A Few *Exciting* Things for Thursday!

**What I'm reading: To Be A Runner by: Martin Dugard
When I've finished I'll provide more thoughts on this book, but so far I can say, it has me excited about running and reminding me why I love to run!  He writes with humor and honesty.  Enjoying it thus far! ~> Check him and his book out HERE!

**Where I'm at in training:  um, week 9? Or is it 10?? I think it's 10. Yeah...ha! And I'm supposed to have a 20 miler this week. But guess which girl is working six million days in a row this week?? THIS GIRL! So maybe a shorter, long run on 'ol Treddy this week sometime. {I don't know about you, but the long runs have been the biggest challenge for me to squeeze YOU think it's okay to not have a super, long run each week?  Like every other week??}

**What I'm trying: CLIFBar's new energy gel. This is from the makers of Clifbar-->

***What's going on in your neck of the woods?  Anything exciting?***

Happy (&Blessed) Running!


  1. Long runs are my favorite run. I don't work on Saturday and Sunday and therefore the time is not a problem. On weekdays, that's when I struggle. Working 8 hours and then commuting for 1.5 hours one way, make it really tough for me to go for a run. Hope you will get a chance to run your 20 miler soon. Good luck!

    1. Commuting 1.5 hours ONE way??? ewww. No fun! Was going for a 20 today...but again I have to run when I can and had to get the tempo in yesterday so made my long run hard today! only 18...grr. But I still have another speedwork session and a 10 miler trail run planned with a friend on Sat so I think it's okay... I think. ha!


Thanks for the love :~)
