long time...no write



this is me (on the left), and my two friends after finishing the columbus half marathon on october 17, 2010


it has been a while since i have updated this blog. i have been tracking my runs on dailymile.com and have not had a lot of time to get on here as well. running has been such a blessing in my life. in the last 4 months, i have lost more than 30 lbs, have gained confidence in my own abilities, and have become a happier, healthier person. even on the days that are hard, i find that i am not as affected as i would have been in the past.

the half marathon was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! i felt fantastic throughout the entire run...didn't really even get tired until mile 12. the feeling when i crossed the finish line is indescribable! i cannot wait to run another one...looking forward to may. i ran my first half marathon in 2:06:54....my goal for may is to break 2 hours. i know i can do it!!

i am training to run the jingle bell run in december...even though it will be cold, i am excited about it. i have been working on some speed work, and i feel confident that i will reach my goal of 25:30 or better....

i am in the middle of one of the best years in my life...and i am so thankful for this gift of running and the positive effect it has had on me!!

  2. The half marathon is a fantastic distance. It's long enough that you can pace, but it's short enough that you don't kill yourself and recovery time is short.
