I am feeling exhausted tonight, so this will be short & sweet.

Mileage this week: 30.1 for a grand total of 635.96! It had been my intention to run at least 10 miles today, but decided to call it quits after 7. It felt like I was running in concrete. No sense in pushing too hard and hurting myself this close to the half-marathon.


Today was the 2nd Annual Sunshine 5K & Kids Dash. I didn't run this year, but rather took photos for my friend who is the organizer. The $$ goes to an organization that buys supplies for orphanages in Russia (& a few other countries). Great cause, beautiful day. Sam & Emily ran it & seemed to have a good time:

Off to watch some "Tangled" before bed. Sami has another game tomorrow so we'll be at the field most of the afternoon. Hope tomorrow's weather is as nice as today's!
Until next time,

What a great week!

Mileage this week: 20.27 which officially puts me over the 600 mark for a grand total of 605.86 & 3 months left to go! When I first set this goal, I had real concerns that I would not reach it. I had no idea that I could surpass it!


Today, I went to Hocking Peaks Adventures to do their Zipline course with aerial obstacles. It was so much fun! It was hard - some of those obstacles were tough & some were a little scary! At the end, I felt like I had really accomplished something big.
Here are a couple photos:

This pic is really blurry, but the only one I have of the zipping.

I don't know if I could have picked a hotter or more humid day. By the time I was done, my clothes were soaking wet. I'm pretty sure I have ever sweat that much in my life - even during a long run!

Afterwards, Sam & Emily put on a bit of a fashion show:
