You may have noticed that since completing my very first marathon on October 30, the blog has been a little quiet. That’s what happens when work and life get crazy!
Since the MCM, I’ve moved apartments. I now live soveryclose to Carly that we’ve started running in the early mornings before work. I say “started” because we’ve gone out twice now and have one more scheduled this week. But then she runs off to Mexico for a week!
6am is awfully early for me to go for a run, but I’m trying a new thing where I don’t wear a watch on these runs. I hear it’s called “going naked” (tee-hee). And apparently, for me and the shorter distances, that’s a GOOD thing. Today’s run was quick and, as Carly said, “we negative split the crap out of that run”!!
Upcoming Races & My 2011 Goal
- Laura and I have a fun Turkey Trot coming up over Thanksgiving: The TXU Sheltering Arms 5k/10k. I’m looking to PR the 5k since it’ll be in Houston and the course looks pretty flat. (& all left turns!)
- December 3 is the Hot Chocolate 15k. It’s a new distance for me, so automatic PR! And the race is sponsored by Ghiradelli Chocolate! (That sounds like a good time, right there!)
- As of today, I have run a total of 433 miles! My goal is to make it to 500 before the year is out. I think that is TOTALLY doable.
How are you getting along with your 2011 goal(s)?
