Oh boy has this been an exciting past couple of days.  Since I only go to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the weekend does not always actually seem like the weekend, but nonetheless, I always enjoy it.  Yesterday a few members of the marathon team and myself met at Panera for a run on the greenway.  I was able to run 2.75 without stopping to walk at all!  I have never, ever been able to run that far consecutively with no walk breaks.  Such a huge accomplishment.  Two goals on my fitness list are to run a 5k without stopping and run a 5k in under 30 minutes.  I am signing up for a 5k at the end of March and hopefully I will be able to mark both goals off my list with that race.

Also yesterday, I took a nice 3 mile walk with my momma on the Townsend bike trail and then did an additional 4.5 miles last night with Yvonne.  So yesterday I put in over 13 miles, so it was virtually a half marathon, only it took me all day.

Today I woke up REALLY early.  Like, before 6am early.  I drove over to Kingston to volunteer for the Knoxville Track Club’s Whitestone 30k.  That’s over 18 miles in case you didn’t know.  I was a course monitor and split timer at mile number 10.  Luckily, I had an umbrella to survive the horrendous downpour that was plagued upon us, but it was so much fun cheering on all the runners.  I even got a t-shirt which is always a plus!  Such a fun day.  Tomorrow I am filming with Missy Kane for her Fit and Fun show, then its off to the gym for Manic Monday.  Happy weekending!

My lovely sign for the 10 mile marker.

Awesome view from the top of Whitestone.

Loved the Dora the Explorer cups they had for water at the finish.

  1. Sounds like a great weekend indeed! Congrats to you on your running accomplishment! I know how much those milestones mean. 🙂 And thank you for being a volunteer. I didn't run but as a runner I know the importance of volunteers!

Say hi; don't be shy!
