Saturday morning we met up with the Team for our second and final taper "long" run. I didn't hear my alarm go off so I had to race downtown since my roommates had already left me. I made it just in time and decided to run my frustration out by upping my pace a bit for the hour-long run. I ran most of it with a couple of the coaches which was fun, and we ended up getting in a little over 6 miles. It was a gorgeous day, if a little warm, and the excitement was all a buzz for the race the following weekend.

Nom nom nom.
Wednesday was my last day of work at the deli which was a little bittersweet. I'll miss our amazing sandwiches! That evening I got in my last run for the week with a short 5k around the west campus lagoon, averaging 9:17/mi. I didn't want to push it but my legs felt good so I just let my body dictate the pace. Instead of going out that night to celebrate my roommates 21st birthday at midnight, I had to stay in and finish my final English paper, which didn't happen til 3:30am!
Thursday was Jordan's actual 21st (finally - she skipped a grade so she's a year younger) and I had promised her I would go downtown with her. In the year and a half that I've been legal, I have only gone "DT" as we call it once - I'm just not a fan of it, plus I don't really drink much. But I'm not one to back out of a promise so after trying on literally everything in my closet, I got ready and headed to a friends house to meet up with everyone. After a drink or two we all made our way downtown via party bus and went from one club to the next. With a marathon in a few days I wasn't about to get shwasty, so I limited myself to one drink followed by a glass of water. Like I said before, downtown just isn't really my thing and I was pretty tired, so by 11pm I was counting down the time til everyone was ready to go. Finally at 1am we all piled into a taxi and made our way home where I happily collapsed into bed : )
