Chicago Marathon Training and Fathers Day

Happy Monday! 

  I hope all the Daddy's out there had a great Father's Day! In honor of my honey, I'm posting this pic from our wedding, almost 7 years ago. He is the best daddy in the world!

My family also took my Dad out to eat to celebrate him! This is all of us kiddos, except for 1 sister, who lives in WI.
(If you can't tell, I'm in the blue pants)
 In running news...
 I just completed week 2 of Chicago Marathon Training. Last weeks miles were 16.
10 of those were on Saturday.

I haven't had a long run in almost 2 months!! Way too long! It felt sooo good. Of course it was pretty hot, but for about half of it, I ran a path in in the woods, so I had lots of shade and a nice breeze. I thought I would be sore afterwards, since it's been awhile since I've ran long, but I wasn't at all. 
 Ahhh, I love training for a marathon! (Is that crazy?)

How did you celebrate Fathers Day?



  1. Happy Monday to you too!! :) You're long run scenery is beautiful! Glad you got out there for a long run after such a long time! :) Keep up the great work! :)

  2. We had a nice BBQ over at my sister's place...5 dad's in total. And great food all around!
    No, it isn't crazy to love marathon training...I'm having a blast too! You get such an awesome high after those long runs, especially if you still feel "good" when you're done.

  3. I am SO afraid of taking the marathon plunge, but your enthusiasm over it makes it a little less scary. I am AWFUL at sticking with a training plan, but I know I'll have to when it comes to 26.2. Someday... :)

  4. I'm doing NYC again this year (ok didn't actually get to run last year, so training again) and this was my first long run back...I am kind of excited to work back up my mileage after lots of halfs, never thought I would say that again!
