My little family came and brought me water (and ibuprofen because I'm still struggling with my shin) about three miles from the end. Bean just learned to ride without training wheels a few days ago, so the girls love riding along with me on their bikes! These are some of my favorite running moments.
I got in 12 miles and decided that was enough for this week's long run. My shin was sore and my body felt tired overall, so I listened to my body and cut my planned 16 short.
Saturday morning the family and I hung out at the finish line of Janice's first 100 mile race. She is an amazing example of what you can do when you have a dream and the drive and belief in yourself to make your dreams come true.
My girls made signs and were so excited to cheer her on. I love all the things running teaches my girls, purely through the examples of other people.
On the way home, we decided to take a little detour so I could go for a run while the hubs and my girls went rock hunting, one of their favorite things. I ran seven miles, surrounded by some of Utah's most beautiful scenery, and my girls had lots of success finding rocks to add to their collections.
Weekly running/exercise recap for March 16-22:
- 4 runs, 32 miles
- 2 elliptical workouts, 19 miles
