Ten Miles!<p>

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

And whew, it was tough. Especially since last weekend I was far too sickto run. I did my maintenance runs this week, but it was still muchharder than the seven miles I did on 10-16. Maybe also because Josh wastoo sick to be a waterboy this week, so I didn’t get the rush of seeinghim […]

Bad for you but oh, so tasty<p>

So we’re getting another cat on Saturday, named Butter. Kitty wasgetting so bored all day that he’s become obnoxiously agressive andbitey. It was making me sad and it was embarrassing in front of guests(like a little dog you just can’t potty train weeing on your bestfriends’ shoes) – so for his own good we’re getting […]

Hooray for treadmills! <p>

So I’ve been really sick – and poor Josh, it looks like he’s juststarting to come down with whatever it is. I’m probably well enough nowto go on the group run tomorrow (cross my fingers, we’ll see how I feelat 7am), but I don’t think he’ll be feeling up to carrying water! Poorthing. I was […]

Seven Miles!<p>

I ran a quarter marathon yesterday! And it felt great! Much betterthan the six miles we did last week. I think it was because I had such abig breakfast – and then halfway through the run I remembered to eat oneof my packets of “Gu”. Ick, ick, ick… not that it was all that bad, […]

Six miles! <p>

Sunday, October 10th, 2004

Yay, I ran six miles on Saturday. Once again, the longest I’ve ever run in my life. -grin- Man, I was so tired when we got back. I wonder how long it will take before I think six miles is a snap… probably marathon day. -laugh- Josh came out to cheer me on as a […]

Quack quack.<p>

I think I did more than three miles today, though I’m not sure – I just timed myself for forty minutes and jogged the entire time, something I’ve only done once before. And I have a mascot! Meet Ducky, a “rescue” from my last group run. He was sitting by the edge of the pond, […]

Five miles! <p>

Saturday, October 2nd, 2004

Today the group was a full five miles, and from now on every single week I will be able to truthfully say that I’ve just run farther than I ever have in my life! We went a little too fast, though – averaged a 12 minute mile instead of the 14:30 that we were supposed […]

Per dad’s request, here’s another picture of my new hair.

Another great day<p>

I had such an awesome run today!! Wish I knew what it was that made runs particularly awesome, so I could repeat that. :/ I made myself run slowly the first half mile, and then to my surprise I was able to run the full 3 miles, FOR THE FIRST TIME, without stopping! I was […]
