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.

Thank you for your comment!
