Week 21 of 30

I'm already 21 of 30 weeks into training, I can't even believe it really. I didn't even think this would be possible. It's been tough, but I made it work!

This weeks schedule was to back down on miles and do a 10 mile. I ended up staying out late the night before, my youngest woke up early. I was running on 3 hours of sleep. I said the exact line, "I got no sleep, its raining, but oh well, its just a 10 mile run!"

  Since when is it JUST  a 10 mile run?!  That's insane, but a insane that I love! I managed to make it threw! 1st run in the rain, but we did it! Busted threw that mental road block!

I received my Run 4 Life package too!

Marathon training Week 20 of 30

Marathon Training!

It's still crazy to me knowing I am training for a marathon!

We are following Hal Higdon's

Marathon Training Guide - Novice Supreme

WEEK 20!

We made our way through week 20! That's amazing! Just finishing 13 Miles. Such a different mind set than before when I ran my first half. I prepared what seems like forever for it, and this time its just another day training. I never carb loaded before running it, I didn't load up on body glide, or anything!

13 Miles seems so small compared to what we will be doing!

We changed our route this time to a different town. Running the same town can get very boring!
This town has a paved trail and beautiful views!! Like so pretty it made the run so worth it! Its very hilly, but for some reason I felt so much better after this run then I did the 12 mile previous week!

It took a good 24 hours to feel semi-normal and not sore!
Sore is the new normal, eek!

Next Week is a lower long run week of 10 miles. Possibly first run in the rain.
Wish us luck!

I'm Back!

Wow, where has time gone?

Last time I wrote that I got a job! That was almost 4 years ago! Yup guess that means it made me completely busy, and had no time for nothing. It sure took a long time to get into the swing of things! Not to mention

I ended up having another baby in that time!

After the birth of my son, I started all over again, Back to square one, only being able to run for 2 minutes then feeling like I was going to die!

I have amazing running / encouraging friends and although I'm not as speedy this round for some reason, I get it done and did plenty of races! My first Swamp Foot run and also my first trail run. Which is by far my favorite! I'll have to talk about that another time!



Here I am now, Full time working still....I actually got moved up to the office, no more dirty clothes, safety glasses or dirty man hands!

I had a Stinker lil' man, He's 17 Months old. Such a handful! My daughter is now the big helper 7 year old!

If all that didn't make you tired, I am also training for my first full Marathon! Here is my two sole sisters. We run every weekend our long run together. Of course we take pictures everytime!

Last week I had an opportunity came across my facebook to be an ambassador for Run 4 Life. This made me realize I needed to get back on my blog! I loved documenting all my runs, I love getting my story out there,  and I always hope to inspire others. So I applied and I am happy to announce I was chosen!!!



This is very exciting! Its new for them and new for me! I hope to continue to share my love for running with all!
