Running Streak – Week 1 check in

Good morning! And congratulations on making it through the first week of the New Year! How are you doing on those resolutions?

Outside of my running streak, I haven’t really spoken much to what my other resolutions for this year are. I have a few that are personal that I will leave off of the blog for now. But I do want to share one other resolution of mine. This year I am going to make the effort to start being more honest with myself and others around me. I spend a lot of energy trying to please others, and I’m learning that it is usually not worth it. Have you experienced this? I waste a lot of time stressing over what others are going to think of decisions I make for myself. When I say ‘others’, I’m talking about people who I love. And I’m realizing that if I love them, and they love me, then it should not matter what decisions I make for myself. So that’s where I’m at. Like anytime we try to adjust our thought patterns, this is not going to be easy; but I believe it is manageable.

Our Old City Weekend

Although I have been to St Augustine numerous times before, this trip was especially exciting for more than one reason. Of course it was exciting because of my half marathon! But it was also special because this was mine and Stevens first opportunity to do St Augustine together.

If you have never been, the city of St Augustine is super cute and a lot of fun! And this trip did not disappoint!

Motivation Monday No. 8

Happy Monday afternoon!! I am writing this as I ride back into town from St Augustine (don’t worry I’m not driving, my chauffer Steven has the wheel!)

This weekend was the best! I will have a race review and recap of the weekend up shortly!! Although I should probably focus on adult things like unpacking, laundry, and dinner first when I get home; so please be patient with me, but I promise the review will be up this week!

Pumpkin Soup for the Runners Tapering Soul

Tapering. Sucks. Nuf’ said.

This week is all about resting, staying healthy, and preparing my mind and body for the 13.1 miles I will run on Sunday. I’ve gotten mixed opinions about tapering for the half: some say it isn’t necessary, some say to taper for two weeks out. I settled with a one week mileage cutback – giving myself plenty of recovery time.
