Hey I ran!

Well. Only two miles on the treadmill. But yesterday I ran. And it was glorious to blow off a little steam. I think seeing all the Chicago and TC marathoners last weekend tugged at my heart and I realized I need to somehow carve out 30 minutes 3-4 times a week for a little running/working out. 


Because someday I’d like to do another marathon. I’ve got some redemption to obtain. So this winter I plan on sticking with the ‘mill and my free weights to work on speed and getting leaner. I’ve got a few lbs left to lose which I am sure is the extra wine I’ve had to calm my nerves these last almost 8 months. Wow. Did I just say 8 months?  Hard to believe that much time has passed already!!!  We’re still planking every day to honor my hubby and his troops. Feel free to join in! I post every night on my FB/IG pages. 

Ok time to get back to stalking my daughter’s ballet class. Lol!!  This makes being on the go since 6 am a little easier to tolerate. 


Did you watch the marathons last weekend or know of anyone who ran? 

How do you keep your motivation when life crazies get in the way? 

Cheers!

Michelle

  2. Every step counts! Wat to get those 2 miles in 🙂 And I agree, all the big Fall marathons definitely serve as inspiration.

  3. Hurray for running, Michelle! A little bit is always better than nothing, right? I also felt a lot of marathon envy last weekend seeing everyone with their triumphant photos! I can also relate to needing some marathon redemption. Someday.

    WOW, 8 months!!! The time really has gone by quickly – and that’s a good thing!!! Your planks never cease to amaze me.

  4. My running days are over, but my stiff limbs and muscles when I don’t walk enough keep me motivated to get up and do it again. Congrats on your new program–heading for that marathon.
