Running Update

I am back after an extended time away from blogging. I do want to thank everyone for all your words of support and encouragement as I attempted a personal best in the Country Music Half Marathon. Alas, it was not to be. The temperature on race day was really warm, and about half way through the race I realized I was not going to get anywhere near the time for which I had hoped. I ended up missing the mark by thirty minutes, which is really bad. The day was brutal for a number of folks, with over forty people being taken to the hospital for heat-related issues.

Soooo, I’ve recommitted to breaking two hours at the St. Jude Half Marathon in December. The weather should be much more cooperative, and hopefully all my weight goals will be in place. So far I have kept off most of what I lost, so I’m looking at around 5-10 more pounds. In the end, the most important thing for me is staying fit and healthy, but I would love, love, love to break two.

So it’s back to the pavement, a little strength training, and lay off the fries…
