I love to RUN!

I love to run!  That's how I felt on my run this afternoon!  Of course that was during a small decline.  It seems when it's down hill...even a little it's so nice and that's when I always think to myself "I love to RUN"...not always the same thought when I am running UP a hill!  Actually it's the very opposite feeling, but let's stay positive!  I haven't run during the weekend due to sitters, busy schedule and it just couldn't happen, but today was my lucky day.  A few weeks ago my long run was 7 miles and it wasn't that easy.  I had just started running seriously again after taking some time off and was doubting if I could get into it again.  Training is everything and gives you so much confidence as a runner.  I had a great run that was easy and it even included MILE LONG HILL and NICE HILL.  It's amazing what a difference a few weeks can make!  Will I feel the same way when I get into my high miles for marathon training?  That is the BIG question?

2.14.10 Stats:
Miles: 7.05
Pace: 10:17
Time: 1:13
Calories lost....917!

899.57 - 7.05 = 892.52 miles left to run in 2010

Ok so I like pictures and since this is my running blog I post pictures of myself after my run!  Plus I really wanted to show you my cool BONDI BAND!  This was the first time I got to wear it on a run and I love it more than I thought I would.  I wasn't sure what I would think, but have read so many GREAT reviews about them I thought I should try one out and NOW I'm sold!  It's nice having a light weight, not too tight head band that covers my ears!  I love fun, new running products!

I think you'll be just as happy running when the miles pick up - you'll be running farther than ever and that's fun! Cute hair band!

Love your before and after run pics - what a great idea! Mile-long hill? Kudos for tackling and conquering that. I am a self-diagnosed hill-o-phobe - but suppose I can't avoid them forever. Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to following you :)
