Beautiful day to squeeze in a run! (Although this Florida girl is getting a little worried about this fall/winter).

Woo hoo! Proud of myself for fitting this one in. This old lady can't see in the dark, so I have to make sure I am in before the sun sets. I got out there pretty late, so I cut my run a little shorter and added some speed (800 on 800 off x 3) in the middle to make sure I was back in time. Timed it perfectly and soaked up the last bit of sunlight as I approached my car.

Running "fast" (relatively) felt good, I can tell my fitness is improving!

Beautiful day for a wildlife-sighting filled run. If that made sense. I am sure it was one of my last warm runs of the year. 

Longest run yet! Looking forward to getting to the double digits in a few weeks.

My plan was to do 2x1 mile surges during my run, but I think I did my first too hard and had to pretty much hobble the rest of the way.  Whoops.

 

My brothers are running the Baltimore marathon right now! For one of them it's his first. GO BILLY AND BRENT!!!

4 miles with my Dad and my brother Brent, the newest runner of the family and newly-minted marathoner.

This race was what I had been training for, and things were going great until school got nuts for a while. But I ran it anyway and mannnn did it hurt. They couldn't have found another hill in Farmville of they tried. I ran it in 21:21 but I highly doubt the course was accurate. I am thinking it may have been short but I have no way to tell. It was very unorganized and we (me and a 10 year old who were leading the race) had to work together to figure out where to go. I ended up getting 2nd overall... which is actually disappointing because it goes to show the running scene in Farmville is no bigger than I thought. I did meet a couple colleagues there who run occasionally, and I am hoping to get them to run more often so I can have some running partners.
