Thanks for the good vibes and well wishes everyone! I'm going to be thinking of all of ya when I'm out there on Sunday.

I am looking forward to this weekend and doing the best I can come Sunday. I can see the conversation I'll have with my body already:

Ankle: I..don't...want....to....function.....
Me: You have to, because I'm running even if you throw a fit
Left Knee: Ankle, you really should listen to her...she'll tell you to fuck off. That's what she told me and Right knee!

Oh, my dear Lord..I have fully lost it. Can you tell I'm a combination of excited and suuuuper sleepy, so I'm a bit slap happy! Today is my Friday because I have tomorrow off. Let the fun weekend begin!!

Thanks for all the support and encouragement during this training cycle!

have a great race, Lisa!

Also, I wanted to let you know that Chicago Lakefront 50/50 (the 50 miler) is very much on my mind for 2013. I know, that is 2 yrs away, but you gotta have a little time to plan for a 50 miler, right? Maybe we can meet up then?

Enjoy your marathon experience Lisa. They are special events whether it's going for a huge PR or just trying to earn a finisher's medal. Go out there and show what you've got. Have fun!

Hey Lisa,

Hope your ankle is ok. If the ankle problem is chronicle, I suggest you do heel raise shown in the video. I used to hurt my ankle once awhile playing soccer, then totally eliminated it after this workout.

Not sure if this is for you, but just fyi, in my soccer warmup I also do a little jump, much like a rope jump without the rope. Very Happy

Lisa, I've destoyed both my ankles in the past. I've used a BAPS board to strengthen them. Here's a picture. I made one with wood and half a croquet ball because the cost to buy is ridiculous. But they are great, and one of the exercises where you balance on it while somebody else steps on the edge will help the ankle adapt for future times when you step on something and the ankle wants to roll but corrects itself before it does.
