Lyle: So, when are you going to have a Saturday free?
Lyle: So we can go on vacation?
Me: Free from what?
Me: Um.... November!
Me: I have long runs EVERY Saturday until the marathon. I can't just not do it. I mean, I can do the long runs on vacation.
Lyle: I don't want you running by yourself.
Me: Well, you can pick a spot on the beach and I can run 3 miles away from you and back on one side, and then the other... that makes 12... and if I did it again on one side, it would be 18.
Lyle: That is CRAZY!
Me: Yeah... well, so is training for a marathon.
I think I know why people do not run marathons. Not because they can't physically but because it is a HUGE time commitment. HUGE! I KNOW that I cannot just skip a run... because I will pay for it at my next run.
On the flip side (Facebook followers already read this), I took advantage of the kids in Vacation Bible School this morning and ran in the daylight. I know, right? I novel idea! It was hot - the sun was hiding but the HUMIDITY was out of this world. I ran 7 miles in 1:04:03.

I am getting faster and best of all... having FUN!
Oh, and I am thinking about getting my hair cut and colored. What do you think about this look?
In 2007, my hair was styled like this...
But if I was brave enough, I would get it colored like this... could a 33 year old mother of 2 pull this off?
