Step-Sis and I before the Seattle Half '09
Yesterday I went for a 6 miler with my awesome Step-Sister. We ran all along Greenlake and the surrounding areas. If you ever get a chance to run around the lake, do it! Its fairly flat, beautiful and has great sidewalks so you wont bust your ankles. We took it a bit farther on one of her favorite routes and included a few long (but not too steep) hills.

It is seriously an awesome run. You not only go past the lake, but there is a zoo too! Where else can you run and have the possibility to hear lions, tigers and bears? (And probably chickens, but that's beside the point!!)
Still feeling sick and drained of energy. I have the Bainbridge Island Half this weekend, which is supposed to be much more difficult than the Mercer Half or the Seattle Half, so I am not thinking I can get my long-awaited sub-2 half. You never know, but I'm dragging in my 6 mile runs. I'll be sure to not take any cold medicine for this one though!
Also, has anyone read this book?
My Step-Sis started reading the Complete Book of Women's Running by Dagny Scott Barrios and has highly recommended it. I flipped through a few of the pages so far, and it looks to have a ton of useful tips, stories and information. Anyone read this or know of another great running book?
Happy running :)
