Oh my life is tough when you are a full time working mom who just happens to like to use all of her spare time to train for endurance events. Blogging has fallen by the wayside, but I am not ready to give up my blog just yet. I have a new goal in life people. It is so large that it just sounds silly to say it at this point. I want to run a marathon in all 50 states. Umm…1 state down, lol. I actually have 2 friends who are working on this goal, one has 13 states and one has 36. I think it’s a great bucket list lifetime goal sort of thing. I am signed up for 2 marathons before the end of the year, Nov 7th in Huntington WV and Dec 11th in Rehoboth DE. So my 2011 I will have racked up 3 states. I have my eyes on April in Louisville KY and May in Pittsburgh PA. So, if all goes as planned, by my 32nd birthday in June I will have racked up 5 states. Not too shabby. To join the 50 state club, you have to have 10 states. I don’t think 4 marathons a year is realistic long term, but I hope to do 2 a year.
I have a half marathon this weekend and I am really excited to run it. My long runs have been really good lately. This has been the best season of running I have ever had. Think becoming a vegetarian has anything to do with it?
Harper is doing awesome. She is getting so big I just can’t take it. She has a huge temper, but is mostly sweet. But when she is mad, look out! Just like her mom. She will be 17 months soon. It just doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. She loves to dance, loves animals and unfortunately tv!
