HAPPY END OF APRIL! And also a big happy birthday to THIS GUY:
That’s my rad dad aka: Betty’s “BeBop”. He’s AWESOME and bears a striking resemblance to old school Bruce Jenner. You know…the Olympic one. Not the bad plastic surgery one.
And I still make that face often.
As far as running is concerned, this month has been SO MUCH BETTER than March. In March, due to my tendonitis, I was only able to log a little over 60 miles which is awesome when you are trying to train for a marathon. This morning’s 10 miler brought my April mileage to just shy of 122 miles.
Speaking of this morning’s 10 miler…I just ran 10 miles on a treadmill.
Don’t get me wrong, I usually like the treadmill. When I’m running I’m just happy to be doing it and don’t really care where it’s happening, but 10 miles on a treadmill is a lot. It’s especially a lot when you don’t like the movie they are showing at the gym. I know…pity party for me and my gym with the movie theater.
My options this morning were either a bad movie OR the potential of getting electrocuted because we have some severe weather in the area, so the obvious choice was Saving Silverman. I got it done at a decent 7:58 pace and now it’s behind me and only an easy 5 miler tomorrow stands between me and the 20 miler I have looming this weekend. This week is going to be my highest mileage week ever. It’s also freezing, rainy, and I have a really bad head cold. Thanks, Murphy’s Law.
My hotel may be booked, but I am SO NOT READY FOR THIS. Hopefully I’ll feel a little differently in a couple weeks.
Here’s something I am ready for though!
To be a part of this awesomeness! The other day I was contacted with some excellent news. I’m a new Ambassador for Girls Gone Sporty, an amazing group of inspirational ladies from all over who share a love of fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. GGS is broken up into different teams. I was assigned to Team Stellar and quickly realized just how STELLAR this group was going to be. 140 strong and motivated women! I was especially excited to see that some of my favorite blog friends are on my team. My head almost exploded into a puff of confetti when I saw Suz on there! And Kathryn! And Adrienne! GO TEAM!
I have always loved blogger features and interviews on other sites I read. Maybe I need to start up a Stellar Sister Feature on here. 🙂
I hope everyone has an excellent Wednesday and if you’re weather is anything like mine, STAY DRY!
What is the longest treadmill run you’ve ever completed? Do you like Saving Silverman?
