ONE THOUSAND

I passed the 1000 miles mark.
In October.
That is pretty good for me....especially with June and July that were not great mileage months.

Today I went for 9 miles thinking those 9 would put me at 1000..but I wad at exactly 1000 before getting out the door so now I am at 1009!

Going into Taper week.   Next race is in a week, RNR Los Angeles.  Today the weather was PERFECT here....overcast, mid 50s.  I hope to get that on race day..makes a huge difference to not have the sun shining on me.

I have been in a funk since we got the bad news about Bill's job.  Last week he got 2 interviews for positions that are "local"...less than 50 miles away and 1 for a position that would require us moving north of here.  Of course I think getting interviews is good news but I don't want to get my hopes up just yet because there's no offers on the table yet.

I am applying on a part time job at the school district, teacher aid.  Jonathan's teacher wrote me a letter of recommendation.  I have been "working" for her for the last 3 years.  I hope it will help.  This is just 3.5 hours per day and of course comes with no benefits but I could still take care of the boys and earn a small income. 

Congratulations to my ARIZONA Friend EMZ who ran the Grand Canyon R2R yesterday.  That is EPIC.

We got kids team pictures.  The one perk of being the team parent is that I get to be on the picture!! :)




Do you have instagram?

I am there @carotabi!

That's a great accomplishment, and you still have 2-1/2 months of more mileage to go. Great job!

Happy 1,0000! That's great!

I'm running Sunday too - and stalking the weather predictions. It's warmer this way than out near you, I think downtown LA is predicting a high of 80. Sorry. Hopefully it'll warm up very slowly :-) Good luck!

Glad to hear that Bill is getting some job leads. I just hope that you do not have to move but it a good opportunity comes up it might be worth it. Good luck on your job hunt with the school district. I think that would be a perfect job for you. Happy 1000 miles and have fun on your half this weekend. It looks like a fun race! One day I want to run it and dress up for Halloween!
