Odds and Ends

After a rough work week, B-rabbit took me out to dinner to celebrate the Half Marathon. I usually don't drink at dinner but this was an exception as it was a special occasion. I got a pomegranate margarita and it was so good!!


After dinner, I ran in quick to Barnes and Noble and picked up Dean's 50/50 book. I have about three other books to read before I get to his so it might be about 3 weeks before I actually read it : (

This morning I woke up and ran with Winkly - 10 miles! It was actually quite cool and nice. We started off by mile 9 of the Half marathon and ran around that area. While running I got to thinking that I need to start picking up the intensity of my training. Track practices start October 6th and I will be running a 5k on October 11th so I need to get myself on track. Tomorrow depending on how I feel I might try for 6-7 miles. This week (Sunday Sept 14th - today) has been my highest mileage ever with 31.3 miles!!

I decided that my blog needed a change - I just can't seem to find a good picture of a sunrise or anything like that to go with my morning runner theme. Hopefully this week there will be a nice sunrise and I can take a picture and put it all together.

Enjoy the weekend!

Me! said...

Glad you celebrated -- I LOVE martinis! Did a 5k this morning ... actually walked most of it but it still felt good to be outside in the fresh air. Thinking of doing a marathon in April -- may need some training tips from you!

I could have used about 5 of those martinis yesterday on an all day family outing - 24 of us! gah.
Way to celebrate that 1/2! I like the scenery on your blog but sunset is a good call to go with your theme!!
