Wow! It's been a while since I've posted. Life has just been ... well, life! I got strep throat a couple of weeks ago and that knocked me out for about 3 days. That means that everything got behind a little and well, you know how that goes.

I had to take it easy that week with running but I got back to the grind last week. A couple of weeks ago I ran my first 5-mile run! I can't believe that. This past Saturday I tried another 5-miler (on a flat route) and I completed it just a couple of minutes behind my husband! But I will have to say that the last mile seemed harder. I'm at the point that I feel pretty good after my 4-mile runs, but after the 5 miles ones I feel a little nauseous!

The 10-K is in about 4 weeks! Should be exciting!

Oh yeah! Kim wants some of us to run a 10-miler in the fall and I agreed before I really thought about it. I'm not sure what I've gotten myself into...

Way to go, girl. It won't be long before 5 miles is a light run to you.
I am just as crazy and agreed to run the 10 miler with Kim also. I suppose I better pick up the pace a lot more.
I have to do something--because the Girl Scout cookies came in today--Lord, help me with restraint.

That is so great! I can't wait to hear how your 10K goes. You're going to do great! If you can run a 10K, a 10 miler is no big deal at all!
