This week I'm celebrating...
10K! I have my first 10K race- EVER- this Sunday and to prepare for it I set myself the challenge to run 6 miles- outside, without stopping to walk. Well, this past Tuesday I surpassed my goal and made it the full 6.2 miles! OUTSIDE, IN THE RAIN, NO LESS. And I didn't slow to walk ONCE. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with myself (in case you couldn't tell). It's the farthest I've ever run in a single clip and I was just so thrilled to prove to myself that I could do it. This morning, if all goes according to plan (like it didn't yesterday), I will do it again just to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that I can so when Sunday morning comes I can go and kick butt like I know I'm 100% capable of. Wish me luck!
An Unusually Temperate Summer August is normally my most hated month of the year in spite of my birthday towards the end of it. I hate the cicadas, I hate the humidity, I hate the way the days tend to just beat you down with their oppressive heat... not to mention that everyone except for me is on vacation *grumble, grumble* BUT, this year things have been unusually cool for this month. The oppressively hot days have been far fewer and further between and I couldn't be happier about that. Here's to cool summer nights and bearable summer days!
And now I turn to you fine folks to see what you're celebrating this week...
