This blog was started as a way of keeping myself motivated to keep working out, and the blog has been successful in that aspect. I started running in 2007, and it really has transformed my life. I have discovered so many inspiring individuals through the "blog world" and many delicious recipes. I use this blog to keep track of my training and write about the fun things in life. Keep checking back to read about my training for my first marathon, in February 2011.
Chris and I met up with the running group today for a really fun trail run at Weikiwa State Park. The running path was 5.6 miles, but after doing a little back tracking we ended up running about 6 miles. It was very hot, and we ended up doing a walk/run. We were both glad that I bought my hydration pack filled with ice water. Although running on trails seemed more difficult, I loved it so much more than running on the road. After meeting up with the rest of the group, we all went in the spring which was like an ice bath. At first it was extremely cold, but after you were very glad you got in the water. After the spring, most of us headed out to breakfast. We had a really wonderful time. After returning home, I took a nap which was splendid. I love afternoon naps.
I have a few pictures to share. I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!
