Fall into Beauty!

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I was in awe today of the fall colors and all the things that God can accomplish. After the severe heat & drought that we had this summer, with trees dying off all over the place- the spledor of the fall colors this season has been tremendous!

Going alon with tremedous was the 5 mile run we got in this morning. Bumping our long runs up from 4 to 5 miles this week, we did 1/1 intervals and took the run segment at an easy pace. The run felt great & I could not have asked for a better morning to be out. As I was running, I was pondering the last time I was training for the Little Rock Half Marathon- and how I started at zero and went to 13.1 in 12 weeks. While I am not much faster than I was then, I am feeling more accomplished with hitting the 5 mile run with months left to train. We'll stay at the 5/6 mile distance for several weeks before moving ot the 7/8 mile distance.

I am thankful for time to get ready this time & hopefully have more of a distance base to feel really really good and avoid injury.

I heart endorphins!
