Week 8 – Halfway to a 1/2 Marathon!

Here we are, halfway done with our training, which means we are EIGHT WEEKS away from our first 1/2 Marathon! Two months!!

In the first half of traning I ran 105.5 miles. I have 120 to miles go in the final half, before October 14th – race day.

There is one cute note I must share from this week. I hit a hard spot on my long run in Sedgwick County Park today with Cory. So he ran to the other side of the path, swooped down & picked a sunflower for me. Sweetest running partner ever.

On another note, almost as cute, I got a three pack of tennis balls to roll my feet over (the idea came from this pin – http://pinterest.com/pin/36169603228159855/) and this is what happened next:

I began rolling my tootsies.

Then Natty decided she wanted one of the balls.

And since Natty had a ball, Winston needed one.

Which meant Natty STILL had a ball, so of course Winston needed that one too.


In the second half of my training I plan to experiment w/GU, ice baths & foam rollers and who knows what else.

Check back next weekend to see how the next 12 miles go!

  1. Forgot to give you those tennis balls. Remind me and I'll still give you a can for the pups to play with. No reason to have 4 cans of tennis balls in the trunk of my car!

    Looking forward to FINALLY joining you in the next 120 miles!

  2. Ha – You didn't tell me you had FOUR cans in your trunk! You must have been pumped up on some tennis.

    I am so looking forward to having my running partner back!! See you tomorrow for a chilly two!
