Weekend Away...

Happy Monday, people!

I'm coming off a nice, relaxing visit with the family in Atlanta...and a very nice long run in the woods.  :-)



Upon arriving in Atlanta on Friday AM, my older sister picked me up and we headed straight out to the Silver Comet Trail to knock out my 9 mile long run for the weekend.  She biked while I ran, and she came back out and ran the last 1.5 miles with me.  All in all, it was a decent run...a confidence builder, for sure....I ran mile 6 in 9:31!  :-)  The weather was perfect - mostly cloudy, and about 75 degrees.  I even got a little drizzle to keep me cool!  Also, the people in Georgia!!!  Special thanks to the older gentleman along the route who cheered me on with a clap,smile and cheer!!! Love you!!!  So many "good morning's."  Wow. What a crowd. Makes it so much better and more cheerful. 

Let's see if I can pick up the pace this weekend with my 10 miler near home.  I think I'll run the Mount Vernon Trail and back Saturday AM....


I definitely was not following any sort of diet while at home...I was eating up a storm...and mostly things not necessarily all that great for me...but hey!  I was at my mama's!  I gotta eat her goodies, right?!?!

And anyway, my birthday is coming up and we were celebrating.  I had to eat a Publix cupcake and ice cream!!

If you follow me on Instagram (kgilbert730), you know that my Oiselle Flock singlet arrived last week...I was so excited to wear it, so I took it out for Friday AM's run.  :-)  

I'm so fast, I'm blurry - see??


This week, we will see about getting back on track with my diet/nutrition. Having been out of town this weekend, I haven't made my weekly grocery visit, better get on that.... I have a few easy mid-week runs, and then my long run, Saturday.  My training partner is out of town, so I'll be on my own.  

Alrighty - week 4 and under 99 days to go!!
