Fun in the sun

Well, week one of marathon training for the Indy Monumental is done. Only 17 more weeks to go.

Tuesday- 3 miles
Wednesday- 3 miles
Friday- 5 miles
Saturday- 6 miles
Weekly mileage- 17 miles

It does feel strange only running 6 miles for my long run, when I can do so much more, but I really want to follow my plan.

This week I am house sitting for my sister while her fam is on vacay. I feel like I'm the one on vacation though. She has a beautiful house out in the country. It's so quiet, all you hear are birds singing and the sound of the pool pump.
 No loud neighbors, no neighbor kids who play basketball 24/7, no interstate noise, just peace. It's lovely.

There's been a lot of this going on.

 And this...

I may have gotten a little burned. (I don't use sunblock on my legs) Ouch!

My brother in law made a running path for me. So sweet!

I wonder if she would mind if I move in with her...

Ok, back to the pool I go.



  1. I may need to move in too!!!
    Seriously, your brother in law creating a running path for you?! That is so awesome and sweet!! Enjoy your time in the pool while you can!

  2. I'm almost positive I haven't run 17 miles in my entire life . . . haha seriously though, how do you find the discipline?! So impressed.

  3. That looks like such a great housesitting assignment! Have fun!

  4. I love that your brother in law mowed a special running path for you.

  5. Enjoy the pool! My longest run so far for my marthon training was only 6.5 miles!! It feels weird!
