first off i have to say a HUGE CONGRATS to my good friend from college meghan – she ran her first marathon this weekend down in LA and had a great time… i have been so lucky to bounce all my random questions off of her over the past month or 2 (and continuing months i am sure)… everything from fundraising down to having to pee during the marathon (which happens to be one of my biggest concerns hehe)… so i am VERY excited for her – i wish i could have been there on the sidelines with a go meghan sign!
we had our first run in walnut creek this weekend, turns out its the same trail chris and i ran on earlier in the week just further south from where we were. it was nice not having to leave the house as early as the other locations, but i think i like the other 2 better just to mix it up some. we ran 5 miles – which included our first hill (ouch!!)… note to self: need A LOT of practice on hills before august 3rd. whew!!! it just made me lose my breath VERY fast climbing up that thing. other than that was a great day out, not too warm at all, but much warmer than last week… should only get warmer from here on out. AND its daylight savings this coming sunday (march 9th) so it will be staying light later very soon! yay for more outside runs!
5 months from today is race day!!! its actually on a sunday, but its august 3rd… so feel free to block it off on your calendar and come out to SF to cheer us on that day we would love to have supporters!!
and check out this video… i am dedicating it to meghan – i am sure she relates to this today
