No Beck Today...

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Today we walked/jogged 13 miles to prepare for the St. Jude's Half Marathon in Memphis next Saturday.

It was a SLOG; we've only been back from Nepal/India for a smidge over two weeks and I had that sinus infection and....we haven't had much time to prepare.

Yes, even though we were hiking, it's NOT the same as doing half marathons, and half marathons don't prepare you for hiking! It seems like we are ALWAYS scrambling to prepare for our events!

So no Beck today, but hopefully I'll be ready to move on in the book tomorrow.

We're still eating turkey, how about y'all? emoticon

Happy Sunday, everyone!

    She even says we can take a day off to work on something. We didn't have turkey so I am good....neither of us really likes the whole turkey thing....I just like it in sandwiches!

    Have a GREAT day, Sue!

    I just finished a Thanksgiving leftover lunch. Our fridge is so full, I think we'll be eating leftovers until Christmas…

    Another half marathon! You guys are really brave!
    You're absolutely right - hiking and running are two completely different animals. I've tried this walk/jog thing before, but really didn't have any fun doing flat pavement or track. For me it's hiking all the way.

    Got wet (and cold) on today's hike. We cut it short a bit (to 7 miles only), since the weather kept getting worse as we went along. We did however make the first peak we had planned on bagging. Lots of scrambling, lots of fun!

    Enjoy the rest of your day!
