Week 26

What a week! 
Recovering from the marathon,  fishing with my parents, visiting family and friends, an awesome trip to Exit Glacier, back to work, sweltering heat, and a bee sting on my toe!
Lol.... it hasn't been boring, that's for sure!

Week 25 - Marathon week!

I did it.  Just barely, but I finished!
Miles 1-14 were good, I was on pace and feeling good.  The rocks were brutal on feet though, so miles 18 - 21 were ROUGH.  My Mom and Dad met me just after mile 21, my Mom walked with me to the end cheering the whole group to the finish line. 
It took WAY longer to finish than I though it would, but I FINISHED.
Next time will be better.  :)

Week 24

Monday I snuck in a pedicure,  Tuesday my massage and a book signing, and the rest of the week was spent studying - but I passed (!!!!) which somehow makes it all worth it.  :)
Next up: the marathon!
I can't believe that in less than a week I will have run my first marathon!

Week 23

This was the week of - pictures?  What pictures?
Home early from work two days, studying non stop, the test is in one week and I got a 39 on the practice exam!  Terrible!  
We ran errands (in the sinshine!) but I kept forgetting my phone at home.  :)  There were gym sessions and intence ab work outs, but no running to report - letting my poor toes heal this week!

Week 22 - last long run of marathon training!

I was trying for 23 miles this week, but I am going to just be happy with my 20.
It was hot, I was covered in pollen,  ran out of water at 16 miles, the sunburn after sweating off my sunscreen,  and the blisters on my poor toes! 
I am mad that 20 miles took so long, not because the running was hard, but because all of these other factors got in the way.
What else happened this week?  I have no idea, running has consumed my life.  :)
