I am working hard to get back on track. My activity level has been lower but my eating level is high! Ha ha! The exercise has picked up. I just need to be better about writing down what I am eating. I generally eat healthy foods, just have tro... Read more

I did it! I am recovering very slowly. My time was 5 hours 9 minutes. The last 1 1/2 hours was excrutiating with the last 3 miles seemed to take forever. I met a lady about mile 10 also doing her first marathon and we kept each going. I am reco... Read more

Well, a couple of weeks ago (just after I had completed my 20 mile run), I was starting my taper and my right thigh started to have a slight pain. Well, of course, I kept running because there has been some pain here and there along the way with... Read more

Well, it is 1 month until my marathon. I have ran 300 miles in preparation of this event! Last Sunday, I did an 18 mile long, slow run. Let's just say I put the "slow" in long, slow run. I actually met 2 very nice people. I ran with Debra h... Read more

My friend, Jen, talked me into doing the Spokane River Run which is a trail run. We chose to do the 25K (which is 15.5 miles). I had run 16 and 15 miles the previous 2 Sundays for my long, slow run so I knew I could make it but I was not prepa... Read more

Half way there

Sunday, March 21, 2010      2 comments

Today I ran 13 miles (in the rain - yuck). I saw my buddy, Steve, riding his bike. Either we are dedicated or crazy to be out in the rain! It was a good run but I was definately tired at the end. I started thinking that I would have to run 1... Read more

Last week I actually had my first 10 mile run. I headed out on the Trail near my house and figured that I would stop by the local parks along the trail to get water but when I got there I realized that the water had not been turned on! Here in... Read more

I had to travel to Boise this past weekend and I had every intention of doing my long run on Sunday (6 miles) but I FORGOT my shoes! I was so upset but I think it was probably for the best because we got in late, I did NOT sleep the night befor... Read more

First Long Run

Well, Sunday was my first long run of my marathon training. It was 6 miles which is completely doable. Last summer, when I was training for my triathlon, I ran 6 miles on a regular basis but this winter I have just not gotten the motivation to... Read more

True weight

Thursday, January 28, 2010      0 comments

Okay, since I have started "training", I went to the Weight Watchers meeting this morning to weigh in so I could see if I am going to lose any weight with all this running. Actually, it is the eating part that is more difficult for me. I love ... Read more

Marathon training starts today!

Wednesday, January 27, 2010      0 comments

Well, it is my first official run today as I prepare for the Coeur d'Alene marathon which occurs during Memorial Day weekend. It was a 3 mile run (usually I run 4.5 miles) so it was relatively easy. I am trying to use my short runs to build so... Read more
