I have been sucking at blogging (shocker)
I have been working my butt off at school.
I have been running a lot.
I need to get a better way to display these… its getting a little full
I ran it in 2011 in 1:59:18. SLOW
This year I ran it in 1:43:35! Loving that I am PRing everything – but I guess when everything is so slow, its easy to do!!
Speaking of PRing. My running coach, Kelly, and I have decided I am going to try and Sub 2 hour a half marathon. I picked the Marine Corps half marathon that is about a month away… hoping I can do this!!
I ran 12 miles last weekend around a VERY hilly neighborhood. I need to keep doing that and run a little faster.
My short runs are all pretty fast, but I need to keep going faster.
This weekend I am running another 10 miler, but I am not after a PR, just running with a friend and taking in the pretty route!
In other running news, I ordered new running shoes. Same shoes I always wear, except the best upgrade ever! They come in PINK. Holy heck! So happy!!!!!! When I bought my shoes I promised myself I would buy what was best for my running and not what was cute. Finally after 2 years, the two have merged!!
I am officially half way to my first masters degree and one third to completing my dual degree program!! This past semester was hard. The classes were hard, the work was HARD, I was juggling running and some exciting additions to my social life. My weekends are a lot busier than they used to be.
I am glad I get a little break. I will be reading Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Watching the shows I have neglected on my DVR and running.
Life is good these days. Really very good.
