Half marathon training update

Dear friends,
It's been too long since my last update. Today's run was 7 miles, one hour 38 minutes with an average 14 minute mile. I felt great during and after. I was running in 10 minute intervals and 5 minute walks. 

Apparently, I've outrun these shoes but I'm not giving up on them until after the half marathons. I plan on running one in October and November. This all seems so crazy but I know that its doable.

Here is my food prep for the week. I have a need to eat healthy but I hate to chop. Nature has that taken care of for me: sugar snap peas, grapes, strawberries, grape tomatoes, bananas, and I made hard boiled eggs. I've seen a lot of tips for eating healthy but none fit my lazy style. Truthfully, being as lazy as I am doesn't have to mean poor eating. I call these boxes my snack boxes.


  1. You are doing so amazing! I am really proud of you and I love seeing your progress.

  2. Good luck with the races! I changed shoes a few weeks before my first half, but it was necessary. My old shoes gave me terrible blisters.


I love all comments, questions, and positive feedback. Constructive criticism is questionable. Joking, a little. :)
