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!
