Run Run Run

I ran a whole mile Wednesday in a row!!! I was doing a 55 minute "run" on my training plan, and the first mile was all running. I did it in just under 12 minutes. yes, that is not a fast run, but I was moving the whole way. I ended up doing 3.5miles in 49:02 - which is an average of 14 minutes per mile. Disney requires 16 minute miles. I have 17 weeks to go, I think I just might pull it off!

Summer - No Blog

Wow, it's been three months since I last wrote. But, I have been running. Summer it was hard to keep motivated - the race is far away (in Jan '09) and it is HOT outside. But, the summer is over, mostly, and I am down to less that 19 weeks from the race. We have hotel reservations even.

I have begun following a training plan. I'll write more on that in the next blog.

I've been doing weight watchers for a couple of months, and I am back to my pre-summer weight. (I really took time off I guess.)

A, H, and R just completed the Disneyland half marathon - congrats. A & R have the Goofy coming up in Jan. There have been times that I have thought, WHY didn't I sign up for the half marathon - 26.2 miles is too dang much. Now, I am changing my thinking to, "Thank goodness I didn't sign up for the Goofy - 26.2 is just enough."
