Running

I ran 10 miles on Friday.

10 MILES!

I'm training for a half marathon {London's Run} along with my niece, both of my sisters, my brother, my brother-in-law and possibly my sister-in-law. It's awesome to be doing such a big thing with so many members of my family. It's going to be amazing.

Now it's like no big deal that we ran 6 miles tonight when a few weeks ago, 6 was a hard run for me. It's such a great feeling.

And not only the running part but I have been trying to make better health choices along with is because they all go together and it's been great. I haven't had any soda in 3 going on 4 days {which if you know me, is a lot} and I've been drinking more water and gatorade/powerade. Also, not eating foods that I know make my stomach hurt and trying to be healthy.

It feels good. Literally.

That's awesome Bekah! You and Alyssa should come up to Portland this summer and run the 8K midsummer meltdown with me...it's my first run I'm going for after Addie is born. It's a nice summer run!
