I ran! and a fun tag

by - Thursday, October 01, 2009

Well last night I finally got bored of sitting on my butt every night after work and doing nothing so I headed out for my first run since my back to back half marathons.

I decided I wanted to push myself a little bit to see if I could run with some kind of speed after taking a week and a half off.

I did a 3.67 mile loops (I need to find a way to make that equal 4. I hate weird mileage numbers) in 34:11. That's 9:18 minute miles. I'll chalk that up to an awesome success. It was a nice evening too. Slightly chilly so I wore long sleeves for the first time this fall. Ended up pushing the sleeves up about half way through, but never felt overheated. Crossing my fingers that fall running is finally here!

In nonrunning news, Stacy over at Dare to Tri gave me this sweet award. But in order to accept, I have to play a fun little game and then pass the award on to six other bloggers.

So here we go:

And now for the six people (only six?!) that I choose (trying not to repeat anyone).

Lindsay at Chasing the Kenyans. This girl rocks. I got to meet her at the VB RNR and she totally kicked some booty at that race!

Frayed Laces. I love reading her blog. She's always tackling some new awesome challenge and is just a first class bad-ass athlete.

X-Country2. She cracks me up every day, usually because she's busting on RazZ. Plus she just started tackling tris and is doing awesome!

Wes from a Code Geek's Tail. Wes is one of the most thoughtful, inspirational bloggers I read. If you don't read him you should. Plus he's an IronMan.

Laura from Absolut(ly) Fit. I love reading about her quest to become the youngest woman to run a marathon in all 50 states. And I can totally relate to the whole balancing a social life/trying to fit in runs conundrum.

Susan from Nurse on the Run. What's a tag without a shout out to my fellow UMD alum! Susan's a super speedy runner, who's currently trying out biking while she gets over an injury!
