I have to admit I am primarily a road runner. I don't know why. I love hiking and I love being out in nature, but when I run I usually head for a road or paved trail. I know trail running is good for me because it engages other muscles and requires that I slow down. This particular trail is pretty well groomed and not very technical, but it is really beautiful.

I told my friend and cat sitter the Half Marathon would be an anniversary trip and she said "you want to run 13 miles for your anniversary?"
I said, "no, I want to run 15 for 15 years, but a half is 13.1." Hubby and I were discussing where he could meet me on the course. We are going to pull out the course map and make a plan. Looks like more heat and humidity for us this week with afternoon and evening rain. Peachtree is just 4 days away! Can't wait. Hopefully no storms, they have been largely confined to the later parts of the day so I am hopeful. First race in over a month and the most fun you can have on the Fourth! Can't believe half the year is behind us. because of that stomach flu I had 98 miles this month. I am planning to extend my running streak for a while since I feel okay. I would like to go at least 2 more weeks since I had to take June 8th off because of the stomach bug. That would still have me completing the full Summer Challenge, just a little late.
