I'm running a race (5k) on Saturday in Mona. What better place to run one than through fields of LAVENDER? (My favorite smell/plant EVER). Just started running "seriously" this year, and ran my first 5k race in May. I feel great when I run (most of the time), unless I decide to run to Draper (9.4 miles away), and my knees make me pay for it the next day. In addition to my knees (that i got from my father), I have Shepherd's toe (which I got from my Grandma Snow). Both make it hard to run.
There is a half marathon (13.1 miles) in August that I have signed up for. Up until I ran the 9.4 miles this past weekend, 13 seemed like a LONG way. It's amazing how such a little thing like running can make me feel so great.
