10 Miles and stuff

Well, I woke up at 7 a.m., planning on getting an early start...but it was raining, and didn't stop until 9! Now, I don't mind to run in a sprinkle, but this was too much! So, I got a late start, but it was cool, so it was awesome!
 My sweet friend, Charity, ran 5 miles with me. I was so proud of her, that was the longest she'd ever run, and she did it almost all nonstop!
  My new shoes were awesome! It was SO nice to have no blisters and pain-free feet at the end of my run!

This is the road I run on, see the water tower WAY in the distance? Seeing that gives me hope, that's my light at the end of a tunnel, cause that's where my car is! :) I round a corner and see that tower and know I'm almost done!
  2 weeks from now I will have run my half marathon! I know next week I'm supposed to taper off, but I just don't see that happening. I would really like to have at least one more long run, I'd like to do the whole 13 miles. The most I've done so far is 11. So, we'll see what the week brings!
This is my niece and I. We were 'twins' last night, both wearing purple halter tops. Love her!
Tomorrow is my 6 year anniversary with the love of my life. Tonight we're going to a steakhouse, the only time of year I'll eat a steak, or pretty much any meat! Then he has some other surprises planned. I really don't know how I got such an amazing man, but I'm SO thankful!!

  2. SO glad the new shoes are working for ya!!! And PLEASE taper. PLEASE. Your glycogen stores need to be full for peak performance and they won't be if you don't taper properly. It will suck. You will be short tempered. But I promise it will be worth it. Ok sermon over. You're gonna kill that race!

    1. Ok Jen, you can tell I'm a newbie, I didn't realize tapering was so important! I was just thinking I wanted to get another long run in, before the race! But I will TRY to listen and just stick to the shorter runs this week! ;)
