My mind is mush today. I've been battling a weird headache, and I think it's because I drove A LOT this afternoon. Instead of a run, I helped out my big sister with some stuff for eBay. I got to wear some funky/weird/crazy outfits! It was pretty interesting. My sister is really amazing at putting outfits together and styling...I think she would be an awesome personal stylist. ;)
So anyway, I took a rest day. Well, my right foot didn't get any rest.
Yesterday, however, was a different story. It included a faster 10 miler with Mel in the AM...
There were definitely more 50-something overweight fishermen on bikes on the trail that day. Apparently Mel and I didn't get the memo to give us a heads up on the resolution/my-wife-is-making-me-ride-this-stupid-bike crowd. Some were friendly, some were grumpy, some were wheezing from the increased exertion, but all of them looked a little "out of place" (but in an endearing sort of way). Very interesting...
So, the end of the run was the fastest, surprisingly (8:23 pace!). We ran a total of 10 miles (10.03 per Gus, the overachiever) in 1:27:34, with an average pace of 8:43. Woot! It was difficult but very rewarding! Thanks Mel!
Oooo! How about naming the eagle "Sam" just like the Muppet character?
Katye: Finished her first half marathon...at Disney World

Penny: Ran the inaugural 13.1 LA race today, and also gave up an entry to a trail race to Aron! Running bloggers are the sweetest. :)
