Two Days Before......

The Madill Half Marathon....and it's two days before Bonnie's very first 10k. After our church meeting last night....she went out and ran 2 miles in the neighborhood.....I'm so very proud of her efforts...she's now able to run the full 2 miles without a walk break...she's progressing alot faster than I am I fear...but then I'm a year older than she is.....

If time permits I may work in one last run this afternoon. It should be at least another 5k "solid" run. These are really building confidence for me that I can do that and more. I'm still thinking I'll at least start the race though at our normal run/walk type of pace...then after 3 or 4 miles....who knows....

We are going to dinner at another marathoner's home tonight here in Edmond. She is one of the "unique" true finishers of last Sunday's Chicago Marathon....she was also a part of I think the Mt. Hood to the Coast.....or one of those recent relay type races that covered 197 miles, so we are going to swap stories and I am going to be paying attention and hopefully getting some very useful advice from her.
