Running 69!

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.  And 69 long miles for Cathy!  Yep, I'm not talking about 1969 - when man landed on the moon, I'm talking about my miles for September!  69!  (Believe me, when I googled 69 to get an image, I wasn't sure what exactly would come up!)

Last month I ran 44 miles - I'm so thrilled (and tired) to increase it by 25 this month.  It's mostly due to the increased miles I've been logging in preparation for Nike Women's Half in San Francisco in just 2 weeks!  I'm so excited about it - especially the part where the Firefighter will be handing me, in all my sweaty glory, a specially designed, just for this race, Tiffany jewelry box with a lovely commemorative necklace inside it!  I'm not sure which one I'm more excited about - the fireman or the necklace!

My next race, the first since July, will be this Sunday.  A 10K Cross City race here at home.  I'm really excited about racing again - there's just something fantastic about standing with hundreds of other runners and waiting for the starting gun!  I really do like having a race as a goal with my running.  

So, good luck to all you running bloggers out there - I've been excited to read about your races - seems like the season for half and full marathons is upon us!  May we all stay injury-free and run with joy in our hearts and footsteps!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow! Glad you found a suitable image. Whew! Congrats on all those miles.

  2. In the early 80's I ran. I ran through the 90's. Now it's 2010 and I am 68 years old. I run a little. Very little. I miss it. I loved running. I look at pictures sometimes. I remember. I added myself as a follower. May God Bless You.
