My day of rest

I had every intention of doing some strength training tonight (while watching the biggest loser of course!) but I am not feeling well so it is officially a day of rest for me. I'll need to be sure that in addition to running I find the time to make up for it tomorrow. I did manage to once again get in my 7 servings of fruits and vegetables today! YAY ME!! (maybe that's why I'm not feeling well - my body has gone into shock!)

I decided what my first half marathon is going to be and I am VERY excited about it. The More Magazine's (women's only) half marathon takes place in Central Park on April 15th. Registration for this opens up on January 9th and I have marked my calendar!

I found a doable training program for me - with a little time to spare to be sure I'm ready. Anybody else doing this? Anybody else preparing for their FIRST half marathon? I'd love to compare notes!


  1. Hi, this is Jill from "Run With Jill" - can you please email me your email and snail mail address for the blog gift exchange? I will need that for your blog exchange buddy :). Just respond to this message, it will take you to my email, or here it is in case you have some problems: runlikeagirljp@gmail.com

    I think it'd be a blast to run a half in NY!! I think it'd be a great first for you :).

  2. I'm not training for my first half - but it is so exciting that you are! Such a great goal, and a sense of accomplishment when you reach it!

    Thanks for the follow on my blog, I look forward to reading about your training!
