First, let me apologize for being so un-blogworthy. Things have been crazy busy in my life for the past 3+ months! The holidays, work, trying to work on my fitness certifications, working out, learning and teaching POUND, running, … I can come up with more if it’d make a difference!
Things are NOT about to ease up for me anytime soon.
I’ve gotten myself into a few things.
I signed up for my first marathon to be completed toward the end of March. It’s the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach. It was peer pressure. After finishing my registration I thought “WTF have I done?!” I am NOT ready for 26 point freaking 2 miles!!! Then I finally settled down and realized, when am I really going to be “ready” to run that distance? What’s done is done and now I’m in training and all is going well.
A few weeks after that is the race that I hold most dear to me, the Run for the Animals. It was my first race after I got back into running, which I did to save my life, and it’s for a cause that I support wholeheartedly! I’m signed up for the half marathon portion of the race this year. If I need to, I can always drop back to the 10K or, this year they are offering a non-competitive 5K run/walk! I find this to be totally awesome as it will draw so many more people! A 10K can be intimidating to many. A 5K? It’s a GREAT starter race for anyone! And so much less intimidating!!! And the more participants, the more money raised for the cause.
Then, 3 weeks after that I am registered for my first Ragnar Trail Relay in Richmond, VA. I’ve been wanting to do Ragnar for at least 2 years now, and when I learned about there being an option so close for 2016, I jumped at the opportunity! Running and camping all in one venue? Yes, please!
Those are just a few things on my docket so far for 2016. I PROMISE I will do my BEST to post here more often in 2016! It might take me another couple of months before I’m back regularly, but I have SO MUCH to tell you! I have several life events I want to share with you, tons of running adventures, and a few awesome products I want to tell you about.
Please forgive me (again) for my absence. I will return soon…
