Nine miles @ 8:22 pace for my Tuesday morning!
And now let’s talk about something that has me still shaking with excitement from…
A few weeks ago, my friend Bethany sent me the link to something she did earlier this year. She WON a trip to Spain to run the marathon through City Sightseeing. She told me to apply, and so I did…
And then yesterday I received the email that I won! We are going to Budapest, Hungary. I still cannot believe it. Andrew was already able to get work off, and the kids can stay with family while we are gone. I have never run an international race, let alone a marathon.
I have no idea what my plan is quite yet with St. George (they are a week apart) ahhh, but I will certainly be doing this one now. I’ll find out more details soon!
Andrew has five weeks to get ready for this marathon. He ran eight miles yesterday, so he is on track. Before he met me, he did a marathon where his longest run leading up to the race was ten miles, so he isn’t too stressed about it. He wants to get up to 18 miles before this marathon, and I know he can.
We’ve entered the sweatshirt-to-school season! Tuesdays are now my favorite days because I get to go to school with Skye and help in her classroom.
Beck and I made it to the park, too.
Dinner before 5 pm is a very normal thing for us during soccer season. Nobody can wait until after the games to eat.
We love these TJ’s meatballs.
Andrew brought home pumpkin bread. I’ve been so excited for this.
It was a good night for a good night at soccer but Beck was ready to go home!
Marathoners–> What is typically your longest run before a marathon? Have you ever done one where your longest run was lower than what most people do?
Has anyone been to Hungary? Tell me everything!
Ever done an international race?
Feelings on pumpkin baked goods?
