1. As you probably noticed on the header and website address, I purchased my own domain. It is easier to remember and identifies more with me. So make sure to save this page as one of your favorites: www.seezenaidarun.com It is still a work in progress so if you have comments/suggestions, please let me know.
2. Happy Independence Day! On this day 35 years ago I came to this country with my mother and siblings. It was the beginning of a new life and a new home for me. I am proud to be Mexican but I am also very proud to be an American (I became a U.S. citizen after my 18th birthday). This country has given me so many opportunities. My father brought us here to have a better life and indeed we have. Well, it may not be perfect but it is still a good life.
3. I ran my first non-half marathon race today. Well, not really since I’ve been running since 2005 but lately running only half marathons so you know what I mean. I don’t know why I never ran this race but now I will make sure to do this every year. The race I did today is the Community Bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 4th. Not only was it a fun race but I also got a PR. My last one was in November 2008 with a finish time of 44:28. Today I finished in 41:19 (per my Garmin). Yay! Now I am motivated to run a 5K and see how I do.
