ON THE ROAD AGAIN...
Ok, so this week isn't going as planned. First of all, I'm still "injured". Maybe it's heel spurs? I don't know. But needless to say, my husband kept me from the gym yesterday because he knew I would over do it, and today I have night class immediately after work, so Tuesday is a "non gym day" anyway. Sad. Tomorrow is my big day back, I have to make up my miles!!!
Being back to work after break is, well, work. Tough beginning of the week, but we'll see how it ends up. The kids are a little wild and all of us are craving another break...the line going around school is, "I need a vacation from vacation!" The ride back from VA Beach was great, it went by really quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed our game "Read the town sayings" below the town's name. For instance, the town I'm from, Manchester CT, has the slogan, "City with village charm". It's hysterical. Next time we go to VA Beach we will write them down. (We're nerds, leave us alone...)
Till next time, do what makes you feel BEAUTIFUL!

Above is where I've been running!!! My parent's house in in this beach community in Virginia Beach called Sandbridge. Here http://siebertrealty.com/cgi-bin/previews09.pl?id=32708&unitfile=units2k9 is the link to look at the BEAUTIFUL home! My parents did some rennovations to the kitchen, and it looks great. We've really been enjoying spending time here, even though it's really cold and the beach isn't too enticing with the wind and low temps! But we've been working out and loving it. (I will not mention the awesome valentines day sugar cookies that keep finding their way to me with a cup of tea. That never happened. Don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise!)
So, thus part one of 1/2 marthon training has been detailed for your reading delight! Anyone who wants to join my half marathon-ing just let me know!!! I know the race I want to run is April 26, but I plan to do a second one on August 30. If you want to run in it, my church is organizing a group to do it together. You can only register by March 1 because if you do, you dedicate any money you can raise to donate to cancer research. Otherwise, it's a hard marathon to get into so you get a guaranteed entry. Here is a link all about the race: http://www.halfmarathons.net/usa_half_marathons_new_york_ny_city_half_marathon.html.
Till tomorrow! Give me your ideas, tips, etc!!!
