the marathon

We have been talking about it for awhile now and have decided to actually do it. Yes, we are going to run a marathon!!  Depending on when God provides our mission support, we are planning on doing the Chicago Marathon on October 10th of this year (but we would be TOTALLY happy if our support came in and we left before then!)

We started back running today.  It has been awhile since either one of us has run consistently.  So, we started with a quick 3 mile in order not to bite off more than we could chew.  It felt really good to get out there, even though it was in the 20's.  There is something about running that...well in the moment it sometimes is difficult and we feel the need to quit but the feeling we get afterwards is always worth it!!

We have added a section to our blog called the marathon at the top.  We hope to update it often (daily) with updates on our training and tips we learn along the way.

Coming Soon!!! We are also working on adding a section to the blog for COUPONING (for all you ladies and gentleman who are interested!) and frugal living so look for that soon!

**oh and we wanted to say if any of our other running buddies want to join us WINK know who you are for the marathon and for a visit please let us know :)**

Eli's ready for his run today!
