"Run Errands Mommy"

Wade says this when I go out for a run and it's the cutest!  Usually he will amend it and say Mommy go running which is just as cute!  I am getting back into my regular training now (yay!) and have some goals ahead of me (other than tiring our our dogs - tired Weims are good Weims).  First up is a 5K locally here next month.  Then we are thinking of heading out to Boulder Labor Day weekend to run (hubs is planning to run the full marathon, me the half) - depends on hubby's knee, though - he's heading to the doctor tomorrow to check out what's going on with it.  I figure we'll know soon enough that I can sign up for the Rock & Roll half here if we end up not traveling for the race!  And then, you ready for this?  I'm planning to sign up for the Richmond Marathon this November.  That's right - I am going to do it!  I'm ready to take the leap into marathons (gulp).  I'm getting pretty pumped about it honestly!  I know it will mean a LOT of training, but hey we've done this before since hubs has run 3 marathons in the past year and a half :-)

I'm going to blog about my runs, too, hope ya'll don't mind!  Today I went out for a run and wasn't sure how long I'd go.  3-4 I was thinking.  But then I felt so good that I thought I'd run down some of the side streets on my route for a change of scenery, so I looked it up when I got home and I did 4.5.  (3 years ago if you'd told me I would so casually tack on a half mile, I'd have thought you were dreaming!)  It was a good day for it with cooler temps and I was able to pull off a faster pace than usual . Mind you, I am at best a jogger, but it is my hope that once I start running more and training regularly, I can increase my pace little by little!

Feel free to leave some inspiration for me in comments.  I'll update my training progress...should be starting in June for my half marathon training in earnest!  (yay)
