What's Going On

(my doggy Jake)

Hey everyone!  I hope everyone has been having a great summer so far.  I just wanted to give you all an update on what has been going on lately around here.

First of all, the recent June issue of Running Times has an amazing article in it written by Jonathan Beverly that I think many of you would like.  It is called "Let The Kids Run", and it has the truth about children and mileage.  You guys should check it out, I really liked it.  Also there is a podcast available on the Running Times website where I describe my weekly training schedule.  Very weird to here my voice on a podcast!

Second, I have to say I am VERY excited.  On Saturday (June 4th) I am going to be racing in the Freihofer's Run for Women 5k in Albany, NY.  I was lucky enough to be invited up to run in it and will be flying up on Thursday.  So it's not very long before we leave!  On Friday I get to take part in their athlete visitation program and go with other invited athletes to talk to kids at local schools about big healthy and living a healthy life style.  That will be so much fun, I can't wait!  My training has been going very well and so I am really looking forward to that race on Saturday as well.  It will be fun to spend the weekend in Albany!

I hope everyone has a great week and hopefully I will have a new blog up next Monday to tell you all about how the weekend went. :)

  1. The article in Running Times "Let The Kids Run" was very good. You are a great runner!

    My name is Rheinhardt Harrison, I am 7 years old, and my dad has been running with me since my first 2K when I was 3 years old.

    My one-mile time is down to 6:09.53 and my 1500 meter time is 5:42.25 - without my dads help I wouldn't be this fast.

    I really, really like running!

    I may not place first at this year's Junior Olympics Championships because I am at the bottom of the sub-bantam (7-8) age group. However, my 1500 meter time is the fastest for a 7 year old and I am in the Top 10 rankings.

    You can search my name with Google and see that I run a lot of 5K races and there was an article about me in USA Today.

    I hope everyone knows that we run because we like it!

    My dad also helped me write this because I just started reading (as I just finished first grade).
