21 miles on Paige's 21st Birthday! Sweet! (or Sweat!)

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And MILES to go before I sleep,
And MILES to go before I sleep."
-Robert Frost

On Paige's 21st birthday I looked back at her 1st birthday celebrating (a 20 year stroll down memory lane). So, I wanted to update (or give a shout out) about the Knudsen Girls Adventures for this year's birthday!

Andie flew to Utah as the family courier delivering birthday presents for Paige! And, in the spirit of their marathon training, they'd planned a 21 mile run up Provo Canyon to celebrate 21 years for Paigey!

I was worried about the heat for both girls. So, like any good Mom I insisted they take the water belt! I also expected the high altitude change to bother Andie. But both the birthday girl and her big sis were in their zone and feeling good! It turned out to be an Excellent Adventure and Memorable Run!

The distance run should give both girls the CONFIDENCE they'll need to run the full 26.2 miles when our Nike Women's Marathon date arrives on October 18th.

Bill Rodgers, American marathon runner said: "Your Training Partners are your key to success, and friendships based on your runs together are strong." (sounds like something you'd read on a fortune cookie!)
