Last week, Roger and I had a disagreement on how many miles our training plan has been calling for. We are attempting to train for a marathon for later on the spring, but he had us on the Half Marathon training plan by mistake. I told him this last week, and he was adamant that he was correct and that we were doing the right miles... then after checking, he realized that HE WAS WRONG! and I was right! My reward for being right, was running longer distances!
On Saturday, I was feeling very disappointed and sad at the news of the Muslim Ban, set forth by the President. It just kept hitting me on waves, and I would cry, then be angry, then cry again. I felt impotent, and so useless. So finally around 3 I went for a 6 mile run. During the run, whenever I felt like I was going to start crying, I would run faster. If the feeling of anger hit me, that naturally made me run faster. My body felt less anxious after.
So very much Loving!
After the run, my siblings and I hit the Chambersburg Ice Fest. We walked, we had coffee, and tacos. It was great to spend time with them!

On Sunday, we did something different. I had seen there was going to be a trail run along side with Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run in Lancaster. I was torn for a little while, because this was my Zumba Sunday, but after triple checking my options, I chose the trail run. I mean, how often can one say that one ran with a New York Times Best Selling author of an awesome book, right?

The run was very hilly, there was a huge climb, but the park was beautiful ! and the run was amazing. I ran along Mr. McDougall for about 30 seconds, then we lost him, when he went to run with the 5 mile group.

I was really hungry after the run! so hungry, I ordered cheese fries at Chillis and later got ice cream at the grocery store.
Life In Parts by Bryan Cranston. The First chapter had me in the verge of tears!
