I didn't make it running on monday night. I was 33 degrees when I got home and I was a little afraid that the sidewalks might ice up. It was a nasty drive into work today so I didn't want to risk an injury. Thankfully I have been virtually injury free in my new running career (the gigantic blisters where really my fault - I can't blame the shoes). Tonight I figured out my garmin running computer and I posted my overall number for 2007 on the running website. *don't forget that I didn't start using the computer until late November*
I ran 41.44 miles in 11:24 hours and burned 4,609 calories.
I see that as an accomplishment - I was a 'couch to 5k' member at this time last year.
I have attached a photo of my little buddy Brandon. We got to ride the carousel at Zoolights this past December. Maybe he'll be my new running buddy in the New Year - or he can be my pace car (on his bike).
Maybe his mom and I can conquer the Yakima River Canyon Marathon together in April. OOOOh and get pedicures when we are done.
Off to bed - I have to make it through the rest of the week still and be ready for my 10 miles this weekend - or 6.2 and go with the running club to Chambers Creek in University Place - we'll have to see.
Run like you're having fun!
