Welcome to the Family

Chad and I were very pleased to welcome a new member into our family this past weekend - a 2002 Volkswagen Passat. It is my absolute dream car and I am so happy that we bought it! It was sad to see Monty go (my 98 Mitsubishi Montero Sport that was faithfully there for me for the past 6 years) but it was definitely time to put her out to pasture.

Chad and I got a really great deal from a dealership outside of Louisville (www.streamline-automotive.com) and the whole process of selling a car/buying a new car was surprisingly smooth and easy.

And, I had the delectable treat of coke and peanuts on the way to Louisville - it was a great way to start the weekend, dare I say a good luck charm.

In training news, I did 16 miles on Sunday and felt really great. I was able to maintain a 9:30 pace all the way through, and I finished feeling like I still had some kick in me. I will do 20 this Saturday, and then 20 or 22 on the 9th, depending on how I am feeling. After the completion of this run, I will start my three week taper. I stocked up today on Luna Moons and Cliff Shot Bloks, so I should be good to go for the final push of training.

Yay! Love the car!! I had a 2003 Jetta that I loved, unfortunately my husband crashed it. But VW makes great cars, you're going to love it.

Great work on the long run! Good luck on the 20+ miler! :)
