Well I’m done with the long runs until the event – 2 weeks from tomorrow. I am exhausted. I hate to admit it too. Actually last year I felt a lot better after the 10 mile jaunt, but I really pushed myself today. I started at my house and when I got to the Capitol went on past and down Capitol Ave. and back around several times to end up with 10 miles. I ran into the wind the entire time. I wore shorts and all the usual garb, and my new shoes. It was a good run. Averaging 14 minute miles. I know for experienced runners that is slow. For me though, it’s great! I will be doing 3 – 5 mile runs over the coursre of next 2 weeks. Really tired…signing off…zzzzzzz.

congratulations! well done! like your new tennies, did they help with your knee?
Thanks Dolores. The new tennis shoes were great – they’ll be even better once the newness wears off. My knees are good – muscles sore and tired. I’m still exhausted. Partly due to cold too. It is all I can do to get ready for Church and fundraiser today. I just want to go back to bed. Pretty sad… Have a great day! Anne
