Today I was tired.  So tired that instead of running in the morning like I usually do I waited until this evening.  I headed out right before the sunset, and it was a nice change of pace to run at a different time of the day.  It is soooo beautiful here.  I love watching the seasons change, and the mountains here in the distant are breathtaking.

I also bought a new few songs tonight with the iTunes giftcard I won from Sarah, and I loved having some new tunes!! :)  I didn't run as many hills tonight, but I did a few.  Overall I felt strong, and I really love that I'm getting in a lot of mileage this week.

Miles: 5
Time: 54 minutes 45 seconds

Miles this Week: 13

  1. Hi Nikki, I just found your recipe blog through Meredith's and luckily made it over to your running blog! I've been so inspired by reading your posts - I am actually running my FIRST 1/2 marathon this Sunday and I am so glad I came across your blog and the bible verse you found to carry you through your upcoming race! I hope you don't mind if I become a follower :)

    My blog is private (b/c I'm in graduate school becoming a clinical psychologist and didn't want any clients to randomly find me!) but if you want to know more about me or read my blog you can email me at and I'd be happy to add you!

    Thanks again for being so inspiring!

  2. I love the verse your friend gave you... I just got caught up on your blog and keep it up! You are going to do great at the race! I was thinking I might consider volunteering for the Blue Ridge -- then I could cheer you on while helping the race. :)
