and this is my beautiful mother in law (who also ran the half!) and i love her too 🙂
half marathon update – keeping it real.
****since making this video God had answered a prayer! you’ll hear me express my anxiety regarding a specific part of the 1/2 marathon course. this afternoon a friend from church, who lives ON the hill, told me they are staying home from church to cheer on the thousands of runners. including me! she even offered to run up the hill with me. all i can say is ‘thank you God’….truly. i MUST trust that He will give me the strength. *****
well, i’m attempting another video. and keeping it very real. i figure it will either one, make others feel more comfortable in their own skin or two, totally backfire making people cringe with the lack of makeup and slightly heavy breathing. take your pick.
on a side note: the weather is finally turning the corner around here. the drawer fronts of the dresser in the music room have been painted for almost one month now! i’m hoping to finish up the base and have a music room tour soon. 🙂
training for a half marathon. after 5 kids.
its true. on may 8, 2011 i will be running in my first 1/2 marathon.
i am up to eleven miles.
i am in physical therapy for my knee.
i soaked in the tub, drank a recovery drink and iced my knee for 45 minutes after my run this morning.
when i started training in january (in the snow) i begged to stop after 2 miles.
did you know there are supplements with caffeine runners use? i think i took too many this morning as i was sprinting my last mile. ha! whatever it takes.
i have lost zero weight. say WHAT? its true.
i’ll keep you updated!
also, alaina over at recycled interiors posted a really nice interview with me! head on over and say hi.
