It's time to start move'n again. Our group started with the training last Saturday and we all discovered that we are ridiculously out of shape. Back to square one with the training. It still blows my mind away that just 5 measly months ago I ran 26.2 miles and now I struggle to get through 1. I lost it all! So, both last Saturday and today we did 6 miles of interval training. 3 minutes running / 2 minutes walking. We were struggling to breathe in the end but I remember from last time that it took me about 5 or 6 weeks to get the breathing under control. So I had hoped this past week to get at least 2 more runs in but that didn't happen because of my husbands work schedule...eh-hem...but I'm hoping to get back on track this week.
The weather was gorgeous today...60 and sunny...doesn't get any better than that. And there were loads of people at the park enjoying the weather. Good day! Good day!

Crossing the Ambassador Bridge into Canada....the sunrise view was beautiful....I took a picture of the sunrise but it didn't turn out.
The tunnel back to Detroit....the blur of the picture is how I was feeling through here...it was SO hot in there!
My saint of a friend Diane walking with me during those last few miles!
Me during the last few miles....that smile is pasted on....in fact, if you look closely you may see the glue seeping from the edges of my lips....
Me with my 3 boys at the finish.....I'm feel'n a little guilty that we didn't bring Jordyn.....
I'm editing this post to add the following picture....Traci and Kristina's picture was in today's paper...the Free Press had a whole section on the marathon.....all the names and times were listed. I was able to find and save the picture on line. Here it is.....Awesome job guys!!!!
PS.....they're the 2 on the right in the purple shirts.

MY NAME IS IN THE PAPER.......wooohhoooooo!!!!!!! Todays paper has a whole section on the Detroit Fress Marathon and on page 20R is ME....along with the names of the other 10s of thousands of participants.....get your magnifying glass out to see it...but never mind that....IT'S THERE! And I'm number 7040!
Jordyn update.....after all that it must have been something she ate because she woke up this morning happy as a clam! Can't figure out what it could've been because everything she ate was pretty benign as far as potentially containing anything bacterial....and me and the boys ate the same dinner she did..... turkey sandwiches (the turkey was bought less than 24 hours ago).....and no one else got sick. So either it was a school snack or it was a less than 12 hour flu bug....go figure! THANK YOU JESUS!

God help me........forget the prayers for weather......I can deal with cold....I can deal with hot....I can deal with thunderstorms .......or even hail......just keep me healthy till Sunday night.....
So on a scale of 1 - 10 how bad is it that my poor daughter is lying in bed miserable with the stomache flu and all I can think about is.....please God keep me healthy till this marathon is over? Go ahead....be honest.....I know.....
