First Quilt is Almost Ready for the Wall

Sewing is very relaxing for me and I can sew for hours and it seems like 15 minutes. I continued hand stitching the binding to the back of my first quilt this evening. I can probably finish it in one more sitting. I have no idea how to hang a small quilt on a wall so if anybody can give me any pointers on how to do that, I'd appreciate it very much. Here is the nearly finished quilt with 2.5 sides of the binding completed...
I haven't been talking much about my marathon training. That is because I am getting discouraged. I have been very tired on my runs lately. I had to split a 6 miler into 2 separate runs today. I am planning on doing a 1/2 marathon in May so things need to improve soon. I need the right mix of proteins and carbohydrates and much more water in my diet. If any of you are runners, I'd like to know if you ever get into these zones where you repeatedly hit a wall too early in a run and if you do, how do you deal with that?

On another subject, we are nearing the one year anniversary of my blog! Crazy. One year. Time could slow down and I would not complain for one second. I have been putting some thought into a give away to celebrate this anniversary so stay tuned for more information on that.
