Running for two

Last year’s 15 miles vs this year. It’s a lot easier when you’re not carrying another human inside of you.

Another long run in the books. I’m so happy with how consistent my pace was. I even set a new (on this watch) half record! It’s actually my second fastest, and I wasn’t even pushing it. I’m really looking forward the the half in September!

The weather was perfect, but it was so humid, I was soaked. The waistband in my shorts was so wet, I kept having to pull them up towards the end of the run.

I ran with a new girl today. It was really nice running with someone who’s my pace. She’s running Chicago in October, so I’m only a week ahead of her in training. It’s nice knowing there’s someone to do my long runs with!

8 weeks down, 10 to go!

Be still my heart.

Be still my heart.

My love is back home. It was just three days, but I really missed him.

I keep getting advertisements for the Great Wall of china marathon. Everyone looks like they’re about to die! Why would anyone want to do this?

Some people move and spend their time setting up their house.

I go out and find new loops to run in the neighborhood.

Shes trying so hard.

My mizunos came in the mail this weekend. I took them out for a run today. Not sure how I like them. They felt weird on my toes, but after awhile I stopped noticing. When I stopped running though, the tops of my big toes were sore. Maybe after a few runs, it’ll stop?  I think they’ll just be for my shorter runs. I don’t think they’d do very well on a long run.

How we spend mornings at the new house.
