Saturday morning my parents picked up the kids and I went out for a 19 mile run.  It wasn't easy.  The weather in the Philly area is not yet being marathon friendly as it was about 75 degrees with 100% humidity.  This week I'm scheduled to have my biggest week ever - 50 total miles with a 20 miler on Saturday.  REALLY hoping the weather cools down as they say it will.

I just went back and looked at some of my posts during my runstreak and figured out that since March I've lost 16.5 pounds.  None of my pants fit me anymore and I'm way too lazy to go buy new ones.  I'll probably just start tying them around my waist with an extension cord as my belts don't fit either.

It can't all be wedding cake

Yesterday I ran the best race of my life. A half marathon that I ran 8 minutes faster than I ever have before. I'm still kind of on an emotional high about it.

Tomorrow could be one of the longest days of my life. Kym will be undergoing surgery to remove a tumor from her parotid gland. She/we will be detailing her journey here

Praying for a full recovery.

It's your fault

Anyone still got my blog in their feeds?  If so, remember that time I live-blogged me ripping my toenails off?  Then bonked during a marathon and made you all promise to never let me do another one?  Well, I'm two and a half month out from doing my 3rd marathon, and I blame you all for not stopping me.  I guess I get a four year itch with these things.

But, this time is different I say!  I'm running about twice as many miles.  I've got twice as many kids, I'm twice as awesome, and twice of two of things I can't remember right now.  So, this is me putting it out there so I can't go back on my word.

Oh, I just remembered something else - I have twice as much fun running now.  How can you double zero fun?  Not sure... but I actually have fun running now.  I know, it's odd.
