Wake Up Call

Sunday morning, I had signed my whole company up to do a 5K together... this was the longest I've run probably since the San Antonio Marathon in November. It was not fun. Hot and humid at 8:30 already, we ran the first 1.25 or so then stopped to try and wait for coworkers. We then walked and jogged the rest of the time. I felt so out of shape that I didn't want to / couldn't (not sure which) run the whole thing. I have 24 weeks until Nike Women's... Here I go!

Nike Women's Marathon 2012!

It's been awhile... both posting here and running! Last I left off I was trying to do some last minute training for the NWM 2011; well it paid off and I managed to come in just under 5:15! (Which is about a 15 minute PR)  I followed that up a few weeks later with the San Antonio Marathon. That one was sunny and hot and I had a great first 10 miles and then the sun came out and I took my sweet ole time, finishing around my traditional 5:34.

Then life hit! Business is going extremely well... which means I am beyond busy. I bailed on the Austin Half (although got my awesome 3M swag), deferred the Austin Full... and just completely bailed on the Dallas rock-n-roll Half.

Today is my birthday! I was up early enjoying some tea and a magazine out back when a got an email from Nike Women's Marathon... I was once again selected through the random drawing!!!!

WOOHOO! Happy Birthday to me!!!

Now to figure out how to actually train this time... ideas?!  I'm doing a 5K this weekend!
