YEAH FOR DECAFF!! You finished your 10K in style! You rule girlie!! Was that your first race? Was it harder then you thougt? It sounds like you did really well. You should be proud of yourself! I am PROUD OF YOU!!! Rachel- good for you for sticking with it! You did a great job on your run today- and worked successfully through the pain and awkwardness of your running. When I do something like that then I know that I am ready to do WHATEVER I HAVE TO to get through this half marathon! And so are you! Today was a rest ay for me, but I wanted to start the new thread. Also make an announcement: There are still 6 openings (8 if at least 2 are children under 12) for the WISHES Cruise for Monday evening January 10, 2005. If you are interested in doing this please let me know. If the boat is full- the cost will be $14.00/pperson. Let's make this the most dedicated training week yet!
