Countdown to My First 13.1 – Loading Up Begins!

When I started training, I read that carbo-loading the NIGHT BEFORE your race is ill advised because the “load” will weigh you down.  Instead, they said to up your intake, bit by bit, days before the race. I started last Friday.  I’m adding more protein as I eat more, and I’m eating fruits and veggies from all colors!  I think this is the healthiest I’ve ever eaten in my life!  HAHAHAHA!

My colorful lunch three days before my first marathon.

Today is also the last day that I can run before the race, so I ran an easy two-miles, but I was SO TEMPTED to do more.  I came *this* close, but then I remembered that you shouldn’t over train.  I think my body will thank me for it!

Are you running on Thanksgiving morning?  No?  Get out there!  Earn that dinner!  Happy running!
