Not a whole lot of time today to dedicate to my blog. Tuesday is my busy work day and I didn't have much planned ahead of time, but I did want to give you a few brief tidbits nevertheless.
* I ran eight miles Saturday, two on Sunday but none since then. I won't get a chance to run until Wednesday morning. I'm hoping to run Wednesday through Sunday for a total of about 25 miles. We'll see how my heel feels, though. It's been acting up a little the last few days.
* My next race won't be until Oct. 17 (Long Beach Half Marathon) so technically I'm not training for a race right now. However, I will definitely want to hit training hard by the end of this month, particularly speedwork. I want to get faster and will want to run a strong race that day so I'm looking forward to getting settled into a routine that includes some speedwork.
* Monday was, of course, my birthday. Yay. Thanks for all the well-wishes. I hope to make age 35 memorable. I ran two marathons at age 34 and I hope to run three marathons at age 35 - Surf City (Feb. 6), LA (March 20) and another one, possibly Salt Lake or San Diego or something else next summer.
* Lastly, here's a sneak peek at Wednesday's post:
No, it's not about swimming or water safety, but rather a memorable day for my beloved Kennedy.
