Week 2 complete and a really spectacular quote!

I ran 4 miles yesterday for a grand total of 50 miles in July.  I ran the first 3.25 miles with Caitlin then finished off the last mile doing a little speed work on my own.  Total time was 42:50, and I felt great.  It was really hot though.  I was very happy for some cold water when I finished.  That means week 2 of marathon training ended with 3 days of running for a total of 13 miles.  There were also two swim lessons (and a short swim practice/goofing off in the pool with Chris today), and an hour and a half of hot yoga.

This morning I attempted to make Caitlin@HTP's delicious looking french toast sundae breakfast.  Let's just say that breakfast was an epic fail this morning.  Banana soft serve really should be made in a food processor, because my blender did not like it.  I am now on a hunt for a small (I don't have a place to store anything huge) food processor. 

I hope that you all are having a wonderful weekend.  I want to end this short post with a really wonderful quote that I read today.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.  We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?'  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you.  We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us.  And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."  ~Maryanne Williamson, used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech
