On this day in history (Today)...

Let me start off by saying that I had the crappiest run yesterday.  It was utterly horrid!   I ran my 2 1/4 miles, but it was not all the way thru. I had to stop once to pee and twice to walk for a few seconds.  Needless to say, I was quite disappointed in myself.   I only have 10 days left until the is not the time to start sucking it up.  lol  
I was extremely apprehensive about today's scheduled 2 1/2 mile run.   I was afraid I was going to wimp out again and put myself back in my training.  So,  I did 2 things differently today.  First of all, I changed my "pre-workout snack" from a banana to a Snickers Marathon Energy bar (delicious, btw) and instead of drinking water, I tried Powerade Zero.  Well, I'm not sure if it was one or both of the changes, or maybe just sheer determination on my part...but this gal ran the whole 2 1/2 miles...NO STOPS!!  That is a record distance for me!!  I'm so excited and super proud of myself.  Now, that I am on the other side of 2  miles...3.1 is seeming a lot more attainable.  :o)

This is the smile of a girl that KILLED her run!!  :o)


  1. Girl!! That is awesome!! I need to try that Snickers bar... I ran my 2.5 today, but had to take two (yes, TWO!!) short water breaks. Wouldn't it be so cool if we could actually run the entire 3.1 with no breaks???

  2. Great job! I don't think I could run that far if my life depended on it.


Thanks for leaving me your thoughts!
