The run that almost did not happen. 4 miles at dusk is better than 0 miles.  I had planned to run right after work today.  Instead there was a huge flood right as I was about to change into my running clothes. Thankfully I made it home safe and got some miles in.  Less than 4 weeks to marathon 19!

Celebrating 8 Years of Running - Photos from my first half marathon. Long Beach October 2006.  First photo is of me, Emily, and Dorothy at the start.  Emily only ran one season with us. Dorothy and I are still good friends to this day.  She is the one who took me to Vegas a few weeks ago.  Second photo is me crossing the finish line.  At that point, I did not have a garmin so I am looking down at my stop watch.  I remember the whole thing like is was yesterday.  Isn’t that the case for your first race?  I ran with that huge pack for many years.

I plan to post photos from every race for the next week or so.  I am going to have to do some digging on old laptops.

5.33 miles of struggle

Running in the heat after weeks and weeks of illness felt as painful as it sounds. The good news is that I ran today. Not the long mileage I had planned but better than sitting on the couch. Alarm is set for early morning long mileage tomorrow. Let’s see how it goes.

Day off from work and running in the heat.  Not the smartest move I have ever made but need to get some miles on these legs.  The plan is slow and easy miles. See you on the other side!

4 weeks until marathon 19!
