I haven't been able to blog in a while because I have been busy working all this past week! It has been a crazy week full of long evenings, so by the time 10 pm came around I was tired and did not feel like doing anything!
Anyways, last weekend I was supposed to do 8 miles. At that time I was not planning on running with anybody and was trying to figure out what my route would be and where I would run. I live in the country, so there is a lot of open roads, but a lot of them have dogs that come out on the road and are not very nice.
Brian and I decided to go see his family for his sisters birthday that weekend. So, I got to run with her on Sat, since she is training for a full marathon and I am training for a half marathon we ended up having to run the same mileage! We set out and did 6 miles and then came back to home base. We refueled at that point and then set out on our own for another 2 miles. It was so hard to get back started, because I had stopped running and did not want to run anymore. But, we did it and I finished my first 8 mile run!
After that, we had birthday fun to celebrate with Karen and her family. But I did crash for about 3 hours after I ran that 8 miles.
I just finished my other 8 mile run today. I was hoping that God would allow the cool weather to stay around all day and guess what.....HE DID!!! Thank you Lord for the cool wind and no humidity! I ran 8 miles with no problem and all by myself! I only have 5 more miles to go before I get to my half marathon goal!
