107 miles plus!

Closing in on the 110 mile mark! WHOO HOO! I am loving this challenge. This morning Ginny Mac and I jogged/walked 2.51 miles in our neighborhood. It was kind of cool and a bit foggy. It was a nice work out.

Looking forward to a Friday run with Cynthia!

Sooo close!

Woke up at 4:30 a.m. this morning. Watch a mediocre Jennifer Love Hewitt movie on netflix. Then decided to go out and try to get to my 100 mile mark. I should have really studied harder in Math class. Just entered in my 2.51 miles to the Tall Mom 1000 mile challenge spreadsheet.. and I am at 99.93 miles! UGH! Think I'll get in another mile tonight!

Had a great jog/walk this morning with fellow TNT'er Wendie! We did 3.77 miles in 52 minutes. Beautiful sunny morning along the river!

Heart HAPPY Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!! I want to start off by sharing this quote:

"If you must love your neighbor as yourself, it is at least as fair to love yourself as your neighbor." ~Nicholas de Chamfort

We teach our children to love one another. And I agree, it is important. Just don't forget you!

Today on Valentine's Day.. I hope you enjoy all of the traditional pleasures we associate with this special day... love, hugs, kisses, candy, flowers, etc. Just don't forget to do something good for YOU! Like take a walk, run, dance, eat right..

I started my morning off with some yummy oatmeal, then lunch was yogurt and fresh blueberries. Dinner tonight is Brazilian Salpicao.. grilled chicken, ham, rice, green apples. Then of course, dark chocolate for dessert! 3.16 miles today too!

Miles to go..

I committed to run/walk/ride 1000 miles in 2011! I am behind, but not giving up. I have over 80 miles so far this year...

Lost the soreness from the Half on Wednesday, so got 3 miles in. Did 2 miles yesterday with Vickie, rain and all! :)

Hoping to get a jog in this weekend, and maybe some bike time with Bela!

Melbourne Half.. 2 bridges, and other thoughts!

Well I did it! I was able to complete me goal on Sunday of beating my 3h19m Disney Half time at the Melbourne and Beaches Half. My final time was 3h2m.. so I am very proud of that!

But WOW, that second bridge was killer! I felt great while walking the walking/jogging the first one, but by mile 10 or 11 I was experience pain in my calves.

But I met a few inspirational folks along the way that helped me push to the finish line!

The weekend left me with lots of happy feelings of accomplishment, and just one question.. what's next? :)
