Feeling those hills

Thanks for the great run Suzie! It was definitely one of the hardest runs I have ever run, but it was an awesome feeling to know I could do it. 9 hilly miles- wow!Jeff was pretty impressed when I told him where we ran. I am still a little discouraged by my heart rate, but I am just going to keep working my butt off. Running slower has helped with my shins and I am still getting in lots of mileage. This week I am going to run a little bit later(7am) so I can run outside hopefully and just take it slow. I am going to try and get in 30 miles this week and for the rest of the year. Take care and have a good Sunday!

That WAS a tough run, but for some sick reason I can't wait to do it again! The views of Mt. Hood and the perspective of our elevation compared to the surrounding area was exhilerating! I'm going to get in my car and see where that Parrett Rd. goes... to see if there is a way back down to Sherwood that doesn't involve a 18% grade! Yikes! That was steep!

My kids are loving this white stuff falling from the sky, but all I can think of is, "This doesn't look like fun to run in!" I hope we are able to get our Wednesday run in. Do you think you'll be up for next Saturday (being Christmas Eve?). I think I will. Can't think of a better way to start off the holiday! Have a great week, M&M! (MMMmmm...I have mint M&M's downstairs calling my name! It's ok to eat those if you've run 9 miles straight uphill. :)
