Tis the season!

Ah yes, running season. Here we are.

I decided I was going to have a fulfilling and rewarding season this year. I wanted to start with something easy and fun and really be able to feel comfortable so I started with the color run last weekend. It was a ton of fun and while it wasn't timed, I did time myself and I felt pretty good about it. I finished in 36:27 which felt pretty great and I hope to keep improving on that time and get better and better.

This upcoming weekend I am running another 5k which is very special to my heart. I will be running an autism awareness race which raises money for autism research. My son is special needs and this summer we will beginning the process of having him tested for Autism. So this race will be one I put my whole heart into and race the best I can.

I am going to take some time between the Autism race and July to train and get ready for my first 10k in late July. I'll also be doing my first ever half marathon in November so I will be training for that as well.

It's possible that I will break down and do another 5k before July but I don't have any plans for one right now. I really want to focus on running longer and training myself for endurance.

This is my year to run faster and run farther!
