I've been tagged!

My super-duper running and blogging buddy Lisa tagged me as a Rockin' Girl Blogger. Sweet!! So now I shall "tag" five other women who are awesome runners/bloggers and good people. Feel the love!! ;-)

First, there's
TX Runner Girl. I honestly don't know how she juggles everything!! Work, school, her young daughter, running. She is modern-day Superwoman!!

Next, I tag Sonia. This girl runs A LOT! I mean, I've read about her doing 20-mile training runs like it was nothing. Seriously, I am impressed!!

Then there's Laurel. She is now training for a marathon and recently did a 16-mile training run. And she lives in Florida, so she has to deal with heat and overwhelming humidity, yet she still keeps running!! Amazing!!

Another one who motivates me is Mary Christine. She's currently training for Tri for the Cure, a women's marathon. She's going to rock it, I just know!!

Last, but certainly not least, is my sister-in-law Becky. She doesn't have a blog (that I'm aware of), but she recently finished a 5K in Austin, TX, where it was about 95 degrees at the time (seven in the evening!). She has also taken up cycling and has signed up for swimming lessons so she can do a triathlon in the future. Oh, AND she's a Ph.D. candidate at University of Texas. And she's also gone skydiving, something I don't think I will EVER be brave enough to do!!

So there you go! :-)

Today's stats:
Run (treadmill, due to weather)
Distance: 3.6 miles
Time: 41:57
Pace: 11:39 minute/mile


Tim and I went running again tonight. We did the same one-mile stretch we did on Monday, but this time I forgot my Garmin so I don't know how long it took us. He ran the whole way, though (we broke it into two runs of 1/2 mile each, with a walk break in between). Looks like he's on his way!

Tonight's stats:
Run: one mile
Time: Don't know

Great runs on the 'mill and outside even if you forgot the Garmin. This must be the "forget the Garmin" week, I did it too on Tuesday.
