Here is what you missed yesterday in case you didn't look up in the sky!
After Linda's classes tonight she took Chim out for a run. He did pretty well, especially since it was dark and windy. He ran for a long time with only two near tripping episodes. She dropped him back home and went out for the second 1/2 of her run. Remember, Linda is not a runner. Not ever. She has run a few times in the past, but always super slow and she would have to take walking breaks. Now she feels so great running. All her training has been on streets with names that contain the words Hill, Valley, Ford, or trail running. That means hills and different surfaces. Yesterday she ran inside on the treadmill and it felt so easy! She googled "treadmill running" when she got home and found out it is 16% easier than road running. No wonder. (All the regular runners who read this blog are going Duh! right now. It's just not something Linda ever thought about so it was surprising.)
If Chimi would go this fast during their practice runs, she would be winning marathons in no time! Tierney told her tonight that she would run with Linda in the annual Brain Tumor race she does in DC. Linda's done it for a lot of years and never was able to run the whole time. This year, they are going to both finish strong!!
