|Can you see me? That's how far ahead Ang was.|
I ran a whole 10 miles on Monday including the horrendously long Torrey Pines hill. I felt fantastic, just a bit tired by the end. It's been so long since I've covered that distance because of tendinitis issues, and I was thrilled to be out there for more than 60 minutes. That's when it just starts to get good!

Today, in more running news, I printed off my Long Beach Marathon training plan. According to Runner's World Smart Coach, I am on par to run a 3:21. I am not as confident as RW seems to be, but who knows. I was also completely distrustful of my goal pace for Surf City and ended up blowing my goal out of the water, so anything is possible! I also followed a RW Smart Coach plan for Surf City and was very pleased with the results. I highly recommend it. The best part is, it only has me running 4 days a week, which kept me injury-free in the past. 5 days of running each week proves to be too much for this old body of mine.
I am just coming back from a four day weekend. It's rough transitioning back to real life after four whole fabulous days off. We spent the first half of our weekend in LA with some friends and the latter half running around San Diego and doing the typical Memorial Day BBQ-related stuff.

I head to St. Louis next week for my best friend's wedding (remember that movie?) and as the Maid of Honor, it is my duty to give a toast. Any suggestions? This is my first wedding speech and I don't want it to go like this:
