Third Half Marathon Journey: Weeks 6-8

If you've missed my posts about my Third Half Marathon Training - Check them out HERE.
I've been sticking to my training program pretty well. If we miss a day, we try to move it to another day - so that we get it all in. The exception was this past week (week 8), when we skipped a week-day run since we were doing the 5k Mud Run on Saturday. 

I will never tire of the pretty sunrises!
The Hal Higdon plan is very different than the Fleet Feet training program and it's taking a little time to get used to. We do A LOT more miles. A LOT. I've been so proud of myself. I can't even believe how many more miles I have run this time compared to last. I'm definitely loving all the calories burned - but I just wish I could figure out how to burn them from my mid-section.
We change our location all the time - so we don't get sick of running in the same spots all the time. And that's been so fun! Who knew there were so many amazing places to run around me?!?
 Now that I'm running 4 and 5 miles during the week, we've had to start really early. Like, as in, it's still really, REALLY dark when we run. Don't I take the best dark selfies? Ha! Obviously not.
There were two girls in our group who separately were chased by a man (probably two different men) and it's just reason enough why I NEVER run alone. EVER. Scary stuff.

I'm going to do a separate post of the 5k Mud Run I did - because it was just so fun!
