I am worried about the muddy trails up in the hills this coming sunday morning. They turn into flowing rivers as the water uphill starts to flow downward. It's crazy when you're running uphill while the water is rushing downhill.
The trails weren't so bad when this picture was taken, because the rains hadn't really started. The trails hadn't turned into rivers just yet.
I love having Angie and Heidi running this with me. And in this photo, they are literally there sandwiching me in.
Knowing we are all in this together, really helps. And i love our bonding time.
Angie in the middle. We are her sister-in-laws.
This coming Sunday we'll be running 12.6 miles in our practice run for our Half-Marathon race.
I only ran once this week.
It was on Wednesday night, in a very small drizzle... Heidi, Dennis and I ran maybe four-and-a-half miles singing songs.. "can you guess this tune!?" We hadda blast. Singing songs from the 50s to the present.
I felt like were on on a road trip.
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy... and I got a brand new pair of roller skates.. you gotta brand new key...
Running really is fun. It is!
The forecast for Sunday calls for: RAIN.
I know it will be an experience I will never forget. My hope and wish is that we all make it to the finish line in one piece and be ready for the Half Marathon on Feb 7th... just two weeks away. I can't believe how quickly this training has taken place.
And I'm ready. I'll keep you posted. Please come back to visit!
