I can't pass up a good medal!
I needed to get out of my fitness slump! Sure I attend my boot camp classes 4 days a week, and I've been running here and there short distances, but I was kind of just going through the motions, maintaining.
My first half of 2014 wasn't scheduled until October, so I was taking it pretty easy.
As luck would have it, just four weeks before race day, 50 spots opened up on a half marathon I was interested in, and so....here goes nothing!
I love medals!
I'm back in training mode...which is where I thrive! Two a day workouts? Yes, please! Logging 20+ miles a week? OK!
I'm exhausted, I miss food that is bad for me, hours of netflix on the couch, and wine, (except for Friday's...those will still be MINE!) and it feels like all I do is run, shower, go to the gym, shower, prepare my meals, sleep, and start all over.... but this is the kind of stuff that makes me tick!
I successfully made it through my first week of kicking processed foods again, and while I sometimes feel like yelling at people for being able to eat what I can't...I know that in another week, I won't even miss it!
I missed race season more than I thought I would. I think I'm officially a runner!
