Did I Mention That This is an Addiction?

So I ran my second 5k and now I'm thinking I want to train for a half marathon. I still have a few steps to go before that but I love the feeling of race day and I want to do more! I know my body can do it and the more I stick to training the better I become! My goal is to run in the Disney World Half Marathon in 2011 that gives me a little over a year to train.

My race was great the other day. So much fun! I shaved almost 3 minutes from my race in September. I'm still slower than I would like to be but as long as I'm improving I'm happy. Now I hope to stick to my training and keep moving forward. I have 30 more pounds to lose as well so when I do that I'm sure I'll speed up just from that.

Hi I'm still at it

I have still been training but at my own pace. With winter setting in my knee has been giving me problems and so has my asthma. Nothing too major though I went to the doctor and got a new inhaler to help me out. Also I haven't injured myself since I have bought new shoes! I LOVE them! I went to a running store and they fit me for a pair, I felt like I had new legs! Everyone needs to get a professional shoe fitting, it will change your running life. :)
I now have joined a team that is going to do the couch to 5k program and I'm going to get up to running the whole 5k!
My second race is tomorrow and it looks like it is going to be cold and rainy/snowy, it will make it all that more rewarding!
