Over the weekend we took it easy with the marathon only a week away. I did a couple loops at Flying J and felt really good. Except I completely tore my feet apart. I realized with only a week to the marathon I need knew shoes. My pure grits haven't broken in and anything over 8 miles is destroying my left foot and my cascadia's are a hare too small and my toes are getting super jammed on downhills. Lets hope the Pearl Izumi Trail M2s I just ordered are going to save the day!

Saturday is going to hard and its going to hurt, both physically and mentally. But I'm stronger now than I was a year ago, in both of these departments. The training is done all I can do now is take it easy this week, eat right and come Saturday do what I do best...RUN!
