Day 4, Thursday, August 6th: 3 miles
Since I wasn’t super stressed about time this morning (and David was close by if I needed to call in case of an emergency!), I did a little exploring. I found a beautiful park close to our house! It will be nice to run over there for shorter runs!

Today was hardly a “rest” day since we had our wedding reception, but it was an unbelievably amazing day!! (More pictures to come in another blog post!)
Day 6, Saturday, August 8th: 9 miles
I knew I would be exhausted after the wedding reception, so Jamie was a real champ to take it easy on the pace! We saw some Sooner Football, and David and his sister made a wonderful SAG wagon!

Day 7, Sunday, August 9th: 6 miles (race pace)
I switched the days for my long run and my pace run thinking the extra day of rest would help . . . well, I was still exhausted from the wedding reception, so we started way late and race pace did not happen!
