Happy Running: Tough Week

Guess what????
Chicago Bound!!!
Thanks to God I got in the Chicago Marathon through their lottery system. Chicago is my dream marathon so I am super excited and thankful!!! I ask for your prayers as I head into training for Chicago. As you can tell, my kids are just posing for this picture, they really don't know what's going on :)

 Last week training was super tough. I focused on speed but my nutrition was not on top shape. One of the highlights of my week was pushing 73 lbs of pure delight in one of my cross training walks.
A great thing to see, always. 
My long run was the most difficult run I've had in a while. I didn't eat well the night before AND it was super humid but thanks to my training buddies I made it through. My goal for this week is to be super strict with my nutrition and keep training smart. Today's cross training session was very successful. 12 days away from the 10K I am feeling thankful for all God has done and all He will do for me. 
Well, just wanted to share the good news! Happy running everyone!
