Day 1. Check!

So, I said I'd do 2 miles. And I RAN 2 miles.

A few weeks ago, me and Bradley got new Ipods and NikePlus sensors to track our runs. We've used these in the past and both agree that it helps as far as accountability.

Tonight, I used my Nike Plus for the first time (since calibrating it).

That's when I ran into a problem. Apparently the calibration is off. Rather than post my stats that were inconsistent with the treadmill and with how I actually felt like I was doing, I plan on recalibrating it tomorrow and trying again.

Important running : make sure your shoes fit YOU! If your local sports store can help you find the perfect running shoe, take advantage of it! Your feet are very important, take care of them.

Do It, Then Do It Again!

Hey ya'll!

It's that time again! What time, you ask? Well.... you see last year by this time I had committed to raising $2400 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in trade of training and motivation to get me across the finish line of my FIRST HALF MARATHON!

Only, this time is different. I won't be running with TNT, nor will I be raising money. I'll be done this for me! I've decided to write this blog to track my training and for a way for you to hold me accountable :)

I will be training to complete my second half marathon! This year's race will be held February 13, 2011!

Wish me luck as I set out to complete my goals!

I will post my training schedule and other fun tips in future posts - so make sure to come back.

Todays mission: 2 miles...

Time Flies!

Hello People!

SO, it's been over a week since my last post. I'll go ahead and admit that I'm a bad blogger. Over the past week, Martha Ann and I have been following our training schedule to the T!

You know those days when you just don't feel like running? Well, the A/C is out in the gym at the apartment.... so to be honest, I NEVER feel like running in there! The only motivation with that is that we always leave sweatier than we ever are when running outside.

Oh, and I got a new pair of shoes! Every year when we were younger, my dad would take me and my brother shoe shopping for a new pair before school started. I LOVE getting new shoes! Sportspectrum had a shoe clinic for us and the best part, we got 20% off our shoes! So now, I have shoes that supposedly fit my arch and my mechanics.
Here they are:

Hey ya'll,

Thanks for stopping by! I'm creating this blog to keep ya'll updated on whats new in my life. I recently joined Team in Training in an effort to raise money for the leukemia and lymphoma society. In exchange they will help me run a marathon (or half-marathon!). That's a long way, but I know I can do it.
