3 more weeks!

3 weeks from today I will be running my next 13.1 miles with thousands of others. Why? Not because I have to - no, no one is making me. Not because I need to - no one will be chasing me. I will be running 13.1 miles at 7am on a Sunday morning because I can, because I want to. Wow - isn't that a great feeling?

This past weekend's run was ok. It was fun, but so damn tiring. At the end of 8 miles I was achy. Not necessarily tired, my body just wanted to stop moving.

It was a really great morning to run outside. I started around 7:30, it was about 70-75 degrees, breezy (not windy), and tons of runners everywhere! Since it was a longer run, I ran with my running pack and put my phone in there. I have this fear that I'm going to get lost or fall and hurt myself and need to call to have someone come and get me. With that said, I was able to get some photos with my phone that I thought were awesome! I'm actually looking forward to going on the trail early in the morning when I'm not running, and bringing my real camera to get some great photos.

Football games that made me smile (aka totally stoked because I have very strong feelings for a team):

USC - LOST to Washington!
Arizona - LOST to Iowa
Texas - WON against Texas Tech
Arizona State - WON against ULM


Week and a half until Basketball season starts... GO SUNS!!!

Hope you all had great weekends and great races!


  1. 3 Weeks YAY!!! Yay for 13.1 you are going to have a blast girl!!!

  2. Three more weeks! How exciting! I use to think it was crazy to run for no reason but now I love it! It is definitely adictive!

  3. it's such a great feeling, isn't it! :)

  4. Those pics are awesome! Austin is so much prettier than flat 'ol Waco. I had an early morning run this weekend too that I'll post about soon. It involves bunnies, cows, a fence builder and a highway where minimum speed is 95mph I think. Keep up the great work. 3 weeks will be here before you know it!!
