Still not really adjusted to having to be up early for school & then sitting in class all day... the urge to snooze hits as soon as we pull out of the parking lot.

Day 316

I Ran It Out with Mel and Kris today out at White Rock Lake. They are training for the Chicago Marathon on 10/10/10 and have never run more than 16 miles before this morning. We started at 5:15 AM, and covered 18 miles in beastly hot temps, going through two coolers of ice and gallons of gatorade & water in the process. We also had way more fun than any three runner chicks should have! I love my runner friends!!

She waits for me when I get back from my morning runs. It's less that she cares about me and more than she's waiting to be fed...

Day 295

The focus at practice right now is preparing for Outdoor Nationals in Colorado Springs, Colorado, next week, so the team spent a lot of time working on outdoor standing starts instead of the usual indoor down starts.
