The Run Streak

Thanks to all who commented on my last post!  It's nice to be welcomed back.

In the spirit of getting back into blogging, this weekend I promise to write a recap of the Tinker Bell Half Marathon (or as much as I remember of it anyway).  There will be pictures and stories of the race and my experience with Team in Training.

I also have a pair of Knucklelights to give away - more details on that soon!

But to the point of this post - the run streak!  Yesterday was day one of 30 days I am going to run in a row.  I am doing the Coach to 5k plan, starting in Week 3, as I haven't run regularly for a couple months and I want to ease back into it.  Yesterday was Week 3, Day 3 (I did the other two days already).  It felt great to get back to it!  I have plans for the rest of the run streak that include hotel treadmills.  I'm going to do this!

I also signed up for a personal trainer.  On the request form I had to write my goals.  I wrote:

"I want to run faster, be able to climb obstacles at the City Chase, and have arms like Michelle Obama."

Aim high, right?  More on that as I get started!

Hello!

It's time for this little blog to get going again.  I am a runner and a blogger and I've been doing very little of both of these things as of late!  But the sun is starting to shine longer every day, and we had a few warm days that reminded me that someday it will be spring.

I've decided to start a run streak, right now, today, even if it's only 20 minutes and it's on a treadmill, I'm going to get out there.  For the next thirty days.  This is partially because I need a kick in the butt, partially because I bought a gym membership I'm not using, and partially because we're finally getting married in May and I need to fit into my dress that fit perfectly in December!  (That's right - married!  And let's all admit right now that the motivation is mostly that.)

So here I am.  Hello to the 10 of you who appear to keep coming back here although there is nothing to say, and hello to any new and returning friends.  Let's get running, shall we?
