As far as other, less exciting things of the day: it was supposed to be a cross-training day. I took a rest day instead. Two reasons - 1. I ended up having to work late and 2. I was sore and my right calf was a little tight. Can I tell you a secret? After the race yesterday, I turned to Ryan and said, "Crap, I'm tired after 13.1, how will I survive 26.2?" I had a moment of self-doubt. He smartly pointed out that I also ran almost a full minute per mile faster than my goal pace (and what I've been running for long runs recently) for the marathon. Oh yeah. Don't worry, I'm back on board with feeling good about it. And i just keep telling myself this:
Speaking of the marathon, it's exactly 2 months from today which is both exciting and nerve-wracking. Since it's on May 26, I can't help but feel like it's a good sign that I'm running 26.2 miles on the 26th of the month (also happens to be RunnerBro's bday). I like to think of silly things as good luck charms. Am I the only one who does this?
Finally, here are some things that also relate to running and marathon training that I know most of you can relate to:
ain't that the truth?!

And THIS is even more the truth. Seriously.
I'm off to go hang out with Ryan and Gizmo....possibly Nicholas Sparks, as I just go this book from the library today: Has anyone read it? Look, I know, I can't help but be a sucker for his romance/cheeseball novels.
Okay, share your thoughts:
-Do you apply significance to certain dates/numbers/rituals to use them as a 'good sign' or luck? If so, what?
-How did your Monday shape up? Did you run?
-Who watched Mad Men last night? Is anyone else still singing that French song that Megan sang?
-Love or Loathe: Nicholas Sparks?
