...you haven't posted in a while and when you finally do, it is about your brother and his health, and your readers come out in full force to support and let you know they will say a little prayer for someone they don't even know. It's pretty cool. Runners are cool. Runners are so dag-gum supportive no matter what. I am so glad I can call myself a runner. We rock. ;)
So a little catch up on my training. I ran my last 20 miler till the marathon on Saturday. It was the perfect day for a long run too. When I left the house, it was in the 30's. I bundled up and headed out the door. I ran 7 and then came home to get my kids dressed and fix their hair. The hospital was putting on an Easter egg hunt and since the hubs is the CFO, he wanted to support and take the kids. I Kind of wanted them to look cute, so I stopped home for a min and did my thing. I changed my shirt into something a bit cooler cause it was warming up quickly to be in the 50's. In fact I got my first sun burn of the season while running. I didn't think I would need sunscreen when I left the house, but I ended up with a watch line and everything. It was a tad windy, but I wont complain.
I ran 6 miles this morning and it was CHILLY and WINDY. Oh well.... it felt good to be out there. I ran 5 miles and then stopped home to get Nellie the Dog and take her for a mile. She is doing so well. She is back to her normal happy self and now I am slowly getting her to run with me. She went a mile with me today and she did so well. She stopped once to go #2, but she stayed right with me and loved it. I think she had a little bit of a runners high after. She was one happy dog.
The marathon (Kentucky Derby Marathon) is in 16 days. YAY for me... I love taper time.
