I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

Inspired by Nan's amazing run at the 20k, I hit the track this morning for some 1000 meter repeats.  My goal was 6-8 at 3:30 with 1 lap recovery.   I warmed up two miles through the neighborhood.  I did 4 200's to get some turn over going.   I ended up doing six repeats at 3:27-3:29.  I was very even.  I started to struggle on number six and had to negative split to hit the time, so I thought it was time to call it good.  Let's see . . . Nan ran an entire 20k at about that pace . . . Yep, still lots of work to do!  I cooled down a mile on the track, and then ran home.

It felt cold this morning.  I ran in a short sleeved shirt, and didn't warm up until the sun came all the way out the last two miles of the run.  I wish I had worn a long sleeved shirt. 

I just had time for eight miles before taking Cole to his pre-school orientation. (My baby's growing up!)  I ran 4800 S to river trail, over to 1300 W and back to 5400 S.  I didn't like the big hill today!  My legs were pretty tired from yesterday's track workout, so I tried to take it easy.  I hate those days when even though you are running easy, your legs are still heavy and sore!  I was glad I had my IPod today.   Motivational song of the run:  I Like It (Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias)  Now everyone reading my blog is singing it in their head and will be for the next week!
