Fresh Cherry Pie!!

So - my fiance is a helicopter pilot and his last contract was drying the cherry trees so that the cherries wouldn't split and be ruined. After his last contract the owners of the farm gave him a huge box of cherries. We realized that it was too many for us to eat especially since he doesn't really like cherries so he wouldn't be eatting them. We decided to make cherry pie. such a good idea... I used the recipe from the Better Homes ad Garden Cookbook.

It turned out so good that we made 2 extra pies for his boss and the mechanic at the shop.

easy recovey

So today is a day after my first big long run and overall my legs felt great. So I decided to do a nice and easy 3 mile run with our standard schnauzer, Forest. I don't think that Forest was really up for the run. He doesn't do the greatest in the morning.

Not much else new today... still eatting leftover pasta and the cookies, which are delicious!!

Starting training for a marathon

So today I decided to get serious and start training for a marathon. I am not sure which one yet. I just figured I would get my miles up. So today I did an 8 mile run. It is interesting running in a new area where you only know some of the roads. Well, I started off with the usual 3 mile loop but veered off the path to the main road to try and extend it more. While I was running I was thinking, "if I could do 6 I would be happy with that but 8 or 10 would be great." At 6 miles I felt pretty good and decided to double back towards Nike and add the extra 2 miles to make it 8. I am glad that I stopped at that. I didn't eat enough and no GU with me, so I started to get lightheaded. Everything is ok... because here I am writing this. Just needed to stop and drink more.

No special dinner tonight... still eatting leftovers from friday.

Happy Birthday Eliza Jane...who is 2 today!
