14 Mile Run and Pictures of the Hooligans...

On Saturday I was able to venture outside for a great run!  It was a GREAT run!  I ran my hilly route and really enjoyed the time to myself listening to my ipod and thinking about all of the house stuff.  Both contracts are off at this point, so I did a lot of reflecting. 

Anyway, I ended up running 14 miles in 2:06.  My last mile was at 8:38!  I felt so great.  I really feel like the speedwork is starting to pay off.  The last mile I felt like I was not even pushing it at all.  It was a great first week of marathon training!  I ended the week with 35 miles.

P.S. My husband just made my day.  It is amazing how a simple text asking for a lunch date can make a girl smile!

Now for the pictures!

Angel, Theodore, and Kya.  I always try to get a picture of the three of them together, and this is the best one yet! 

Here is Kya after our dirty 10 mile run last weekend.  She had sand all over her tummy and had to take a nice long bath.  At least I made her a little tired so she was a good girl in the tub!

So sorry to hear about the house woes. One of those things that just never seems to happen without some kind of a bump along the way. Hopefully this is a one bump road. Sounds like the training is going well. And what a cute clan you have too. I love the name Theodore!
