Favorite Thing: 8.2 miles!!

Hello dear readers, today my favorite thing is an accomplishment! I ran 8.2 miles today, my longest yet, in my trek to the Nike Women's Half Marathon in October. Woot!

I can't believe August is almost over and so with it the true weeks of summer. Although fall is one of my favorite seasons, I want to make sure I really appreciate summer. Now that I am back on the east coast, I see the summer I know and love...billowing thunderhead clouds, lush green, hear the cicadas and frogs and crickets, lemonade stands, smell cut grass.

For me, I hope I remember this summer of 2009 as a big one--big move east and hopefully successful training for this half marathon in October.

What has been your favorite part of summer?


  1. Congratulations on your accomplishment! That's a lot of miles!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS! Whew, that's quite a run... it puts me to shame! Glad to hear that you are loving life back on the East coast!

  3. Congrats to you! WOW~ What a huge accomplishment! :)

    I LOVE summer so I am going to be a bit sad to see it officially come to an end here (WI) real soon! :( Yours will definitely be one to remember- a big move, training for your first half-marathon...! :)

  4. That is so great! I have been thinking about starting a running regimen - I haven't ran since I was forced to do the obligatory "mile run" in high school. Do you have any advice on how to get started? How long has it taken you to be able to run this much? I would LOVE any words of wisdom!!
