Is Treadmill Season Over Yet?

I cannot tell you how completely excited I am for Spring. It’s been a relatively mild winter for Minnesota but it has been cold enough and icy enough to keep me inside and on the treadmill throughout the majority of my training runs. I need to get outside soon for pure peace of mind if nothing else. ๐Ÿ™‚

The half marathon I’ve been training for (RnR New Orleans) is now less than 2 weeks away! I am so completely psyched to get out and race again. It’s been over 6 months! I have also never actually trained for a half marathon before so I’m excited to see how the training will affect how I feel during and after this race. I am not aiming for a PR this time considering the injury recovery but I would really like to finish pain-free and happy. ๐Ÿ™‚


Let’s Try this Marathon Thing One More Time

When I decided not to runย what would have been my first marathon in October 2015, I more or less dropped this blog too. ย Grad school and a promotion at work consumed my life and I focused on those things and recovery. ย But now I’m back and feel like I have something to write about again!

I’m registered for the Delaware marathon on May 8th. ย I am very excited for this race and am trying to do everything completely by the book this time as possible. ย I’m running my miles to the very best of my ability, working with a coach, watching what I eat, and this week even started adding back in strength and cross training. ย It’s actually feeling like it can happen this time! ย I’m especially excited for what will be the first race post injury: Rock and Roll New Orleans half marathon. ย My only goal for this race is to genuinely have a good time and not hurt myself. ย I think it’s a reasonable goal. ๐Ÿ™‚
