Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas here I come!
I hate you so much, I am running against you.
You are not on my team.
We are running to fight you!
Forever and Never Yours,
The (Mis) Fit Foodie-Fitness Junkie
Life doesn’t always go the way I want it to go. I’ve been reminded of that several times this year, and once again very recently. But that doesn’t mean we can stop what we’re doing, stop living life and stop doing the things we love the most in the world! So I’m practicing what I preach….a smile, positive energy and doing one of the things that makes me happy – running!
I’ve been on a running hiatus for a couple of months, for many reasons but mostly because of my achy feet. I have been feeling better, but not 100% so what I’m about to do I certainly may regret. No, never mind. I will never regret it, I might just wonder, “what was I thinking?!” And then, I’ll remember and I’ll be proud!
Before I dive into this all again, I spent an hour last night getting a pedicure and a much-needed foot massage. I relaxed, enjoyed and entertained the idea that I’ll surely justify getting these 1-2 times/month during the next few months! They can really make a big difference. Now I’m almost ready – once again – to run!
On December 5th, I will be running my second 1/2 Marathon. But this one might just be even more special than the last. This one benefits Crohn’s & Colitis Research. I have Colitis, and I have various family members who have more extreme versions of it as well. I could not be prouder to run for this cause!
I will never forget my first 1/2 Marathon! There was no better feeling than crossing that finish line. And ever since, I’ve been searching for a (workout/fitness) feeling that parallels. I have not found it!
My training begins on Monday, but I will begin some “baby steps” immediately! I have much less time to train than I did for my first 1/2 Marathon, so I’m not expecting to beat my 1:48 finish time. I’m expecting to train hard, work hard and run because I’m passionate about it and its cause! I’m working off of a 12-week program, in which I only have 11-weeks before the Race.
I will be sharing with you my training schedule, successes, good days, bad days, food, tummy-running-fun, tips, tricks, music, and of course passion through it all! I hope you’ll follow all that is to come in the next couple of months! (*See below on social media.)
This weekend I will be thinking about and deciding on:
- Running Shoes.
- Final Training Program.
- Training “Tool” (probably will utilize NikePlus again)
- New Playlist music.
- Running apparel.
- The best “feet remedies” post-run.
- Cross-training/strength workouts.
- And of course booking a flight, hotel, and the other “goods:)”
*Because of my cross-passions of fitness, food & health mixed with social media, I will be blogging, tweeting, facebook-ing, twitpic-ing, videoing and more! Therefore, I’ll be planning this out this weekend, too! WOW! That makes me so excited!
