Last night I told Justin when my alarm goes off he has to push me out of bed. He came back with- due to his present condition and advice of the attending physician he is not allowed to push/pull or lift anything over 50 pounds. (He has an inguinal hernia and has a surgery consult Tuesday!)

So instead when my alarm went off at 7 I had him kick me. It sort of worked. 10 min later I got out of bed And got dressed:



I’m officially starting my half marathon training today. I’m trying out a run/walk interval set- today was 4min run/1min walk. It was nice and cool out, with the foreboding black sky creeping toward me, so it was pleasant. I did we’ll for the first day, I think. The whole set repeats for 45 min. I did it for 35 before heading home. Tomorrow is cross training for an hour. Maybe I’ll use that gym membership I bought a month ago and elliptical/bike??!!!!!?????

I’m going to start up p90x again as well. Woooooooooo doggie!

Meet Grace


I am frustrated. I’ve had my eye set on the Space Coast Half Marathon in Florida in December for a few months now and have been debating whether I was going to have the opportunity to do it or not travel-wise.

Well the half marathon capacity has been reached, and I did not get to sign up.


Disheartened, I headed over to rundisney’s website with hopes of the princess half marathon in February. That too is sold out.

I guess I obviously am naive to the sport of running and just how popular it has become? I guess I’m dumb to think I have a Cushion of 4-7 months to register. Silly me!

So now I’m a little lot lost as far as my goals go. I don’t have any race that I want to do, half marathon wise, aside from the glass city in April of next year. I wanted the space coast to be my first.

Big exasperated sigh.

Lesson learned. Well lesson reinforced- if you want something, get it NOW. Don’t wait and mull it over. Dive in head first and commit. Be spontaneous!

Now I’m going to go sulk and look for some other destination races or something. Maybe I’ll cruise Pinterest and find stuff that motivates me.
