I've missed it!

Friday, May 10, 2013

Ok, I'll admit it...I've missed running! We've had scholarship presentations and honors night the past two evenings so I haven't been able to run. I still can't believe I'm saying this, but I missed it!

My "running cousin" who does marathons and is getting ready for a 50K, sent me some information about a 1/2 marathon in September. I'm not quite ready for that, but I definitely will do a 5K and hopefully a 10K this year.

I overheard my oldest telling a friend that I'm in better running shape than she is. I'll take that as a compliment.

The weather is nice today, so I'm hoping to hit the 4.25 mile route tonight. I'm ready mentally and hopefully physically. I still need to work on sprints, but I think I'll wait for a shorter run. emoticon

    You've got the running bug now. Keep increasing that distance as feels comfortable and there's definitely a half marathon in your future.

    Good for you. Huge compliment from your daughter. I've decided to start working on running a 10K. Probably next summer, but we'll see.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Happy Friday!
