Elizabeth is dropping out

The solar panel installation is complete now. There are a couple of finishing touches left and then we need to get permits from the City of Scottsdale, APS and of course our home-owners’ association. We are almost there!

My friend Elizabeth had plans to run the Phoenix Marathon this Saturday to try and qualify for Boston. Unfortunately, she has a partially torn muscle near her hamstring and she is dropping out. This is the same race that I ran last year, had the race of my life and qualified for Boston. I feel bad for Elizabeth, but there will be other races. She is going to switch up the race to a half-marathon and give her bib to my other friend Erin. Erin is fast and expects to do the race under 1:44. That’s sub-8 speed!

I got on the spin bike today for an easy 45 minutes (13 miles) at The Village. It was crowded there for a change today! I will start eating a few carbs tomorrow and then load up on carbs on Thursday and Friday evenings for the half marathon on Saturday.

Tomorrow, Julie comes to town from Nashville. Stop the presses!!
