Marathon training? Well it's going.. sorta. I've had one flawless 18 miler and a few decent training runs. The treadmill quit. I revived it. Then it quit again. For good. Then I had a cold, then another cold...sinus...upper respiratory infection or whatever you call it and had another lousy mileage week.
So...for the good news!
I've got my first race of the season coming up! Yay! It's a 4 miler which is a distance I've never raced before so automatic PR right? It's local here in town, The Oskar Blues 4 Miler. I am officially registered for this baby. I got news for my sinus issues: YOU BETTER CLEAR THAT MESS UP FOOL! My speed hasn't been too up to par due to the issues I've had this go-round during training but I'm hoping to make this a fun run with cool green and white stockings and shamrock tattoos. woo.
Back in February my sister, her kid and my kid all ran the Frostbite Fun Run again this year! It was windy and super cold but the sun was out and beautiful. They all did awesome, beating their times from last year. They were all right around 9 minutes this year!

Also going through this lousy season, I've been reminded of a few things that I've forgotten.. There's more to me than just running! I sing, play guitar, have family and a J-O-B. And as I've mentioned before, my first priority is here:
|Love of my life.|
My second priority is here:
Now it's time for me to get my ice-cream butt to the gym and work it out.
