|November 8, 2014!|
Now that this grand announcement is out of the way, I can tell you about my weekend. This weekend was a busy one! Labor Day is always a fun weekend for me because Mr. Marathon and I usually are both off and ready to relax. This year, we were both off, but we hardly had time to relax! We got to visit with our trusty 4-legged companion (the dog we get to dog-sit when his humans are out of town) starting on Friday. Saturday was the day I had been dreading for 8 weeks. I had my longest run to date scheduled for week 8 of my training plan-- a 15 miler. I have been slugging through 10 and 12 milers, but I had yet to break the 13.1 mark... until Saturday. And I did it! Slowly and painfully, I made it through. Completing this 15 miler really gave me hope that I can do it. I have 9 more weeks of training to make it through, but knowing that I can go farther than I have before really encourages me! I feel like I actually can do a marathon. I know that 15 miles isn't quite 26.2, but I still have 9 weeks to build up to it!

|We look a mess! Ok, well I do.|
|We celebrated our 15.02 mile, 3 hour and 34 minute run|
with Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuits! Yum!

corn salsa and chicken pizza!
