Holiday Time Running Woes + New Treadmill Mind Game + See you next year :)

I noticed that around this time of year there are more obligations than normal. More chores. More gatherings. More purchases. More. More. More. and all my workouts were getting pushed. My blog posts were getting pushed. It’s not like I wanted to skip them, in fact the more I did, the worse I felt because this is something that I really enjoy and gets me excited about the upcoming race. So I set my clock for an hour earlier to go to the gym and run in the morning. Full disclosure…

Daylight Savings Time killed my running hour. Treadmills it is.

I had all my gear ready for a brisk run in the park, when I looked out the office window to see that it was already getting dark. Daylight Savings Time killed my remaining hour of sunlight! Last week I was still a little on the fence, thinking maybe I could still run outside, but looking out at that moment I knew that would make me miserable. Decision made, treadmills it was. I pulled up some numbers on my phone and started driving towards my house…

RunRecap October 9 – 15| Run317 Fountain Square

It’s been rough getting back into my workout routine. With a crazy work week; it was super hard to find time. (That’s why there isn’t a long run on the activity list -_-) Luckily, I had already put the Run317 Fountain Square 5k on my calendar. It was a much needed stress relief…

Nutrition Goals: Round 2!

I have successfully made the first round of changes to my diet! Remy would be pleased. The biggest difference for me is not going out to lunch.

Getting Back, AND THE FIRST OFFICIAL INFO EMAIL ABOUT THE RACE HAS ARRIVED!!!!

Today, I can say that mentally I feel fine about missing two weeks of progress as vacations are always worth it. I can also say that physically I don’t feel fine and am equal parts dreading / looking forward to getting back into the swing of my workout activities. 

More importantly though – The first official RunDisney Princess Half Marathon 2018 info email came through today!!!! It says…

Mental Highs, Lows, and Motivation I’ve Found with Running

After you get ready, step outside, and start running you will quickly realize there are no distractions here. There is nothing to hide behind – no social to look at, no book/reader, no games – just you moving your arms in cadence as you jog along. Your body might be feeling good, but your mind starts to wander – and sometimes it goes negative.

RunRecap August 21 – 27| Colts Football 5k!

Early this Saturday, I got up to run the 2017 Colts 5k. The finish line was on the 50 yard line in Lucas Oil Stadium! Running through the giant inflatable horse head towards the 50 was really cool, and super fast. You entered the tunnel, hit the field, and crossed. Here is the very shaky video of me crossing the line!
