My 100th Post!

Oh my. Oh boy. Oh wow.
This is my 100th post.
Here's a look at the "then vs. now"

Jan 24, 2010: I ran 3 miles in 39 minutes. 
July 20, 2010: I ran 3 miles in 29 minutes.

Jan 25, 2010: I ran 4.5 miles in 58 minutes.
July 14, 2010: I ran 5 miles in 55 minutes.

Then: It's too cold to run outside.
Now: It's too hot to run outside. 

Ran in snow: 0
Ran in rain: 1
Got ran over: 0 

Then: One 5K race.
Now: Finished 3 5K races + 1 this Saturday.

Total Mileage-to-date: 323.44 miles 

I didn't get to bed until 4 a.m. this morning as I was helping the boyfriend.  I was up by 8:30 because we have company (family friend and her 3 girls) at the house.  We ate breakfast and were in the pool by 10ish. We swam and played and swam and swam until almost 2 p.m.  I had a wonderful time playing with her kids and talking to them. I got a pretty nice looking tan too. I was tired though.  I managed to sneak in a 30 minute nap and was kinda groggy when I woke up from my nap.  I really wanted to run today too, so I headed up to the Y and ran a quick 2 miles (19:50 minutes).  My legs were still a little tired from Monday's two-in-1-day training.  Did I mention I have a 5K race this Saturday?  I don't know how I will do because I'm so spoilt and have been avoiding running in the heat.  In the perfect world, I want to PR again. But we'll see. I will be running that race with my boyfriend's little tween brothers so, I have no idea what I am expecting out of that race yet.  

Last but not least, I want to ...
