My sister found an 8K Turkey Trot (4.97 miles) which runs on Thanksgiving that I really really want to do; however, that is ten days away and I'm only at 1.5 miles, so as the Magic 8 Ball would say: Outlook Not So Good. I'm not going to give up, though...I like having goals, even if they are impossible to reach! My ultimate goal is to run the half marathon in April with my sister and since it is five months away, I still feel optimistic about that! Okay, so this marks the end of my training update for this week...catch up on the subject again next week! Stay tuned!!
I mean...I feel like it was just yesterday that I was stuck in the Penn Square parking garage for 30 minutes trying to exit due to all of the Christmas traffic and, alas, it is all starting up again.
It feels like just yesterday I was sitting in a waiting room intently listening for the first cries of my nephew and, alas, he is going to be a one year old on Saturday.
It feels like just yesterday that I rocked my beautiful baby girl to sleep and, alas, she is now an eight year old teenager (yeah, that's not a typo).
"Thirty Years Old" always seemed the distant future to me and it is going to be a reality in less than two years...how time flies by...faster and faster...
