|Still running at 16 of 20 miles|
|B and I still smiles at mile 16|
My 20 mile run was awesome!!! My first ever!!! Yes, last year I did run a marathon but wasnt able to complete the full training for it due to injury. This was one of the most fun runs; a big thanks to my friend B for running with me and to some great friends who helped us along the way. Taper time starts now, hoping that my body doesnt revolt; have a Half Marathon on par for next weekend (looking for my new PR). I just cant believe that the Chicago Marathon is 21 days away!!!!

Kelly, over at Secrets of a Running Mom, had a asked a question a few weeks back on "Food not ruling this house', and I responded telling her about little 'secret's that I do and shared a few recipes with her. How awesome, because now she is sharing some of my favorite recipes with all of you (1 at a time though). Thank you so much !!! Congrats Kelly on finishing the Air Force Marathon- WAY TO GO!!!!!
On an ending note. Not sure if this is a deal at your house or not, but I was out shopping for razors ( one of the wonderful joys of being a women) and came across Bic Soleil Shimmer razors, nothing fancy about them ,BUT they came with a free pair of Ear Buds. I don't know about you, but I go through a lot of Ear Buds in my training. So go check your local store and see if they have the same deal. I found mine at Meijer.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!! Catch up with you soon. I am going to try and enjoy my taper weeks here before 10-10-10. How does your body handle tapering?
