Bad Blogger

Okay, to catch up on old times, I know....... I am a bad blogger. Hopefully I will do better. Not to make excuses but I was having computer problems along with the fact that I type about 10 wpm. Those together make for a BAD BLOGGER!Here is what I have been up to.

For the last 86 days I have been running at least 25 minutes everyday. Some days are longer than that but none are shorter. I have found myself running at 4:30 in the morning and 11:00 at night to keep the streak alive. I have never been a big fan of "making" myself run, but if it weren't for forcing this habit, some days I would not run at all when I should. So in the next two weeks I will approach my milestone of 100 days.

This being said, my son Taylor's streak is 366 days ahead of mine and he is approaching his 2000 mile for the year! I average about 29 miles per week but most of my runs right now occur at practice for the McDonald Junior High cross country team. I try to get a longer run in on the weekends and so far I have felt fine.

We attended my daughter's first cross country meet of the season last week and she had a fourth place finish. She ran well and she seemed strong throughout the race. It is nice to see your summer work pay off. Here is a video of the start of the race:

Here are some other pictures that I have been waiting to upload:
