Rest days taken: 9 days.

Highest mileage week: 8/8 - 8/14 with 35.4 miles

Average pace: 8:11 min/mile

Races: Only one - I ran in one of the running clubs XC races.  Nothing special just a little tune up!

Current Obsessions:
The weather.  Between the race and the wedding, I have been checking the 10 day forecast non stop!

Current Blessings: My friends - their support and understanding has helped me to get through the last month of stressful planning!

Current Excitement: THE WEDDING!!  Less than 10 days!  Oh yeah and the 15k race I am running on September  5th!

Current Read: NOTHING!  Please help! I need a good book to take on the honeymoon for our flight! Any suggestions!??

Current Guilty Pleasure: The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Every time I turn on the TV this show seems to be on and I get sucked it!

What's a post with a picture - so just for fun - here's a picture of some shoes I was eying at the a store last week.  Hate to say it but I have been staying away from the high heels :(

How was your August!  Cannot believe it is SEPTEMBER!!!

How funny, I am 70 something miles away from 1,000 this year too!

All of those shoes are to die for! That must've taken some serious self control.
