So....today I didn't get to run outside like i wanted - my son Brandon has strep throat. Being a mom means others come before you, and I am fine with that. Today Lilly was my training partner and I ran 10 miles on her at tempo pace, around a 7:51 minute mile. It felt great, even though I was staring at a wall the entire time :(
Brandon needed me at home to take care of him, so at least the miles got in and I feel better starting my day off right. I am registered for the Mt. Diablo Trail Challenge half marathon tomorrow - but it looks like the mountain will have to put others besides myself to the test. I was looking forward to running those trails in the mud and getting really dirty. But, there is always another race and another time.... I just hope Brandon gets better quickly. I HATE seeing my children sick and uncomfortable. So...if I can run 10 miles in one spot staring at a wall....you should get out there and MOVE today. You'll be glad you did. Cheers!!!
