July 25- Today I hit a benchmark in running. 11 miles . . . The longest distance ever! . . . well for me that is. My last longest run was several months ago and I ran/walked 10.8 miles. This time around, my endurance has improved drastically. I was able to run (not fast) basically the whole distance minus a stretch and bathroom stop. My long runs are however starting to catch up with me. By the time I am done, I have like an hour to rest before I have to get ready for work. I do feel refreshed and empowered after the run so it's all worth it! I need to start trying the famous ice baths soon.

July 23- I committed to be a donor for a bone marrow transplant if ever I am a match for someone through 'Be the Match'. It sounds like a scary commitment but it is actually a fairly easy procedure where the donor immediately recovers. It would be an incredible experience if ever I have the opportunity.

July 22- Tried the whole increased incline on the treadmill. It wasn't as hard as I thought however, I didn't run very long. I can't stand treadmills now that I run outside so often.
