An early morning run, upcoming races, and my 2011 goal.

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

  1. 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!)
  2. 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!)
  3. 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.

    This makes me happy!

 How are you getting along with your 2011 goal(s)?

    Who doesn’t love as automatic PRs?! So glad you’re doing the Hot Choc 15K. It’s a fun distance. And fun chocolate 🙂 yum!

      Automatic PRs are the best. There’s not a whole lot of pressure to get a specific down-to-the-second time. 🙂 And also, any race sponsored by CHOCOLATE is a bonus in my book!
