It's been hard to get into a routine but I think it will finally come together this week. I was actually able to run today! The weather has been crazy lately. It snows, hails and then the sun comes out and this is all in the same day. My treadmill is hiding in the garage with some boxes around it so that isn't available to run on yet. I need to get a gym membership soon so I can have that as an option too. Today was actually really beautiful and sunny so I went for a 4 mile run at the greenbelt. It looks like a lot of my runs will be there cause I can't run straight out my front door anymore like I could in Tacoma, there's too many busy intersections and it's not a very runner friendly area. I ran 4 miles in 33:24 with an average pace of 8:20 min/mi. I pushed it a little the last mile and ran it in 8:07. I was a little stress from missing a week of training but it was a stepback in mileage week so I know I can pick up where I left off without feeling like I'm behind.

(Ignore the ugly date stamps all over the pics, I took turned the feature off my camera so it doesn't come out again)
"The start would be at Fort Boise (elevation 2725′), 8.5 miles up Rocky Canyon and over Aldape Summit (elevation 4797′), to a 13.1 mile finish at Robie Creek campground (elevation 3065′)."

I had looked into this race last year and thought one day I want to run it. This isn't the year but I'm thinking next year...Does anyone want to torture themselves with me? Anyone??
