So, this post is a bit of a pat on the back for Brandis and me (lame, I know), but we ran 18 miles this morning!!! Wowsers! {that may not sound too bad, but when you think about the fact that we ran half way into Ahwatukee from Brandis's house or that we ran through three citites - Gilbert, Chandler and Phoenix...it sounds insane to me!} Even better is that it was surprisingly easy! We ran just under 11 minute miles the whole way and only took a few stops to eat some of these great inventions....honestly...why couldn't we have discovered these 4 months ago?!!


We both also invested in one of these guys last night...
So, we were pretty stinking excited and now we are pumped and ready for the marathon three weeks from today!
Bring it on St. George!! :) (this is us on my camera phone where Chandler and Ray meet up in Ahwatukee)

Awesome! You and Brandis are amazing and you'll be so ready for the St George marathon in a couple weeks! Keep up the good work--the two of you are inspiring to the rest of us couch potatoes.

First, congrats on the run...I don't know how in the heck you expect me to run with you guys. Second, stay away from the camera phone pictures as they seem to distort you foreheads...almost like a fun house mirror.

You're Amazing and you TOTALLY deserve a pat on the back! It's awesome that you're in such great shape! I'm jealous! You're going to do great at St. George!

Not lame at all- you deserve more than a pat on the back. I am beyond impressed- you guys are gonna rock the marathon.

I think I can run MAYBE 2 11 minute miles, so basically you guys are amazing! That is way longer than I ever could/would want to run!

Crystal said...

Way to Go! That is great! I would love to run a marathon, or even a half. But for now I will just push my kids in the double running stroller everyday wishing you luck in your race!

Way to go, Tarah! You are gonna kick trash on this marathon! What an accomplishment for you!!!

Wow I can't believe you two. Thats pretty amazing. You have to promise me that after I have my next baby you will force me to enjoy running because I have never been a runner ever and I really wish I was.
