Marathon Training Week 7 ~ The Oregon Marathon

I am a few days late getting week 7's update out!  With Mother's Day weekend and work, that's how it goes sometimes!  
My beautiful family at Saturday's race

Kristi and I having fun after the 10k
Last week was a low point for me in training.  It was a stressful week due to some personal stuff.  I couldn't get in the miles and workouts I wanted to get in.  My legs felt tired every time I went out for a run.  I did have some good company!  My friend Kristi ran with me after work one day!  I also ran the Uberthons Chocolatathon 10k on Saturday the 7th with some great friends and family!  It was a little warm for racing, but it was loads of pre Mother's Day fun!  I didn't PR, but I sure enjoyed the Uberthons atmosphere!  It ended up being a good tempo paced run.
Sunday Mother's Day and Long Run
Sunday, I was visiting my Mom for Mother's Day.  I took my long run out of town on a beautiful country road.

 My husband Jerry joined me for some great hill work! 
 Finally some cooler weather to run in!

This week, I am trying to embrace the warmer weather and afternoon runs.  It is what it is! The heat is my biggest weakness in training and racing. 

 As much as
Loved running into Kelly!
Good luck at Newport
next month! 
 I complain about afternoon running and the heat, this is a really good thing for me to conquer for July's Marathon.  The chances of it being warm that day is pretty high!  

I did get some exciting news today!  I have been chosen along with 19 others to be an Spandits ambassador. I will be posting more about Spandit soon!  In the meantime, check them out here!

I loved taking part in the first ever Chocolatathon with Uberthons!  They have such great races!  They are family friendly and promote being active and eating healthy!  Check them out HERE!  I would LOVE to meet you at the Uberthons Spring Half on May 28th!  If a half marathon isn't' for you, there will also be a 5k and a 10k!  You can walk or run!  Don't miss out!
