It has been a few weeks since I have written. I have been working 60-75 hours a week and trying to run, workout, and maintain some form of social life (which currently is nil!)

With that said, my weekly runs have really suffered. With having pneumonia and working weekends, it has been disastress to keep up... but I have been running on Saturday mornings before work (I have to get up at 5am in order to be there for the morning run! - YUCK!).

We are about to jump over the 10 mile hump as we did 10 miles last saturday (in under 2 hours) and 8 miles this saturday as a week recovery. Next week I will be in good ol West Virginia and will get to run my old route. I am VERY excited!!!! It has been over 9 months since I have burned those streets... so it will be good to be on some familiar turf without the fear of being shot, stabbed, robbed, or otherwise injured for and unknown purpose! :)

This Saturday (October 10) I volunteered at the Pinehurst Triathlon. It was awesome!!! After I complete my marathon, I think this will be my next training venture! I have the bike... the endurance (or will have) and the determination! See the pictures below.

Since I volunteered yesterady, I had to do my 8 mile run this morning... All went well except my Achilles tendon is acting up. I have iced it off and on all day today... and will take tomorrow off, so we will see if I just over worked it or what.

Well until next week -- I will try to be a little better at updating this :)

Run Hard,
