Recap of the past couple weeks...

Two weekends ago I trekked out to the Kedron Road trail and did 6.3 miles by myself! I then realized that I can't do long runs by myself or I will not be self motivated! There was a lot of times where I just wanted to walk back to my car and throw in the towel.

This past weekend was the first time my friend Heather and I ran together. We left her house a little before 7 and drove to Radnor lake...we went down the "trail (road" and back. The path must have been washed away from the flood in the spring and it was rough. Heather's new garmin :) told us that down the road was only a little over a mile, so doing close to 8 was not going to be fun considering the conditions and we were definitley side tracked by all the wildlife...6 we got back in the car and headed to the river park trail off of concord road. We finished up our 7.5 miles..not the best time, since I can't even remember what it was but we had fun and pushed each other...mainly she kept pushing me but ya know....

Tonight, I did a 30 min run on the tredmill while watching my guilty pleasure: The Bachelor Pad.....

This week's schedule:

Tomorrow: 4:15-5:00 Spin Class
Wednesday: 30 min run
Thursday: easy walk
Friday: OFF
Saturday: 8.5 miles (don't know how I'm going to do this since my running buddy is leaving me for OHIO...BOO)
Sunday: OFF

Next post is to show off my new running goodies :)

It's been a long long time...

I promise to start writing more. :) Since the last time I posted, I've swam for exercise, Derek and I got road bikes for our 1st anniversary and have been road biking and we went on vacation to Charleston, SC and stayed on Folly Beach.

While on vacation I had the awesome privileged of running/walking on the beach in the mornings! I did 2.5 miles the first morning and the other times, I causally walked (sometimes at a fast pace) for about an hour or more each morning looking for sea shells!

Two days after we got back from Vacation, my husband Derek plays church league softball and during the game he and another friend collided and he broke his left arm (both bones) and had to have surgery two days after he broke it. He has plates and screws in his arm and developed Fracture Blisters. He starts physical therapy this coming week. I have also started a new school year this past Thursday and love my little first grade friends :)

This morning I did a 3 mile run and really loved it. It was hot but good. Not too much longer until the Women's half and I need to get my butt in gear for runs during the week. Please visit my other page for pictures from my vacation and anniversary:
