Time to Sun and Sail

Yo people, this runner girl is heading out tomorrow bright and early. I don't know why I always do this, but my flight is at 6am, meaning that me and my big ball of crazy will need to be at the airport at 4am, meaning I am needing to be up at 3. So I'll go to bed early tonight and then stress out worrying that I won't wake up on time. SO I'll end up with a few hours of sleep.

BUT THEN.

THEN.

I will land in St. Maarten and join my dad and stepmom for some sun and sailing. I am making my dad go running with me. He'll run and he'll like it. I am hoping to get enough miles in to keep up the streak I had going this week. I'm going to do some swimming too obviously. I don't know what the sailors have planned for destinations, but I have lots of books with me and I'm looking forward to not being cold!

On the running front, yesterday I had 3 miles at marathon pace. I thought I was feeling just bad in general, but when I finished and checked my watched I clocked in at about 24 minutes, so 8minute miles. This is not going to be my race pace and so I'm going to have to slow that down. Today I had 6 miles and I went out to the lake front path. I love Chicagoans. When I went out to run it was 30 degrees out. Several people on the lakefront had shorts on and a few were just in shorts and t-shirts. I don't think it's warm enough for that yet, but as soon as it's not 10 degrees and the sun is actually out and shining, we are so ready for spring time that if it even looks like spring time we dress for it.

Alright, well I will try and blog while out having fun on the boat. Enjoy the end of February everyone!
