June 3: 1st run = 3 miles – treadmill, 2nd run = 3.1 miles – outside

June 2: 2.55 miles

For the past few weekends, I have been doing a two-a-day run on Sundays and I am really enjoying it. I know i won’t always be able to do this, especially when i start cranking the weekend long runs for the marathon. But, for now, I DO like it. In fact, i seem to have more energy on the 2nd run. I love my K-Swiss shoes and I’m loving some old and new tunes i’ve gotten off itunes: Lady GaGa, Erasure, Tony Bennett, and other random techno stuff! Love finding new good tunes, don’t you?

In other news, I booked my trip to Los Angeles for late June. Very excited about it! Looking forward to seeing friends and the change of scenery will be fantastic! Coming up this week, a good friend from the Bay Area is coming to visit. Been friends for 20 yrs. Can’t wait to see her and spend quality time together. She’s a gem!

I’ll end with a quote from a book i just bought: The Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell (also wrote, the Tipping Point & Blink…both I have not read)

“We are too much in awe of those who succeed and far  too dismissive of those fail”  – something to think about.

here’s a pic from one of the neighborhoods i like to run in. Cheers!
