Wet 6

Comments: Rain, rain, go away…” I don’t mind running in rain, but this one was cold…

I have come to enjoy running without a fuel belt and it’s starting to hinder my long runs. I went out without one today, but it’s mileage limiting. 6 is the max I am going without a belt. I did GU at mile 4, just to make sure I wouldn’t crash at the end.

My daughter (12 y.) donated $5 today towards my TNT training. I thought that was very sweet!

Time: 8:00 am

Weather: 45, rain!

Shoes: Saucony ProGrid Guide ( 145.9 miles)

Distance: 6

Run Time: 1:02:24

Split: 10:24

Team in Training

Greetings dear Family, Friends, Visitors, fellow Runners and Bloggers; 

 

In order to make my running more of a challenge and give it a deeper meaning I have commitmented to running the Captial City 1/2 Marathon for/with Team in Training, which is know for its fund raising efforts to fight Leukemia and Lymphoma.

 

My pledge to The LLS is to raise between $1,500 to $2,000 by April 8th.

 

I am currently waiting to receive the information to set up my my personalized website to accept donation. Once I do I will update this post.

 

I am looking forward to this challenge and hope you join me, motivationally and financially, on my quest to help people in need, while doing something I enjoy. 

 

Thank you in advance for your support.

 

– Penny

Cold, but fast 4

Comments: The cold weather wants me to stay inside. Today, getting ready to run, it felt like going to a second job. Hmmm… I enjoy the runs once I hit mile 2, but lately I have a hard time getting out the door and it’s easy for me to find a reason not to go.

Tomorrow night the hubby and I are going to an informational meeting for Leukemia “Team in Training”. I am hoping that it will get me back into the ‘wanting’ to run. If their training is for me then I’ll be training and raising money for them for the 1/2 marathon I plan on running in May. I wish the breast cancer foundation would have something like that. But you know, cancer is cancer and it needs to be eradicated!

Time: 10:20 am

Weather: 33!!!, overcast

Shoes: Saucony ProGrid Guide ( 136.53 miles)

Distance: 4

Run Time: 38:47 (2nd fastest 4 miler for me)
