So, If you are from Oklahoma, like me and you have not done the Talamena drive. You simply have to do it. It is a scenic byway from Talihina Oklahoma to Mena Arkansas and it is absolutely gorgeous. Larry and I went to the wedding of our good friends Emma and Zane this weekend. We took a round about way and took this byway. It was well worth the extra 7 hours in the car. I won't bore with all the details of the weekend but we saw a lot of leaves, celebrated a wonderful marriage between two awesome folks, and generally had a great time.
And now on to real business. One week to the marathon and I am pumped!! carb loading and tapering make for a very pleasant week. Ended with and extra day off to recover what could possible go wrong!!
