One Week

One week out from the Midsouth Race. The long forcast is not calling for any rain, which is good since I put a hold on building an Ark. We have had so much rain, the three dogs have been fighting over who is going on two by two. Just completed a countdown and I'm 16 weeks out from Cowtown. Guess I better get my mind right for this one. Signed up for the full marathon this year. Gotta drop at least 10 pounds before the race. Looking forward to completing my second full marathon though. First with the Cowtown.

Mid South Half Marathon

Two weeks out from the Mid South Half Marathon here in Wynne. Feeling pretty good about it, except for the fact I haven't run hills in a while. But, this will be a good run to get me motivated for the Cowtown Marathon in Feb. Most of my running parttners have bailed out on me. Injuries, bad weather, or just plain scared!! LOL Not to mention my Texas support has kicked me to the curb. Oh well, I have a lot of support here at home. I can always rely on my pit crew with Deb and Amy. :) They'll be out there cheering me on, like always. Fortunately, this is an out and back race so, they can cheer me on at multiple places throughout the race. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Weekly Total

I hit 30 miles for the week. The first time I have done that since hurting my knee back in July. Felt good to get in a 10 miler today. Completed the run in 1:23:50. I'm good with that. No knee issues at all. Learningn to take it slow, instead of killing myself for a faster time.

3000 and counting

I just realized, I broke the 3000 mile mark last week. Was recording my mileage for today's run and looked at my total. 3019.6 miles since I started keeping track in Jan 2007. I'm motivated again!! :) Wynne half marathon one month out. Cowtown marathon in Feb. Where will I go from there. Little Rock has a full marathon as well. Maybe I can get some of these SORT guys to run it with me!

Ok, a month out from the half marathon in Wynne. My running partner boo boo'd his toe and might not be able to run it now. So, most likey will be running it solo. First time running this race so it should be an experience with the hilly course. Luckily it is in Nov and should be cool enough. Let's get it on!
