Training Days

Heidi and I made a plan to run yesterday. When I went to her dorm room to pick her up, she was definitely asleep. After some time we finally got on the road ( Jack Kerouac Reference? ) It was quite a rough run; however, it was probably one of the most beautiful days, combining that with one of the most outstanding routes. Once we hit 3 miles we started getting into our rhythm. 

And then we hit the hills....

As you can see above. 

Yes, there were a lot of hills and they were definitely steep. 


we succeeded.  

We ended up running 7 miles, and meeting someone at a breakfast joint! It was definitely a hard run, but Heidi and I felt so good afterwards. Isn't that they best thing about running - the feeling that you get after you run. Four more weeks to go for our Half -Marathon. I think we can do it!

Our First Half Marathon

We have just signed up for a Half Marathon in December! We have both never done a half marathon before. Heidi and I are both a  little nervous, but mostly super excited. We can't wait to train, eat right, and pick out the best outfit to wear for a holiday run! Any suggestions?

It has been awhile since we have been in a race. The last one that the sisters did together was the Portland Race for the Roses and it was a 10K.

This is going to be a great month, as well as a challenging month, but we are both up for the challenge.
