I also saw Spirit of the Marathon on January 24th! Yet another sign that I should run Chicago! I thought it was very well done and made me VERY excited to get back out there. I've definitely hit a rough patch since Steamtown.
It's been said that life has a funny mix of work, social life, living arrangements. Generally one never has all of those aligned at the same time. Guess what? I definitely have not! Work has OWNED me. Social? Suffered. I think all the stars are aligned right now to throw it all on me at the same time. Boo. Time to get some semblance of balance back...
Anyway, I'm finally getting back into a running/fitness mode again. I signed up for a couple of races in the meantime - including the Cherry Tree Relay in a couple of weeks! I'll also be taking part in Mudders & Grunters this year. Let's just say they don't lie about the mud part;-) No more excuses it's time to get back. I've been doing weights 2x a week and getting my running back to 25-30 mpw. This included getting a 6 mile run on the bridle path today including some hillwork. On the hills, I ran harder. No excuses - just do it!
You may ask who I'm rooting for in the SB? GO COMMERCIALS! And I have cookies 'n cream cupcakes in support of the calorie rich tradition of Superbowl Sunday! Yippee!
