It's a beautiful day!!

Wow! Today is just gorgeous!!! The sun is shining, it's not freezing cold and, best of all, there's no rain!!! I wasn't the only runner taking advantage of this great weather. I passed by a handful of other runners on my jog today, but I was the only one pushing a giant jogging stroller filled with kids. ;)

Even with the stroller of death, I managed a good run. I decided to extend it by .35 miles today, although I didn't know how much farther it was until I got home and traced it on mapmyroute.com. I actually went a bit faster today, as well, which makes me feel more confident going into my three-mile race (only nine days left!!). I am planning a three-mile jog on Saturday to test the waters, then next week I will only be jogging two days before race day. I don't want to burn myself out before I get to the starting line!

Today's stats:
distance: 2.35 miles (once again, not including warm-up and cool-down)
time: 28:32
average 12:09 minute/mile

I found your blog via JavaMom's. Welcome to the world of blogging! And, welcome back to running. It sounds like you are ready for your debut race next week! I can't wait to read all about it. :-)
