So, I'm excited to run tonight, since we missed our weekend run. And we just started the Summit County Metroparks' Fall Hiking Spree, so hopefully we'll choose a new trail tonight. It's Eris' favorite time of year for that reason.
It's a great organized trail hike that selects new trails every year, and after hiking 8 or more you earn a hiking shield. Lauren and I are going for our third this year. It's really cool that we can combine our training for the marathon with our hikes.
Jason and I attended our first team run on Sunday at the Brecksville Towpath. We love the area Metroparks and always enjoy seeing new ones! This was perfect for our 40 minute run…nice and flat! I think we both surprised ourselves by how much of the 40 minutes we were able to run, taking only a few quick walking breaks. We will be back on our training schedule this week…life finally seems to be back to normal after vacation! Hope everyone has a great, productive week!
So, I know I'm getting old, but in case I forgot, this morning was a reminder. I ran/walked almost 5 miles yesterday trying to jump start back into my training after taking two weeks off. I felt great yesterday, but today is a different story. Just serves as a good reminder to slowly work up to it.
On a side note, the letter responses have been coming in. THANK YOU to all who have donated so far! It's your support that motivates us.
