T Minus One Week and Counting...

One week to go before our first 5k! Marcus and I (and Seger) have been running A LOT lately. We are really excited to do our first race; although I'm sure I wont be able to run the entire time. On the right you should be able to see my running stats. It is kind of messed up because I didn't realize my sensor was upside down in my shoe for like 3 runs so my pace and distance are a lot off, but you get the idea! I'm pretty proud that I've run around 15 miles in the past week and a half.


It Keeps You Runnin'

Well-- We've done nothing but run for almost the past month; however, our runs are coming in different forms.

Marcus has been coaching track this year. He is our school's new hurdle coach (since he's so experienced and all :) ). He has occasionally been running with me (twice so far) since we are running the Race for the Cure on October 4th. He had his first track meet last week and two more this week!

I've been running 3-5 times a week to train for the 5k. I've been feeling really great about it. I've been getting up at 5:30 to run with Seger. I've never been so sore! My "coach" has been encouraging Seger and I to keep going. We ran a 5k on Saturday morning which was the farthest distance I've ever run. I decided I want to try to do a marathon by the time I'm 30.
