If You Have To Ask....

I know that I am suppose to be a "Mommy Blogger" and write about all the cute little things that my kids do, but over the last several years, running has become a part of who I am, so I will continue to include blogs about it.  I just can't leave out something that is so important to me. 
 
So anyway....if you are new to my blog, you may not know that I am currently training for my 2nd Half-Marathon.  It has been a challenge to squeeze training runs into my crazy busy life, but I have made time for it, and I am so glad that I have!
 
Today was President's Day...which meant a holiday from school...whoop whoop!  Since I didn't have to work, I was able to fit in a longer run.  The weather was absolutely perfect for running!  I was able to try out my new running skirt.  If you didn't read about my wardrobe malfunction with my last running skirt.....feel free to catch up on it HERE.
 
My new skirt worked out great this time and I felt sassy and girly while I was pounding out the miles.
 

And I like the white one better than my old black one anyway....so whoop whoop for my new skirt!

I was able to run 10.36 miles today and stayed on pace to beat my current personal half marathon time.  I was totally pumped about that!

I finished my run today sweaty, thirsty, dry lipped, achy, and with blisters on my toes and a toe nail that had pulled loose from my big toe......


...And I was all smiles!

I found this photo today and fell in love with the quote on it......

I am one of those people who would ask why! I can't stand to run, but admire people like you who do it!

I totally get you! I'm not currently training for a half, but I hope to do another in the fall. When is your race?

Way to go -- keep it up!
