Feeling so incredibly loved!

Thank you for every single sweet comment -- they helped make my legs feel much better today, I'm sure, although it was comical even to me to try to walk first thing this morning.

I did NOT sleep well last night which surprised me. Legs couldn't get comfortable, and I have the mother of all chafing under each arm (it's been in the 40s today and I've been wearing a tank top as much as possible because chafing HURTS!). Oh well, I've been happy enough for 10 people. And I did wear my marathon shirt while out shopping and a couple of people noticed it. I came close to wearing my medal, but decided that crossed some sort of line and decided against it.

Turns out I have two years to enter Boston, and right now I'm thinking that I'd like to run it in April 2010. But for today, I'm not running at all.

I did, however, get a new fitness toy today. My 40' long rope from Art of Strength arrived. Once my underarm woes are behind me, I can't wait to play with it!

Finally, look what Tucker put on my mirror yesterday afternoon. Isn't this sweet? I think I'm gonna keep it for a while...

What a great thing to come home to. I'd have cried on the spot if my kid did that. And, hey, you've still got the post-run glow!

Congrats, that is so cute that he wrote that on the mirror!

I love that! Does it say: "You ate 26.2 miles for breakfast"? That's GREAT! And I love the way he has the little circle there where your reflection should be.

awww that is so awesome! What a cute and sweet thing to do!

Take care of that chaffing! Are you putting anything on it? Do NOT use body lotion, it makes it dry out and that makes it stiff and painful. I like neosporin or Vaseline. (CIM gave me the mother of all chaffing 2 years ago)

Your family is wonderful! Nah, I wouldn't think it weird to wear your medal! :) After all, you worked HARD for that medal!

Awww, your mirror gave me shivers. You do rock and how great to see such a loving expression of what a great role model you are!

Well I think the medal decision you took was right, just because it may have become an invitation for someone to steal it.

You can never be too sure in this world.

Take care and best wishes :-) :-).

It's normal to have restless legs the night after a race. The lactic acid builds up and makes for some uncomfortable sleeping!

Thank goodness it only lasts one night!!!
