know I'd like to sub 10:00 pace it. Miles 18-20 were really, really hard so I don't know where I dug to pick up the pace those last two miles. My theory is that the endorphins decided to finally kick in those last two miles. I have one more double-digit run on Wednesday, but other than that we're on the taper!

was there something yummy in his sleeve???

Great run lady!! I'd say you are ready to go!! Start the taper and rest for your race! It's CIM, correct?

I think some bunnies just like the feel of cloth over their face. I once had a rabbit that would stick her face in my sleeve or pocket if I sat on the floor, and would play with my floor-length bathrobe, passing back and forth over and over so it would brush her face.

Silly bunnies! I hope Mario found whatever he was looking for in that sleeve!

That's funny! Mario must have thought there were great treats hidden inside.

funny bunny, maybe he thought it was an entrance to a secret warren, one he wasn't sure he wanted to enter...

Maybe he was looking for the boyfriend's hand?

Digging deep is so rewarding. I'm sure you'll have a great race!
