10 miles done

I little glimmer of hope that I might survive a half. The plan was to go to the Seattle waterfront and run the 10 there - a  5 mile out and back run. The weather had another plans. It wouldn't have been such an issue but we had planned to push Evie in the stroller and she is just getting over being sick, we didn't think 2 hours in a damp stroller was the best idea. Instead I hit the treadmill with Netflix queued on Season 3 of Nip/Tuck off I went. At the 5 mile mark I was thankful I was on the treadmill as I could just run inside and hit the bathroom. Then back to the garage to finish! I used Shot Blok and water as fuel for the run and I am starting to really lke the Shot Bloks.

As soon as I finished my 10 MILES, I stepped outside and of course the sun was coming out and the rain had stopped. I think maybe next week we need to find a sitter for the little one and not hope that the weather man is wrong.


  1. Great run!! And I'm a huge fan of Clif Shot Bloks too! They are yummy. :)

  2. i'm amazed you did the 10 on a treadmill. that takes serious dedication, i'm proud of you :)

  3. Yea, 10 miles on the treadmill was tough - but it worked, I fgiure I have another 10 scheduled for next weekend so I will have to make sure to do that outside.

  4. 10 miles on the treadmill? Very impressive!
    I have never done more than about 4 miles on it, I just hate it.


    And you are absolutely going to finish that half, no doubt about that.
