Half-marathon training
Week eight, day three

I decided to accept the fact that the weather was going to have me waking up with a headache until the front goes through and just planned to run on the Katy Trail after work again. Four miles, just like Tuesday.

Except today, I was really looking forward to it! Man I couldn’t wait for 5:00 so I could get in my running gear and head out to the trail. So I’m sure you know I had a great run, right?

Um, no. Actually it sucked. (Pardon my language, Coach Joe! Did I mention my running coach is a Baptist preacher?) The first mile always sucks but today it didn’t get better. I would think it was getting better for a minute or so…nope. My legs felt like cement and a couple of times I had to look down to make sure I was actually moving forward!

It was extra humid today, which I always struggle with, and sometimes you’re just tired I guess. Doesn’t matter, just keep running! I was glad when it was over though!

In other news – 3 of the winners of our football squares donated all or most of their winnings back to the cause ~ with no one asking and none of them knew the others had done it! So instead of $400, we raised $700!!! I’m constantly amazed at the generosity and support of my friends and family. Thank you all, not just for the financial contributions, but for the emotional support, the understanding of time constraints, the likes and comments on Facebook. You’re what keeps me going on days like today!
