There have been a few things I keep forgetting to tell you...which I'm sure you can all appreciate...
First...I LOST my first toenail! Yes, yes it's true! I had a blister under my little toenail after my marathon and it was slightly black...I kind of liked it (that's not weird at all, right...RIGHT!) because it's the simple things, like losing a toe nail that make you feel like a real runner. This did happen a couple of months ago...but I just forgetting to tell you the EXCITING news!
Second...917 miles! Yah you read that right...I'm almost to 1,000 miles for 2010. I have strictly only counted running for my miles. I am so excited and I think my goal will be to hit 1,000 by the end of October. Thanks Mel, aka Tall-Mom for this challenge! It has been so much fun to track my mileage and I'm shocked that I'm actually going to achieve it. Putting a goal out there that seems unachievable is so much fun to overcome and actually do it. Goals to push us to go somewhere is so beneficial. Running a Marathon proved that...but running a 1,000 miles is very exciting too!
Third...I think I am one of the shortest in the bunch. I know I'm not tall, but I don't think I'm that short either...but after looking at so many of the pictures from last weekend...I feel SHORT! Seeing people in the bloggyworld, through their blogs...you really have no idea of there height. You were all probably thinking I was like..6'4" or something...right? Ok so maybe not, but this weekend I felt short. Can I get a WOOT-WOOT for short runners...anyone, anyone? Calling all SHORT, bloggy runners! I am actually 5'4-1/2"...if you were wondering and wanted the facts!
I realized in my last post I didn't mention how AWESOME it was to meet so many bloggers. We have a great bunch of local bloggers and they are pretty amazing. At our bloggy dinner Saturday night we went around the room and made introductions and it was so great to hear from everyone and hear some of their personal stories. Thank you for all of you who were able to make it. I hope we can do more of those in the years to come. I hope to be able to talk to more of you and get to know you better. So when is the next race?
PORTLAND MARATHON!!!! I'm thinking of heading down to Portland to see some of you who are running. Is there a dinner planned? I thought I read something about something happening? Is there anyone else spectating? I would love to be a part of anything that is happening.
