Well, I did my first "race / event" yesterday. I did the Race for a Cure 5K (3 miles for those non-runners or non-metric savvy.) I finished with my best 3 mile time since I started my training a month ago. So I felt really good about that. I saw Ryan and the boys twice during the run which was really nice. It was a neat feeling to be a participant in something again. Not quite the same as a good ole' soccer game but still fun.

So this morning I got up and did my long run of the week and did EIGHT (yes 8) miles. I'm still in shock actually. I don't know if I've ever run that far before. Ryan gave me a nice route to go and it was nice weather out at 5:30am on a Sunday. The paper wasn't even here when I left this morning. Good Lord, am I turning into a morning person....na...not yet anyway.

I've got to start thinking about getting things ready for our trip to CA. I've got to pack for 3 others and myself. We've just a few days left....Well I need to take some Advil and find some ice and get a crying baby....back to Mommying....
