4 miles

so i haven't been running as much lately...still running at least 2-3 times a week but with races coming i know i've got to pick it up. this morning i am happy to report i ran 4 miles. it was tough but it felt great...once i was done ;0). anyhow, i have several races coming up. a four mile race on sept. 13, this one is in the evening. it will still be daylight but i'm really excited for this one. the next race is sept. 27 and it's a HALF marathon. i sure hope i can do it! and then the BIG one...hopefully i will have the opportunity to run in the Disney's Princess Half Marathon. we were already planning on a disney vacation with some family and dusti and i along with our girls are so excited to plan our vacation so that we can participate in this race. it is so neat, even my girls and their cousins allie bari and abby can run/walk/ or crawl in the race. i've also signed Makenna and Chloe up for a kids fun race with me when i do the sept. 27th race. it feels so good to be out there running...i do absolutely love it. here's a little gross fun fact...my pretty toe nails that i didn't want to clip for the florida 5k are officially dark purple and i presume will be falling off. yuk! next time i will definitely listen to my brother he warned me ;0). anyhow, i've decided to pick up my running schedule to a minimum of 5 days a week. i'm also eyeing a 5k on sept. 1st.

Awwwww, man... FL
Nowhere's near me!
Well i know that you can do it!

Someday we'll have to meet.

I will not be running, though. Don't like it, decided it's not for me.
Perhaps someday when i get new lungs i'll feel more like running. The whole asthma thing puts such a damper on the running!
But i sure envy you! you are gonna be in such great shape! Way to go!!!
