I didn't fall off the face of the earth.....

I've been "blog" dodging for a few weeks...but I haven't quit running! I did a bunch of 2, 3, and 4 mile runs for a couple weeks after the HM - but nothing major.

Last night I got the itch and the motivation to get out there and do a big one. I ran 10 miles and barely noticed. It's amazing what a few weeks of rest will do. I'm not even sore today which is a shocker too. My right hip has been throbbing for about a week but that's not any worse than it was. The humidity was about the only thing slowing me down last night but it was OK. Everytime I felt tired and wanted to walk, I just thought about my big sister and how I'm sure she has felt the same way and didn't stop...so I shouldn't either. : ) Thanks for motivating me without even being there, Amy! The first few miles were rough and I felt like I was a flailing (sp?) idiot that's never walked, much less ran before. After I got into my zone though things went well. I walked about a mile of it total, here and there.

That's about it for me...now I have to get busy catching up on all of your blogs!

Don't feel bad, Jill. I have been a bad blogger too. This damn thing called life keeps getting in the way!

Glad you are still running, and doing 10 miles is no small thing.

Glad to see you are still out there running. I thought maybe you finished the HM and decided that was enough...but I was hoping you were just a little busy catching up on everything that became lower priority with the half training.

Good job on the long run...I hope one day I will be able to "run 10 miles and barely notice"!
