So Many Things to Say

I'm so excited!!!!! My brother Martin & his wife and children came into town for the 4th of July festivities this past weekend. We were discussing my running because I was about to run 10 miles for the first time. During the conversation my brother's wife, Amanda, asked how my shoes are holding up. I told her they were pretty bad but we wouldn't be able to purchase any until the first of September. With a gleam in her eye she told me her & Martin wanted to take me out & purchase new running shoes for me. I was elated! On Sunday we went downtown to the Foot Zone and they purchased new running shoes & running socks, because I guess I've been running in the wrong socks this entire time, who knew?!?

I ran 10 miles this past Saturday and did very well. In fact, I ran the last two miles faster than I ran the first 8 miles. Yeah!! I run 10 miles the next two weekends and then I will probably keep progressing until the Half Marathon in Sunriver over Labor Day weekend.

I am super excited to say that I'm now helping some others along this journey. Jason & I are holding circuit training's in The Pine Nursery Park on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday mornings at 6 AM. It will be so exciting to see the women progress and start to see how strong they really are. This is our first week. In fact, I think I'll take a picture & post it. That way when I take another one in a few months you'll get to see the progress they have made.

I have so much more to say, but I'm soooo tired. So I'll save it for another day and another post.
