It’s a busy month for me as we get ready for the Reggae Marathon half marathon. I’m excited about it BUT I’m also happy that it will be over. It’s been a challenge since January going from running to walking this thing. I do want to say that I don’t dislike running BUT I’m just not able to do it outdoors. I will keep trying and maybe one day run a 5k but at this point I’m going to be happy to get back to workouts that I LOVE! Running is a great sport! And I give all you runners out there a big thumbs up for accomplishing everything you do. So amazing! Speaking of running, World Run Day is this Sunday as is the New York City marathon. Huge running weekend! My Jamaican Reggae Marathon friends are in NYC and having a blast.
Tomorrow looks like it will be the last nice day to do a big training walk but we’ll grab as many nice weekend days as we can until the race. If nothing else, the treadmill will do. Not too much longer now! But I can finally say that I know I CAN do it. If I made 10.63 miles, I can do 13.1 RIGHT?
Oh and I have new shoes YEA
I had Brooks before but went with ASICS this time. And get this, I am in a men’s shoe ha ha But I love the fit so far and look forward to trying these bad boys out tomorrow on our long walk. Gotta break them in you know! I needed a bit more support in the ankle as my feet roll and I have just been having some pretty painful knee issues. I really love The Running Depot. They have been so helpful over the last year and I can’t wait to get my 13.1 sticker LOL
I had a goal for November to join in on the 21 days before Thanksgiving challenge with Leslie Sansone’s Walk Club but with all the training and other workouts I’m doing, I am just going to follow along and cheer everyone else on. I can’t wait to get back to my Walk Away the Pounds workouts though so maybe we’ll have a challenge here on the blog come Feb. if anyone is interested.
And last thing for today…..we have a winner
With use of Random.org, the winner of the Bender Ball giveaway is Carrie Symes. Congrats Carrie! I sent you an email.
Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
