Running update...

88 days until Grandma's...

Let's see...I'm on a two-day running streak. lol. But I'm actually ahead of the game for the week. Yesterday was supposed to be an off day (but I ran Monday b/c I took of Easter when I wasn't supposed to do it). Monday was a good two miles. I ran the second whole mile in 8:57 minutes. Training to do all 13.1 miles with a 9 min/mile pace is a pretty big goal. I'm hoping that as I continue to get in better shape, I'll be able to maintain more than just a mile at that pace...right now I'm not there yet. Today I did three miles...did about a 10 min/mile pace. On Thursday, I have the longest one to date -- 4 miles. Let's hope I can get it all done!

Yeah, this photo is obviously not from today (our ground is still snow-covered, it's way too cold to run in short sleeves and shorts, and my hair is currently too short for a ponytail.) It's from 2006, just before Grandma's that year. I just wanted to post a photo, and in this one I just look so happy to be running. outside. warm.


  1. I took that picture! Thanks for taking such good care of me;)

  2. I saw the pic first and was wondering how in the heck you were running in shorts and a tshirt..lol...it's supposed to be in the mid 70s here today..shorts and tshirt weather...so when are you moving?!? :)

  3. Maybe if it keeps snowing through April.

    lol. We're supposed to get 4-6 more inches tomorrow. Grrr.


What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear.
