(14 miles) It was an early morning (what was I thinking when I agreed to a 7 am start??) but the weather was PERFECT. I was only going to do 10 miles but it was so nice out and I was having a great conversation with another Disney participant that I just kept going. I'll be headed to San Francisco to coach the Nike Marathon in just 18 days!

(13.1 miles) Today was the New Albany 1/2 Marathon and I had a great race! I got a personal record of 3:18 (unofficial)! I was even faster for the second 1/2 of the race which means I'm improving with my starts. If I start slower and warm up, then I can have a faster average. My fastest mile was mile 11 and I did 14:12 which might be the fastest mile I've EVER done!

(12 miles) The weather was beautiful this morning for the group training! We had a few sprinkles but then the sun came out. It was only about 62 when we started. I wish we could order that kind of weather on race days! It was a good 12 miles and I did it in 2:50 which is a great pace for me but I was definately feeling it in the last mile. My goal is going to do the New Albany 1/2 marathon in 3:20, which will be a personal record at the 1/2 marathon distance.
