Saturday Evening Run over the Narrows!

I love where I live, on a SUNNY DAY!  Yah we get a lot of rain, but when the sun is's A-Mazing.  Chelsea was coming to T-Town (Tacoma) for the weekend and had 8-10 miles on the schedule and needed a T-towner to do it with...that's where I came into the picture, or should I say the RUN? Well you know what I mean!  After a rainy week I was thrilled when Saturday turned out looking like this!  Don't let the clear sky fool you wasn't WARM at all, but I will take the SUN with cold any day over rain.
The Tacoma Glass Museum!

I live over there...can you see it?

Met Chelsea at her mom's house where she grew up!  Got to meet all the dogs and then we were on our way.  It was fun to chat since I hadn't ever run with just Chelsea.  We ran by her high school and then onto the same trail I had run when I ran the Tacoma Narrows Half Marathon a few years ago.  I didn't realize we were going to run over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge...that was cool.  If you ever get the chance to do it.  It wasn't that windy until we turned around to go back over the bridge.  The views were spectacular with the sun and the clear sky's!  Neither of us had brought are cameras...bad bloggers, we know!  They are etched in our minds now!  We headed back home and faced a hill that I didn't like when I ran the Narrows Half, but this time it wasn't as bad since I knew what to expect. 
After our run!  The best part of a run!

We chatted the entire 8 miles about running, family, food and everything else there is to talk about!  We passed another school of Chelsea's...her preschool!  Wow that seems like forever ago!  How cool to grow up in the same place your entire life...I love that.  Before we knew it we were a few blocks from the house and we pushed it all the way to the end.  It was a great evening for a run. 

I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to run since it has been a busy few days and I don't typically run in the evenings and I was tired, but I'm so glad I did.  Thank goodness for friends and running with them because I don't think I would be running much at all lately.  I'm always more happy after a run with friends and time you get when you run with them...great way to get to know each other more! 

We can tell who didn't have to drive home!

Hmm...WE really are THAT AWESOME!

Silly face...

THANK FOR A GREAT RUN Chels! Awesome job on a DISTANCE PR! You are going to do great at the RnR Seattle Half Marathon!

Boston Envy!

If your a runner you can totally understand, especially if you aren't reading this from BOSTON!  Any runner knows the significance of BOSTON!  It's not just a CITY but a place you dream about as a runner.   I never thought about The Boston Marathon much before I became a runner, but the minute I was a runner I read about it, watched the Marathon live for the last few years, I'm addicted.  Through out the year I think about it and wish to be there, but as it gets closer and friends start talking about it and posting pictures of Boston...I really get BOSTON ENVY! 

I'm so excited for my friends running tomorrow morning and can't wait to Cyber STOCK them!  Amazing how you can be so anxious for people while they are running a marathon and that will be me tomorrow.

GOOD LUCK, MEL!  So excited for her and thrilled she is in BOSTON right now! 

There are so many more out there...GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!

Chelsea and I decided we are for sure spectating next year!  It's on...who's coming with us?

"My Run"

Waiting for the movie to start! 

The best part of the evening was hanging out with my friends/running buddies.  We always have some good time and many laughs.  We met up for dinner before the show and caught up on all our lives happenings and then headed over to the movie.  The movie wasn't as great as I hoped it would be but I was still glad I watched it.  Funny to see what people wore for running in the late 90's which I didn't realize was so long ago...but after seeing all the crazy styles in the movie it was a little confusing because it seemed like it was from the 80's.  I graduated high school in 1997 and to me it seems like a few years ago...guess not!  As a runner you feel like you know some things about running...what to wear, what not to wear, what to eat, what not to eat and so on.  It was shocking to see what this guy wore and what he ate or didn't eat for that matter!  Maybe times have changed?  Maybe I think I know a lot about running and I really don't?  Just funny to watch some things.

This mans journey is incredible and all that he set out to do.  I love when people go after something that they are passionate about.  He did something he believed in and made it happen.  It was such a difficult thing to do day after day!  Wow!  He ran for a cause and brought attention to something dear to his heart.  I think a lot of us our passionate about something but are never sure what to do with it or how to go about it.  I'm always inspired when people go "AFTER" it!  They don't just sit and dream about it, but they MAKE IT HAPPEN! 

KerrieJamie, Chelsea, Mel and ME!

Oh and by the way...all those ladies in that picture are running the Seattle RnR!  In case you were wondering!

Here we are again!  Oh's Friday!  I was so unmotivated today to run and was so happy I had 4 other ladies to get me out for my run.  Having a group to run with really changes things for the better.  Don't you all agree?  Ok I won't go on and on since my last post was all about running with my running group!  But I did have to show you the fun pictures from our run.  We missed our friends who couldn't make it this week.  Our plan was to do 5 or 6 but at the end of our run we had ran over 7 miles and that is not an April Fools joke! 

Some very wet shoes!  So grateful that these feet take me so far!

We clean up well!  Me and D (Diana) after our run after we were all cleaned up!  A little different then our after run photo when we were soaked!
