OMG 26.2 miles?!

Seriously am I nuts?!

I am super excited, and honestly a little nervous! But mostly excited!

Last week I played single mom to the girls while their parent's got a much needed and derved trip to ski!

I am not going to lie, I was nervous, but really I was scared they would revolt against me because they missed their parents but they were great! My mom came and played grandma and gave me a little break in the evening!

I only ran one night, the night I registered for MCM. I couldn't wimp out of a run on the day I signed up for a freaking marathon!!

Honestly, it was a great week, but I was beat come Friday. I don't know how single parents do it!

I did go out and run 11 miles with my dad and tigger (Aubrey) I wanted to keep my pace around 10:20 min miles, with two stops for knee pain, and complete exhaustion and desire to give up at mile 8 we finished in 1:55:34. 10:30 pace, and that includes the stops, so I bet it was a little faster. I will take it,.

My 2nd half is on Sat! I can't wait!!


  1. You're a machine! And I love it!

    I'm hoping to do a few 5k's and maybe a 10k this year. I just can't commit to anything longer until I figure out how to get my class load down further. 14 classes + training for a half is just insanity!

    I'm still banking on a Disney Princess 1/2 with you one of these years :)

    1. Yessssss!

      We will do disney princess!!!!
