I spent the last few days in Florida with my parents. My mom and I worked on creating a knitting needle and crochet storage pouch/case. This is the prototype we ended up with:

Questions, comments, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Also, i went to dinner and Molly's with my friend Khim.

3 Miler

I'm so excited, last night i ran 3 miles at Sand Run (which is pretty hilly) in 24:38. My splits were 8:08, 8:10 & 8:20. It was the fastest that i have ever ran. I looked crazy breathing really hard and sweating profusely but i didn't care cause i was on a mission. Plus i wanted to get home as fast as possible cause Vince made dinner and it looked delicious. We picked our first zucchini, squash, Hungarian peppers from the garden which he sauteed, spaghetti, plus he made breaded zucchini flowers (they're so good)! So i enjoyed my awesome dinner with some Blue Moon to celebrate my sweet run. Off to Florida I go tomorrow!

Friday Dinner

Went to dinner with Scott and Stacey at Papa Joe's. We all ended up getting steak, it was delicious!! And of course White French Dressing, it doesn't get better than that, i ordered extra on the side to dip my steak and potatoes into. Yummy!!

So my running blog is more of a scrapbook then anything else, oh well. I did get about a 9 miler in on monday, yesterday i got a little weight training in at the Nat, today i have 5 on my schedule, hopefully another 5 tomorrow and 18 for saturday (14 of which will be on the akron marathon course). I'm excited it's going to be a hot day but nothing like running in the heat, my favorite. I think i like it cause i actually sweat. On cooler days i just don't sweat enough. Can't wait!

Long run

Saturday was my 18 miler long run, it took about 3 hours and we were at a 9:52 minute per mile pace. 1600 calories burned!

Not bad but i think we've got to get faster if we want to run close to a 4 hour marathon. Next weekend we're only at 10 miles, yee pee! Also, i found out that one of my running friends (Kristi) is pregnant, she has two marathons (akron & chicago) scheduled in the fall but i think she's going to continue training and running both of them. It's pretty exciting, she's in great shape so it's not going to be a problem for her at all.

4th of July

Can you say trouble??
On the 4th we went to V's sisters. It was really nice, the weather was perfect and the boys (V & D) had a blast.

Don't be fooled by the adorable and innocent smiles.

Corn Hole was also played!
and Fireworks!

Happy 4th of July!
