A story of going from being a non-runner to planning for a marathon in three years...

Nothing to See Here


First off, I want to apologize for the incredibly emo-tastic downer of a post I made after Saturday's run. I blame humidity. And hormones. God, how I hate both of those things.

Anyway, there isn't much to say about Monday night's run other than:

A. It was MUCH better than Saturday's run

B. My Garmin refused to pick up a signal until over a mile into the run. Irritating!

Technically this was my first run of marathon training. The plan (as I altered it) had me doing 2 miles warm-up, 2 miles at 9:05, and 1.5 miles cool-down. I wouldn't say I stuck totally to the plan although although my average pace was around 9:19 for the miles my Garmin did record. I call that good enough.

And with that, I end the world's most boring post. Oh, other than to tell you that I may be in love with Kohl's Tek Gear performance tops. Seriously. They fit perfectly (even better than the C9 stuff at Target) and they're excellently priced. If you have a Kohl's near you I suggest you check it out!

Oh gosh. When my mom was in town I purchase 3 more of those tops and one tank! Did you get the one with the little pocket in the back for your MP3 player?

I am happy this run was better! I am seriously bummed I do not get to start training. I will have to live through you :)

Glad the latest run was better! Humidity and hormones are the worst combo ever. Seriously, it's destined to never end well.
