Big Sur Soon
I ran 8 1/3 miles in the rain today. It was cool at first (62*) because I was wet, but it didn't take long for me to start sweating. I ran four faster miles in the middle of the run - fun! The rain was great because it cooled me off, but I was glad I had my cap and sunglasses on to keep the rain out of my eyes.
My plan for the Big Sur marathon is to run each mile looking forward to what the next mile will bring in the way of ocean views, cows and even a grand piano!
It's really difficult for me to guess what my finishing time might be, but I ran a 4:05 in the January Houston marathon and if you add 20 minutes to that (because of the hills) you get 4:25. Taper nerves? Not yet! I'm just so excited to get started on our vacation to California!
That's a picture of our lemon tree - it came with the house we moved into last fall. Until a friend spotted the one and only lemon it produced, I didn't know what it was. And when life hands you one lemon, make lemon bars! The bars were especially good because of that lemon! The tree has flowers on it now and I'm hoping for two lemons this year! Maybe three!
