            After reading this I went and checked mine. I've done 14 in a row so far. I hadn't really meant to but now that I think about it I just might try to get out there every day too...

              I am housesitting for my parents so I am back in the old 'hood. I went for a run yesterday and ran two pretty big hills (one I forgot about, one I was building to). I made it up both Smile

                    way to go everyone.... great results!

                     

                    time to pat myself on the back.....hope I don't pull a muscle

                     

                     

                    September was my first 200 mile month.  I had 3 50 mile weeks in there....

                     

                     

                    First marathon is on October 18.

                      Longest run for me since April today!  6.7 miles - felt great.  Fall is definitely coming in Northern Illinois - leaves are staring to change/fall and lots of rain and cool weather in the past week..  Kinda cool today - but a great day for running.

                      See how they run...

                        Lots of great running here! 

                         

                        My victory today is I did 11.03 miles on the treadmill today.  It was cold and rainy and I know I should have sucked it up and ran outside but I didn't.  And the Gods were laughing at me because about 1/2 hour into the run on the treadmill it stopped raining  

                         

                        The longest treadmill run I've done since Spring 2008. 

                         

                        And because there is zero air flow at the gym I sucked down 40 oz of liquids and 1 apple jolly rancher and didn't even need to take a bathroom break. 

                         

                        Oh, and I was a human salt lick from all the sweating. 

                          Today I ran 8 miles, longest distance I've ever ran in my life.  I really wanted to skip the long run due to traveling late last night.  Beautiful weather helped- 52° F when I started (2 weeks ago it was 92° F) at 10 am.


                            ran 10k pr yesterday in my 2nd career as runner, 2 days after 54th b'day..  longest "race" in over 25 yrs. 1st mile 8:30, ran last 5+ around 7:30 or so for 47:30.  Not earthshattering but improving & will be faster next one!  Race put me over 30 miles for week which is what have been averaging recently, so race was done with basically no taper except taking Sat. off.   good test for tuture races.


                            Consistently Slow
