Week in Review

74 miles
4 AFDs
18 hours with Coach G-Unit
599 pages of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
11 days until Nationals

Well, the countdown has commenced. We are t-minus 11 days until the NCAA Division II National Meet kicks off here in Charlotte, and I have to admit I'm pretty excited. Both of my workouts this week gave me a much-needed boost of confidence; now all that's left is putting on the finishing touches and then recovering like crazy until the races. Next weekend could turn into one of the longest and most exhausting weekends of my life, but I've got nothing to lose and no excuses for not putting everything out there.

Speaking of putting it all out there, I'll give credit where credit is due: props to Mike Decoste for rising to the occasion and shattering my 5k PR on Sunday. He better live it up for the next few weeks, because I'm already eyeing a few post-Nationals 5ks on the track where I can redeem myself. Until then, he's got my number.
