58 miles in August.

619.31 miles since May 22, 2010.

The Disneyland Half Marathon is on Sunday. I’m super excited! And a little nervous! Still having a bit of a shoe issue like my first half. But I think I’ve got a good solution. I’ve got a fun new skirt and a tank top! Here’s a picture of the skirt and the fabric I bought. I haven’t taken a picture of the skirt that KB made out of it.

And here’s a picture of my new shoes.

If you look closely, you might notice that my left ankle is a little swollen. I’m not real sure what my issue is, but it’s been swollen often.

And here’s a video of me crossing the finish line at the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in January. Just because I think it’s fun. I’m in the pink shirt and black & white skirt on the right side of the screen.

I did get 13.13 miles in once and then we went shopping. I wasn’t nearly as sore as I was after our half marathon in January. And we did 10 miles a few times. Our goal this time is to visit the Disneyland Theme Park on Sunday, after our half marathon and a shower. And maybe a nap.
