    I'm back from Minneapolis. I decided to start my trip off with a bang--on Wednesday (while I was still at home) I did my "long run" which turned into "medium 5-mile run, enormous splat into the ground, 2.5 mile limp bloody and aching back to my car". I spent my glorious girl's weekend with skinned knees and hands and arms...and a gorgeous shiner on my chin.

    However, once I got there, there were some beautiful trails through the university arboretum that needed to be explored, so I got about 10 more miles in in total.

    Can't say I'm sad it's August, though. :)

    Sorry I am really sucking at being active here. It's hard for me to get into routines; please forgive me.

    I ran last night on week 4 of the C25K app and just wow! I usually am intimidated by the increase in running each new week and this was just the same. However I rocked it out! I had almost 14000 steps for my whole day! This is so great for me! I just need to stay consistent!! 4 weeks to go before the Hockeytown 5K!!!!!

    I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
