The last 4 months.....

have been fully of running, pacing, and racing.  Details are probably not necessary at this point so bullets it is!
•ran the Hippie Chick 1/2 2 weeks after Eugene for fun, and it was!!
•raced The Helvetia 1/2 for a hard effort run.  It was fun, I felt strong and was 2nd female overall.  Did not PR but ran a big course PR on that very hilly course
•was able to support a dear friend from my team in the Vancouver USA marathon.  Ended up running 11 miles with her and was such a rewarding experience.  Loved it!!  So fun to see someone work so hard and accomplish their goal.
•was able to support another dear friend in her first marathon on the 4th of July(the foot traffic flat in Portland) another great day!  So many of my teammates out there, the energy was amazing.  So grateful that I will get to be in Boston with so many friends this next year.
•started seriously training for the St. George marathon on October 5th.  5 weeks away now, how did that happen? Yes, there is a goal but I will save that for another post. I will try to make it soon!
•raced the Hobble Creek 1/2 in Utah almost 2 weeks ago and set a new PR of 1:22:33.  Worked for it!  I felt that altitude on the hills.  I was sore!!
•my husband is running a marathon in 4 weeks, no it was not totally my idea:). Hoping he enjoys it!!

That's it for now, promise to be back here soon as I need to process my thoughts before St. George.
