I am trying to get my mile up so I will be ready for the Amica Marathon in Newport, RI in mid-October. I did 19 miles last Sunday and hopefully will get in a 21 mile run next weekend. This will be my second full marathon. I only trained to 21 miles for my first back in May. I really want to get beyond that for this one.
Two weeks after the Amica I have the Marine Corps Marathon. So my October is a little marathon heavy. I will probably throw in a few shorter distances after that before heading to Disney World in January for Marathon Weekend! So that is marathon 2, 3, 4, and 5 will be Rock 'n' Roll USA in DC in March. I am going to try and be up for all this running, because I certainly have signed myself up for quite a bit of it!
Now that being said...back to today's run...the photo blog! I had a beautiful mid-day 10 mile run on the East Bay Bike Path along the northern shore of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island! I love going for longer runs on holidays. It gives you time to think.

All I could think was who needs a zoo!

The mate and youngster were not far away.

|arches and lines - greens and blues - water and shy|
The balance of it all makes me happy.

but more often they are from the north or south
and watch out for the winds from the east!
