Wiped Out

I'm totally wiped out. This week hasn't been any more grueling than others necessarily. Running sure hasn't been since I've got only eight miles and change this week. But I just feel mentally exhausted. I think it may be the last couple of weeks catching up to me.

So, I'm just going to offer this as a post. I know, not great but at least it's something.

This weekend will be a busy one as well, with my race coming up. The bad thing is, is that I probably won't get home until after midnight on Saturday, so I'm going to have about five hours of sleep, maybe six if I'm lucky, before the race. It's fine, though, since I usually do my best when I get little sleep.

Of course that means getting a full night's sleep on Friday night. Good luck on that one.

I do want to give a shout out to all of my blog buddies running the Boston Marathon on Monday, and everyone who is accomplishing their dreams. Boston is the holy grail of marathons but it's one that I won't ever race in. That's more than okay with me. So, good luck runners!

I probably won't be running on Monday as I'll be recovering from my own race.

Now I'm off to try and mentally decompress.

Maybe there's something (mentally) contagious going around. I haven't written a new post in 10 days. I've got plenty of ideas, I just can't seem to turn them into cohesive posts. I'm blaming mental exhaustion (not that I've been taxing my brain much).

Good luck on your race!!
