Almost Time for a Half????

So welcome to my newly revamped page!

Much of my information was out of date and my goals needed to be reset so here I go....

I have continued to run and an interesting thing has happened. I originally ran to lose weight but now I run to run and any additional weight loss will be a by-product.

My Goals:
I am a Type II diabetic. I wear a C-PAP machine when I go to bed due to sleep apnea. I am self-conscious about my appearance.



These are all things that I might possibly be able to change if I just give myself the chance...

My Program:
Currently, I run every other day. I try to vary my distances but with a minimum of 4 miles.

I am looking to standardize my training while increasing my speed and distance.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Northeast Philly, but I now live in South Jersey.

Other Information:
I have a 22 year old daughter that is morbidly obese. I worry for her EVERY SINGLE DAY. She is a beautiful girl with crazy smarts and talent.



I hope to inspire her so that SHE can take the steps she needs to. NOT because I care about how she looks - but because her weight has caused her to retreat from life, and she has so very much to offer.

First, thanks and pleased I may help motivate others! When I too need motivation! Yes I love the Galloway Method, bought the book too. Read my post today on the Galloway SP page Gen Discussion board on why I swear Galloway makes me faster! I run 3 times per week and trying to get motivated to work more on XT. I have been slacking and need to get back working out 5-6 days per week. If I can run a HM, believe me anyone can :) emoticon

Hey,
It is hard for me to say which is better . I will run a 5k with no walk breaks in about 30 min. I ran a 15k with walk breaks at a 10:1 ratio , 10 minutes run 1 min walk . For longer races , you have to have a strategy . My strategy during my HM was to survive . This time , I want to succeed . Therefore I am training based on the 10:1 . Also , I use a Garmin to monitor my pace and HR . Don't know if this helps, but so far it works for me.

PJ,
Yes , I have run a HM , Cincinnati Flying Pig in May 2009, I did not train enough for this year and ran in the 5k instead. I recently signed up for the USAF HM , in September. My thought process is that once I have committed the $ for the entry fee, I am more likely to train in advance. Let me know what you decide to do and we can check in with each other.

When is the HM , that you are thinking about? I signed up for one in September. Maybe we could check each other during training.

It was great wasn't it?! Even though it was hot as all get out! I was 1:55:54 so it wouldn't surprise me if we ran pretty close to each other during the race. I couldn't believe the size of the crowd...it was amazing. I loved the fact that there were all skill levels and shapes and sizes of runners.

Miles 2 -3 were killers for me. All that was going through my mind was "What were you thinking?! Do you really think you can make 7 more miles?!" Then I found my grove and didn't struggle until mile 7 -8. The last couple of miles flew by with the crowds cheering.

Definitely a great experience! Hope you had an awesome day as well and are celebrating you achievement!
