The Training Continues

I have now entered my fourth week of training for the Denver Rock n Roll Half Marathon.  Everyday I have consistently put in my miles for the day that add up 13 miles for the week.  My progress is measured by completing the run, my time and my strength.  For awhile I was obsessed with my time and forgot to remember just enjoy the 30 minutes to an hour that I have to myself since I have a little audience everywhere I go these days.
This past Saturday we put a team together and ran a 5k/10k race to end hunger in Colorado Springs.  Before the race there wasn't enough time to use the ladies room and I had to go bad so during the race I pulled off the course and went in the wooded area.  My pit stop took me from the middle of the pack to the back but was able to make up some time and finished the 5k race in 36 minutes.  This time wasn't my personal best at all but had fun wearing a tutu while spending the morning with my hubby and friends.
Goals this week is to run my 5 miles in 40 minutes and to keep pushing forward.

  1. Love the tutus!! I'm "chugging" right along with you. Chad and I are both running and I hate it because it sucks when you are "sucking wind" but then I LOVE it because it feels so great when I'm done and it's so effective on my body!!! Keep it up girl :)

  2. love your blog!! Definitely not a mom yet, or close, but I love seeing hard work and results and this blog is just about that! Good luck, power through girl! xoxo
