Today I ran twice. I am training for a half marathon (13.1 miles) on May 20. Caitlyn and Sue are logging miles for a Martian Marathon April 14. We all needed to get some running in today.
The Martian Marathon is specifically for kids. Each logs 25 miles before race day and then runs 1.2 miles with their group to each complete 26.2 miles or the distance of a full marathon.
Caitlyn and Sue did it last year for the first time.
I ran with each of them today (I don’t want them out there alone just yet–crossing roads and such–even if they are just side roads).
Both of my runs together only equaled 5 miles–but I got faster with each run. I have always found after mile two I get faster and hit my groove. Every mile I ran was faster than the one before.
This week has had some good mileage in it. I ran to the library and back on Tuesday–6 miles in the rain, around in circles on Wednesday–3 miles, no rain, and 5 miles today with my girls–no rain. The schedule calls for 10 miles tomorrow, but 8 or 9 is more likely…
Here are some recent pictures.

Glad to be running outside again
