12 easy miles...

I ran 12 miles yesterday morning with my neighbor Jen. We left our houses at 5:30 am and arrived back by 7:15 am-so 12 miles in 1 hour, 45 minutes isn't too bad, huh? Then I quickly stretched, refueled and showered and we were in the car for church by 8:55 am! Afterwards, we treated ourselves to a little Mellow Mushroom downtown, which hit the spot! Eating pizza after running 12 miles = no guilt! It was a beautiful day downtown. We even managed to fit in a family bike ride that afternoon. This morning I was up to do my strength training and didn't even feel like I ran 12 miles the day before. It was awesome running with Jen...we talked the entire time! She's going to do 13 with me next Saturday and she's not even training for a marathon. Can you believe I'm actually looking forward to running 13? I think I'm officially 'addicted' to running! She's done two at 3:45, so I think she knows a thing or two about it :) This weekend is busy, but fun! I'm hosting Bunco on Wednesday, our 9th anniversary is on Thursday and we have good friends coming in town from NC for the weekend! I also have two photo shoots and tons of errands to do. I got called to jury duty and need to get out of that...one of the perks of being a stay at home mom I guess.

Oh wow. I am so trying to catch the fever again but it STILL has not happened. That could be because it is STILL hot here in FL. Keep writing about it and eventually it will happen. I am doing a 5k in October though. That's nothing to you though........13, wow.

Way to go on the running!!! My goal is to run a marathon this year.. I've run two half-marathons so this is a new endeavor! Good luck on the 13 on Saturday... I'll be running 7!

Yay! I'm so glad to hear your running is going well. When's your 1/2? When's your full?
