Marathon Monday

9/28: 3 Miles (as fast as I could go)
9/29: 3 Miles (as fast as I could go)
10/3: 8 Miles in 1 hr and 21 Minutes (average 10:08 per mile)

Let's just say that by Mile 7 my feet felt like they weighed 100 lbs each. I wasn't out of breath or tired at this point, my legs just wanted to give out on me. BUT I MADE IT TO 8 MILES (and not one step farther ha) AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS!!! (with a pretty good time too.. if I must say so myself)

Although, I'm not running as far as I would like to during the week, I have to say that "sprinting" the shorter distances is definitely helping my speed/time. Soo, I'm perfectly ok with that!!

O and P.S. Eleanor has signed up for the 5K. I am so proud of her. She and Sara Grace will be starting the Couch to 5K program today. She has never run a day in her life (like me), but as in shape as they both are, they will do just fine!!


Until next Monday, Happy Running!!

And don't forget, this half marathon has a purpose. Please help support the precious children at St. Jude by donating money through team "Tri Delta." You can donate online here: www.mystjudeheroes.org/calliepc
