Somehow I thought I was tapering last week, but ended up running 57 miles. This week is going to be withdrawal as I will be running 20 or so since I have the half on Sunday.I will also be biking very little...see a pattern here, really trying to put myself into the best position to PR (or not allow any possible excuses if I crash and burn).
Good thing I did not run as little as I though I was, since we had our annual chocolate fondue party at our good friends Charlie and Sonia's house. All kinds of chocolate for dinner, yes, yes, yeeeeees!!! I secretly look forward to this gathering the entire year. I think it is amazing that C & S allow us all to come over with our kiddies (2-8 y olds) even though they don't have any, feed us french chocolates and champagne, and clean up the mess made by the kids. This was the first year the kiddies "got along" - my rule is always noone is crying, lets not interfere - and had a blast. There may have been some cat terrorizing going on, but maybe the noise was coming from one of the kids...who cares, us adults were all high on chocolate and champagne.
I dressed up for the occasion. These pictures were taken before we left, and are very bad, bc someone (ahem, Chris) can't keep the i-phone strait when taking pictures. Anyhow, since I NEVER wear a dress, I figure I might as well document the occasion.
Love this picture - not sure if you can see that as I "pose", Petru sticks his tongue out! And in the other picture, he is trying to "escape".
And how do you like the "signs" on the wall? I managed to remove about 50% of them, but there are still some that Petru refuses to give up...and I learnt to pick my battles.
Hope you all had a great weekend! And tomorrow, eat all the chocolate you can! I started on Saturday so you'll never catch up to me:)
