On Saturday I completed the 5th week of marathon training with my sister. We met in the park and there was a running group that was planning on doing 3 miles so we ran with them for a bit until they turned to go back and we continued on so we could complete 7 miles. The day was foggy and a bit drizzly, but it was warmer than it had been so I thought it was a great day for a run. The white of the dense fog made the yellow-green of the grass really pop! We did the whole trail and back making our run a little over 7 miles – the whole time doing the walk/run/walk/run using the timer on my phone. I am getting a little faster every time and am almost back to the time I was last year (which is still not really fast). I’m lucky my sister sticks with me- she’s just happy to run (although I know she can go wayyyy faster than me).
On Oct 23, 2016 I had the privilege of riding in the Bike MS: NYC which was a 30 mile route around Manhattan. NYC is another area I haven’t been to in YEARS and I was disappointed I didn’t get to do as much sight seeing as I wanted, but that just means another trip back – preferably when it’s a bit warmer!
Here is a little update on how last weeks marathon training went –
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!! I HAD to get up early to try out the star mode on my new camera – well more specifically the star portrait mode. It takes a photo of someone and then another photo of the stars behind and lays the 2 images on top of each other. Of course I wanted to use JoJo as my model!
