I’m officially signed up for the Get in Gear! half marathon in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 30, 2011. Eeek! I’ve paid, that means I have to go, right? I’m running it with my brother’s girlfriend and possibly my husband, dad, and brother-in-law (and maybe brother?). It should be awesome and I’m excited – but I’m also extremely nervous. My goal? To break 2 hours.
I bought new running shoes after my WW meeting today. I’m up to 6 miles and my toes were hurting after long runs – apparently my shoes weren’t big enough. Tip: Make sure you’ve got a thumb’s width of room between where your big toe is and the end of the shoe – otherwise when running hills your toes will hit the end of the shoe, and lemme tell ya, ouch.
WI results for today were satisfying 🙂 I’m down 1.8 from last Saturday. My goal is to lose at least 12 pounds. If I lost 15 I’d be ecstatic! Last time I did WW and attending the meetings I got to that weight – but then I made the ultimate mistake: stopped tracking. My goal this time? Don’t stop! Make lifetime! Keep tracking! We’ll see if I can do it.
