You might be wondering what happened to me in September since I've been fairly consistent about updating this blog. Well the second week I took some time off to enjoy the last warm days of summer at Cape Cod, and the first week I spent preparing for our vacation.
That's me tying to capture a sunset at the bay
The rest of the month I've been training for a marathon. In addition to my weekly runs, I ran 17, 18, 19, and 21 miles on consecutive Saturdays in September. Needless to say training has left me exhausted and with little spare time for blogging. But it has all been worth it! On Saturday October 13, I will be running in the Baltimore Marathon. I actually began my training in early June and I will admit, it’s been a long, sometimes hard, and often boring four months. Hard work does pay off - I’m ready for race day and to be honest, very excited! I’ll be running with my training partner aka, my husband. We have had a lot of "together" time so If you are there and see a couple bickering at the 20 mile mark, that’s us! Not to worry, we believe in the old adage "couples that run together stay together" and its worked so far. Look for me in the Michigan visor since it's also game day - Go Blue! In honor of our
feet feat, I’m running a sale at Duncan Loves Tess from now until October 14. Use the code MARATHON and get 26% off. Yes folks, I’m doing the full marathon which is 26.2 miles! For more info on the Baltimore Running Festival check out their website here:
and congrats to all the runners participaing in the marathon, half marathon, team relays, 5K , and kids fun run! It’s going to be a great day!
