Marathon Training! Week 12

The Olympics have been such an inspiration this week. Watching these athletes following their dreams – while breaking records and earning medals – definitely raises my spirits. My long run was 16 miles this week. While it was anything but Olympic worthy, I’m proud because: 1) I didn’t trip anytime during the run (although I did drop my poor MP3 player), and 2) it was my longest run ever. Oh, and even though I may never see my picture on a box of Wheaties, I’ll always have this:

It’s actually more fitting anyway because I think a wholesome, sugary cereal is better than say, a wholesome cereal. I had never seen it before this week, and I told Husband about it. He told me that he's bought it before, and he said, “I love that cereal!” He obviously has very good taste.

Congrats on the long run - isn't that an amazing feeling? I had a long run this weekend...planned for 16 but did 20 instead (more on that later.) It was incredible thinking I had just run that ... so I'm sure you felt the same way!

16 without falling, that's awesome. So, do you get royalties for that sugary, tooth-rotting morning goodness? LOL!

Awesome run! I'm glad you find inspiration in the Olympics. I watch in amazment and then realize that I will never run that fast or that long. Some of those folks are just sub-human! But, let's keep one thing in perspective--they don't have a cereal named after them either.
