Race Day?

So, today was to be a race day, and I was to run a 5k with Matt and our local Road Runner’s club.  Yes, oh yes, I can give you the excuses for why it didn’t happen, but I won’t.  Just know that it didn’t happen…and I do feel a bit (just a bit) guilty!  I did, however, run in my neighborhood to make up for my missed race :).    Here’s how it panned out:

There is no doubt about it, I am one who thrives on a routine and structure.  That’s why I am a bit excited to begin my 1/2 marathon training in two weeks.  And, I am super excited to be running in Washington D.C. for the Nike Woman’s Half with Pink Runner.

Pink Runner takes good care of me and she devised the training plan we will be using for the upcoming race.  Doesn’t look too bad!

Well, I have two more weeks to dabble around with an unstructured running schedule. I’ll continue to run a few times and do some cross training.  Shhhhh! I even have a 5 miler race scheduled in two weeks too! 🙂

Happy Running!

Happy Racing!

  1. My mouth dropped when I saw your last mile split. Then I realized it wasn’t a whole mile. 🙂 Thought something had gotten after you!!

    I absolutely LOVE that half training plan! So simple. Just consistent running with mileage buildup.

    I had a LAZY week of running with 1 mile logged so far. Seriously, I felt like something was wrong with me this week. I didn’t want to do anything except lay around at night and eat Honey Smack cereal! 🙂

  2. I am really excited to find your blog! I am a reading specialist and budding runner/blogger. I am training for my first 10k. I look forward to hearing about your training. I hope to run a half marathon someday in the future.
