hello, how are you making out getting rid of those 20 pounds? I lost all of my weight before becoming a runner. I also gain weight when I train. Last year I trained for a marathon and gained about 7 pounds. i really doesn't sound fair does it. For the past 16 days I have given up eating in the evening. I hope that will be enough to eventually lose those few pounds. gail 2958 days ago
Thanks for your comment on my page! I am so glad that you finished Disney! Congrats to you! I am excited that you may be doing the same runs as me! I think I am going to take your advice and look into the ING in September. You asked about my training...I did the Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so I still follow their schedule. Since Broad street is so far away my long run (fridays) is only 3 miles and my 2 short runs per week are 2 miles. If you need any info on how they train let me know and I can forward you the email that contains the schedule they made for me. If you get a chance let me know how your training was fro Disney. I could use all the motivation that I can get! 2979 days ago
Good Luck at Disney! I trained with Team in Training this fall, but fell short of fundraising otherwise I would be there with you! Instead, I ran the AC Half in October. I am training now for the Delaware 1/2 and the Broad Street run before. Please let me know how disney goes. My heart is there with you. Best of Luck and congrats on the dedication and hard work ! 3001 days ago
