Happy National Running Day!!You have to love a day that celebrates running. I am grateful every day for all that running has given me and I am proud to say that I AM A RUNNER! :) (Today is also my beautiful Amanda's 10th birthday. And the sun is shining. Yay!)

I love love love this quote. I have seen it in several places lately on the internet and it really sums up the way I am feeling about my running and training, and the excitement I have to raise the bar and have a new plan. I have definitely been progressing in endurance and in my speed and I successfully finished three marathons in four and a half months following Hal Higdon's training plans, but with my training for the Top of Utah Marathon just around the corner, I decided to shake things up a bit.
She put together a great training plan for me. She asked me about what I have done, what I have liked, what I haven't, what kind of mileage I like, how many days I wanted to run, what kind of goals I have, etc. etc. She listened to what I had to say and then also asked me to trust her and try something new, so that is what I am doing. :) She also said she thinks I can run a 3:39. At first it sounded crazy to me, but I am trusting her and feeling confident in myself.
