Upcoming Races

Tags

Well, I’m all done with Princess 🙂 It went fairly well and I took off about 4 minutes on the 10K and the half from the WDW January weekend. Especially given the humidity, I’m quite happy 🙂

So now I’m in full blown kick my butt mode. My schedule coming up is exciting (and I’m trying to be a good girl and not add more races…but it’s so hard!!)
Does anyone else have trouble not adding more races? Part of it is the bling…I loooove the medals 🙂 I also just love the motivation to do it. And I like to travel too. So it makes it more fun for me!

What’s on tap:

-March: NYC Half

-April: Nike DC

-November: NYC Full

 

What I’m tempted to add:

-May: Vancouver or Mini Indy

-June: San Diego  and Seattle, or maybe a sprint tri

-July: See Jane Run

-August: Iron Girl Tri

 

What I plan to add:

-Nov: Las Vegas RNR

-January 2015- Dopey

Prepping for Princess

I’m officially 2 days away from flying out to Florida for Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend 🙂 I registered for the Glass Slipper Challenge (10K on Saturday, Half on Sunday) about 7 months ago now? I’m excited for this one since it’ll be my first Princess weekend and it’s a girls weekend with my sister.

Just look at these medals – aren’t they pretty?

I’m getting ready for the races right now by working on my costumes (muahahah) and watching the Olympics. Did anyone catch the ice dancing yesterday? Meryl Davis & Charlie White = amazing! Ice princess/ prince 🙂

Are there any other Princesses out there?

Belated Valentine’s Day :)

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you all had a great time with your loved ones, whether they be significant others/ friends/ pets/ family/ yourself 🙂

I celebrated Valentine’s Day by getting a massage 🙂 Can I just say, massages are amazing! I started getting massages regug larly a year ago to help with my legs recovering after running – it’s been life changing. There’s just something about getting a good massage that makes everything bugging you go away – plus it is soooo satisfying to treat yourself sometimes 🙂

 

Kicking My Butt

Tags

,

So one of my big goals for 2014 is to kick my butt into shape – quite literally! I am working with a trainer at the gym now to help me with the buildup for my big race: NYC!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am for it…I started applying to the lottery for it immediately after completing my first full marathon. Last year, I finally got in – and then I got peroneal tendonitis and had to take a break from running for awhile.

The goal this year – kick butt at NYC and become a stronger runner! I’m also trying to lose weight and get in better shape…it’s really a full combination of things that I’m working on, so I’ll be posting a fair amount about that. I’m still working out my schedule, but race wise, I am ready =)

I’ve been playing with writing a blog for a bit, but my old one wasn’t being used very often. So now I’m going to try out a new one.

I figure I’ll start things off on here with an easy post. It’s time for the Winter Olympics! Wooo bring on the fun 🙂

Favorite Video

I love Daft Punk & the Russian Police Choir performing “Get Lucky” = AMAZING! It just makes me smile and laugh so much!
