{ so now I feel like a slacker }


So, a mommy (Paula Radcliffe) won the NYC marathon in 2 hours and 23 minutes. Yes that is 26+ miles. And yes, that's 5 minute miles give or take. Now, I couldn't run a 5 minute mile if I was being CHASED by a MOUNTAIN LION...not even one...not ever. But 26, 5 minute miles just blows me away. Another famous mommy ran the race at a bit more my pace. So, all in all that's pretty darn good running motivation...So, I am going to go for a run today!

Yeah, run, run, run! I know what you mean about her time, though. And I thought mine was pretty good! Yikes.

Have a great day!

You couldn't pay me to run around in something that looks like a bathing suit...and 5 minute miles - that's just insane. I run like 12 min. miles. she is more than 2x as fast as me. jeez...
