I'm also grateful to be ending this year on a high note, with regards to running and fitness. Instead of recovering from a fall marathon and dialing down my mileage, I'm gearing up for my final race of the year. Next weekend, I'm traveling to Florida to run the Panama City Beach half marathon with a few of my fellow bloggers. Without all the miles I've normally run by this time of year, my legs feel fresh and young. This week was the best running week I've had all this year. I'm hoping to ride that wave (pun intended!) all the way to the finish line of this waterfront race!
After crushing my 10 miler last weekend, I promised myself I'd take it easy. But riding that post-long run high, my legs just wanted to go. Looking down at my Garmin during my runs has made me smile. With the lightness I've been feeling in my stride, my PF continues to be a whisper and that Baker's cyst is behaving. Right now, the only unknown is the weather. If it's warm on race day, I'll have to adjust my goals. As of today, all my weather apps are in agreement that the conditions look to be ideal for the race. Stay tuned.

How was your week? Any end of the year races for you? Do the heat and humidity mess with you?
