I Love You Like a Blogger Roundup – 10/11

Last Sunday, I ran the Twin Cities 10 mile race.  It was a beautiful morning, with the temperature in the low 40’s at start time.  I also spent a few hours walking through the health and fitness expo on Saturday held at the Excel Energy center coinciding with race packet pickup.  I just felt like I was right where I was supposed to be, like I belonged there.  Runners are such an incredible group of people that strive to do their very best, while supporting their fellow runners at the same time.

I ran the 10 mile course in 1:27:09, which averages out to be an 8:43 per mile pace.  I enjoyed every second of it.  As I crossed the finish line, I decided that my goal is to run the full marathon next year.  I’m starting my training immediately, as my goal is to make my 4th marathon my very best.  So don’t be surprised if you see marathon training updates from time to time.  🙂

After I crossed the finish line I did a little fist pump, which made me think of these Friday posts here on EOD.  That made me laugh just a little bit, because even after a 10 mile run, I still can’t get personal finance posts out of my head.   You know the drill, check ’em out, and show ’em some love.

  1. Thanks for the ‘fist pump’ Travis, and congrats on your 10-mi race accomplishment. Just think: you’ll finish that full marathon next year free of high-interest debt!

      YES, and we cannot wait to finish that financial marathon! It’s one of the things that I’m using as motivation to run the best marathon that I can next October, Kurt. 2014 is going to be a GREAT year!

    Thanks for including me, Travis! I was so excited when I got my daily LV email and could tell just from the subject that it was about you. I hope your story helped some others this week 🙂

      Your post about creating a budget is so awesome, Cait. I think we’d be surprised how many people just don’t know how to do it….I know I didn’t before I was forced to make massive life changes due to my debt. Thanks for stopping by, my friend….see you in a few days in St. Louis!

  3. Thank you for including my post, Travis! It’s a real encouragement : )

  4. You are welcome, Prudence….I remember reading your blog before, but somehow I didn’t ever add it to my RSS reader. When you commented here on EOD recently I hurried over to it and spent some time reading your content again….you’re a great writer, Prudence, with a great delivery of your experiences. Expect to find me lurking over there often. 🙂
