MCM 2018/T-Minus 11: Tardy

At home 5:00 p.m. Dressed for the gym at 5:15. At the gym at…6:30.

No, really? Do tell.

I don’t think I’ll really be excited for the Marine Corps Marathon until I am actually at the starting corral on the morning of the run. It won’t hit me about what I’ve done until I’m on my approach to Ye Olde Fourteenth Street Bridge.

Until then, it’s one last full week of workouts, and one last “long” run. After the Sunday six miler, it’s light gym work Monday and Wednesday, then three milers on Tuesday and Thursday, then off the Friday and Saturday before MCM.

Just put some Icy Hot on my right thigh. Hope that gets better, I don’t need any kind of knocks before MCM.

A few things to do before the big day…roommates, get my bib number sent to my new email…

Oh, and I may have to just run with the shoes I’ve got now. The Aspics website didn’t have the shoes in my size, and no time to break in any new shoes.

Less than two weeks. Joy.

Song of the Day: “Kashmir”/Led Zeppelin. And “When the Levee Breaks” while we’re at it. Everybody knows Kashmir-duh!-but I first discovered “Levee” as a sample to the Beastie Boys’ “Rhymin’ and Stealin’.” Didn’t find out the real song until 1997, in a barracks with roommate David Winters in Iwakuni, Japan.

Currently listening to “Sheep” by Pink Floyd as I wrap up this blog…
