Thanks for your kind words of encouragement pnkrckpixikat For me, I don't want to suck the fun out of the challenge so I'll need to find the right balance between doing mileage activities/exercise that I love and raising the bar for myself. In the past I've gotten so caught up in the goal that I forgot all about the fun which robs me of some of the experience.

I really appreciate LovelyLeah for creating this challenge and everyone here who is working so consistently on getting in their miles. Folks seem to be having a great time with it. It never occurred to me to think about all the miles I walk, run, etc in terms of a marathon. And quite honestly, this may be the only marathon I ever participate in.

Okay, the power went out yesterday because of storms and I wasn't able to update the list on my phone. I think I have everyone current but double check my list to make sure I have everything. By the way, that storm ROCKED!! I love storms and we haven't gotten too many good ones this summer so far.

You all are doing awesome, keep it up!

Isn't it great when you can get distance in by doing every day tasks!

Haha I did that today with my mom. She just couldn't find the right toe nail color in our massive bucket of nail polish so we walked to the drug store to pick one out.

I love summer storms! Did you get a good lightning show too? I remember when I was little that my parents would turn off all the lights and we'd hang out in front of the picture window in the living room to watch.

8/7 - 0.5 mile (6.1/26.2) Slowly inching my way along!

Not so much, it was more heavy, heavy rain and wind and some hail. But at my mom's work they had baseball sized hail and almost everyone's car windows were smashed in, not so awesome. Luckily she had left work shortly before that happened and had to actually pull under a bridge because of how insane it got. She had no damage, thank God. Still fun to sit on the porch and watch it and feel the storm in the air.
