The "Beast" wasn't as bad as last week.
The training I did this past week paid off like my trainer told me it would.
I paced myself much better today taking it nice, slow and steady. I made it to the large curve East of the 17th Street bridge and little further. 2.5 miles give or take.
I walked most of the bridge, but unlike last week, I felt strong and was breathing normally.
It wasn't till I came back the second time that the "Beast" tried to kick my butt, but I pushed threw it and made it across.

GETTING INTO THE RACE TO SAVE LIVES
For the past two season I've been helping my husband, Marc, fundraise for LLS and run both Disney's Princess and Wine & Dine Half Marathons. It's been a very rewarding experience, so now it's my turn.
I've decided to leave the sidelines and get into the race to save lives.
In November I'll begin training as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training at Disney's Half Marathon, a 13.2 mile race through Walt Disney World.
However, I can't cross the finish line without your help.
All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. My goal is to raise $2,000. Please donate TODAY!
It's easy and tax deductable. Go to my fund-raising web page http://pages.teamintraining.org/sfl/dipihalf11/thousesk42 to donate.
Your donation (big or small) will help me get closer to my goal, go towards a cure for blood cancer and you'll feel great.
I hope you will visit my web site often. You'll see photos and see my progress.
Thanks for your support!
