Hi everyone! I'm still here. I've just been blogging over at laurarunsalatte.com . I wanted to share this here though, because it was a GREAT workout! I think I snagged this off Pinterest (and it might have been Natalie I snagged it from).
3 minutes @ 3.0
2 minutes @3.5
3 minutes @6.5
1 minute @7.0
1 minute @3.5
3 minutes @6.7
1 minute @7.2
1 minute @3.5
3 minutes @7.0
1 minute @6.5
1 minute @3.5
I would maybe change the 3.0 to 3.5 and the 3.5 to 4.0, but other than that, this was a really great workout! Enjoy!
Was this from you, Natalie? If so, THANKS! Lol!

One of my goals for 2013 is to run a full marathon. I'll post more on that later, but in the meantime I saw this (at CafePress) and just had to share :)
Happy New Year everyone!

Right after New Years our dog, Chase suddenly passed away. He was only 3 years old. We had him back and forth to several vets and nobody could figure out what was wrong with him. The last vet we took him to thinks it was meningitis, but we will never really know. I won't go into the painful and heartbreaking details - I'm sure any of you pet lovers know how devastating an experience something like this is.
2 days later, my husband decided to get a new puppy thinking it would ease the pain and keep us busy to not dwell over the whole ordeal. We ended up with a 5-week old female pit bull, Lucy. Needless to say, she was (and still is) more than a handful! She's almost 5 months old now and I'm finally starting to have some "me" time again!
During this whole time (almost 5 months) I have not ran, and we've gone out to eat a few too many times. While I've still been eating mostly healthy (and still vegan!) I've managed to gain 10 pounds! Ugh. So as of yesterday, I am back on track and logging all my food, and running again. Well, at this point you can't even call it running, hehe! After an excruciating 3.5 miles yesterday, I started back on C25k today and that was much better! I'm hoping to be back up to 13.1 again soon so that I can start training for a full marathon!
So anyways, that's why I haven't been here. Next time something devastating happens, I will remember that those are the times I need support the most.

On November 6, 2011 (which happens to be World Run Day) I'll be doing a 10-mile run to benefit Farm Sanctuary.
I just registered for the St. Luke's Half Marathon on April 29, 2012. It's about 5 miles from my house!
I've decided that I want my first full marathon to be as stress-free as possible (is there such a thing?! Lol!) so I've decided on the Lehigh Valley (VIA) Marathon, which is, again, about 5 minutes from my house! It's somewhere around September 11, 2012 but hasn't been officially posted yet.
And as everyone knows that my favorite holiday is Halloween, I'm still trying to find a race around here that's more than a 5k, preferably a 10k or 10-miler. I'll update if/when I find the right one! I am all about running in a costume! ;)
The only bad news is that I'm not going to be able to do the RnR Half-marathon in December (sorry Judy and Natalie). I just can't afford it since I wasn't able to get the airline tickets before they sky-rocketed :(
