Anyway, I have been doing fabulously well! I'm still running injury-free and regularly and loving every mile. And I just had the most fantastic weekend ever! The weather was perfect and I had so much fun with so many friends. I felt rejuvenated after my three glorious days off. My days were filled with yoga, coffee dates, a birthday party, walks, runs, wine, an adorable baby and the great outdoors. I savored every minute of my weekend because I knew it would be gone in a flash.

I am up to a 12 mile long run and shooting for a 14 miler this weekend. I am ignoring my run plan because it had me scheduled to run 14 miles two weeks ago. My run plan has no idea that I was just injured. So instead, I have modified the long run portion and am safely increasing my distance. The marathon is still months away so I am not getting my panties in a bunch over pushing back a 14 and 16 miler. I have learned that the longs runs aren't as crazy important as I once thought. They're critical, but I don't need to do five 20 milers to run a marathon. Am I right, people?
I was so motivated to get out there for my long run this weekend after watching Amy Hastings earn a spot in London. It was incredible to watch. She gave it absolutely EVERYTHING she had! I had goosebumps just watching. I was disappointed when she didn't finish in the top 3 at the marathon, so it's great to see her earn a place elsewhere. How great is this picture? I am so inspired. Go Amy!

What Olympic sport are you most excited to watch?
All of the women's sports!
Who are you rooting for in the women's marathon?
I love them all! That question is too hard for me.
