Solar Eclipse Ends Great Weekend Pre-Training for Marathon – Strong

Scope out a spot tonight that will give you the best vantage point to watch the sunset.  You’ll see something that doesn’t come around very often.

Much of the U.S and Canada, will see a rare partial eclipse at sunset Sunday. This photo is from the June 10, 2002 eclipse. Credit: Christopher Go

For more info about this eclipse click  here.  I found this blog pretty interesting. 

What a time we had at my nephew’s wedding.  Friday, my sisters and I hosted a bridal luncheon then later in the day we gathered with everyone at the rehearsal dinner.  Yesterday was the wedding with a dinner reception later in the evening and finished it off with a dance.  Click here to see the pictures.  Jon is about as good as they come.  So much fun to be around and full of heart and soul.  Malorie  is the girl of his dreams and we all love having her in the family.  They have dated for several years and finally Jon popped the question last fall. He is so cool, he had a photographer snapping pics and Malorie was so surprised.  This picture was used as a “save the date” card for their wedding.

Jon proposes to Malorie in St. Louis

Even with the wedding I still got my 4 miles in yesterday and then went on to dance up a storm last night (great aerobic workout My Fitness Pal says that it’s possibly another 400 calories burned :)).

Then today I did 5.3 miles.  It was about 85 degrees so midway through I did a half mile portion of it walking in our mall to cool down a bit.  The .33 miles was the cool down at the end.  I forgot to turn off my tracker though so it messed up my pace.  I ran 2.5 at 12 minutes then the rest I race walked.

The heat was tough.  I figure I had better get used to it since it’s just going to keep getting warmer.  Best strategy is to run in morning.  Will be easier to do that this week.  Burned 630 calories with today’s effort.   Pre-Training for Marathon is still going well.  Muscles were a bit tired today but no complaints.

Have a great afternoon!
