I read an article today from Mark Remy at Runners World, he talked about how difficult it must be to be married to him, a runner.

I am not married, but I am in a long term (4.5 years on Sunday :-D ) relationship.

I know there have been many times during my 1/2 marathon training where I would spend 1-1.5 hours down at the gym before coming up and putting together something for dinner. We ate late sometimes because I would run first.
Weekends were fun towards the end. I would disappear for 2 plus hours every before we could go and do something.

And then there was the race. Getting up at 6, standing around alone for almost 3 hours.

It must suck to date a runner!

But without his support I wouldn't have crossed that finish line. He pushed me on days I didn't feel like training. Helped me get back on track when I was slacking off. He was my biggest fan.

I hope he doesn't get upset when he finds out I am thinking about running a 10 miler in the spring :-D (at least it will be local!)

Thanks Matt for supporting me through the last race and for always supporting me. I love you!

p.s. this is my last post ever as a 25 year old. eek! 16 mins!

Back at it

I took about 3.5 weeks off of running after the race. I did a week of p90x and then the month of travel started so it got put on hold. I was feeling blah and i needed to be active again. So I went for an easy 2 mile run. Ran slow but felt good. However I feel tight in my hips today. I dont know what that means but hope its just because I've been lazy lately.

This weekend I am going to NYC for a bachelorette party then I am home again and time to get serious about my working out again. I have about 20 lbs I would like to get rid of and I need to step it up to get it off.

Congrats to those who ran the Chicago marathon last weekend. I am really excited about cheering people on at the Marine Corps Marathon at the end of the month!

So I am back...for sure.
