enjoying every second of life and running



Today Rob and I did some de-cluttering work on the house and garage which meant finally saying goodbye to some more clothes. Since taking up running, Rob has lost 66lbs and I’ve lost 48lbs, so we’ve changed sizes quite a few times in the last few years. It’s scary to think that we already gave away so much and there was still this much in the house. We gave it all to good will and I’m happy about that since many of our items were barely worn.

It feels so good to de-clutter the house. 🙂 I can’t wait to tackle some more!

I did 6 Miles Easy on the treadmill. Today will be my last day of recovery from Chicago Marathon. My training for Boston Marathon starts tomorrow! It’s a very slow base build so it will still feel like a recovery phase. A change in my new plan will be that weeks start on Sundays instead of Mondays. I will share more about the plan in my next post. Until then here is how Monday – Saturday ended up.
