Let the celebration begin! Well, almost. We are down to ONE WEEK... a week!!! Yay. Today Lianne and I ran our very last run together at Lake Baldwin. It was an easy 5.2 mile run, much better than 13 last weekend. I was exhausted after the run last week. I came home, grabbed some eggs and turkey bacon to help my body recover, and took a nap (well, pretty much hibernated) for about 4 hours. Today, thankfully was much less intense. Because our race is so close we are taking it easy this week to allow our body to rest and be at it's best on race day. This challenge has been so intense. It has taken a lot of time and dedication, but it's nice to see the end result. Most of the time the "means" to the end isn't all that fantastic, but the end is amazing. I'm ready to get this race going! Here are some pictures of our run today. It was 47 degrees and raining (drizzling I guess). Definitely not the most pleasant conditions for a run, but we weathered them bravely :)

Here is our "Before" run picture at Lake Baldwin. I look like a giant!

And our "After" picture. We are thrilled at all the progress we have made in the last 4 months!!
