Does the Blog World feel kind of empty to anyone else? Is it just summer?
This morning, I ran my 12 miles...in 1 hour and 42 minutes...and then I just kept going. Hello, 13 miles!
I JUST DID A HALF MARATHON! Oops, I was supposed to do that next week. Well, I'll do it again. :)
I'm very happy about it. I'm also really delighted with Michael's support; this morning, Ender suddenly woke up at 6:30, which woke up Scarlett, just because he didn't have the big panels of cardboard in his windows to block out the light. I panicked that my chance to run in the morning was ruined, but Michael assured me it would be fine if I went. The kids did go back to sleep once it was dark in their room again.
After, Michael treated me to a heavenly-deluxe massage, and I did my hair and makeup nice. I stretched nicely, too. And I drank a lot of water. So I feel really good. The only two problems post-1/2marathon: my right toenail is a tiny bit sore (ugh...I'd better not lose it like I did the two times I hiked downhill and both big-toe nails were killed), and I am insatiably hungry.
It's a day of great accomplishment! Michael reached a milestone in his weight loss goal (I'm soooo proud of him), and I ran a half marathon at a pushing pace!
