The power within yourself to be amazing.  We all have it; we just forget that this power is here with us, all the time.  The door we forget to open can lead us down an amazing road.

Just turn the knob and open it. It’s there.  Believe that it is.

Flighty blogger I am!

When someone goes a long time without writing in their blog, ESPECIALLY if it is a blog devoted to Health and Fitness, folks come to the same conclusion for the most part; “yep…. she fell off the wagon into a pile of Moon Pies!”

Well I am here to tell you – NO.  I just got lazy with my writing – *sigh* yet again.  As for my training, yes I am still at it. I do admit though, I am experiencing runner’s burnout a bit.  Maybe it is the cooler weather, or maybe the training that I have put myself through, either way I am a little tired.

I missed a couple of runs last week, due to ongoing foot soreness from that 20+ miler on Oct 22nd.  I took a couple of doggie walks, and rode the bike at the gym for some crosstraining.  I am back at it again this week though!

I finally bought a better pair of running shoes, since my Nike Pegasus were bottoming out at mile 18 on a regular basis.  I found some Brooks Glycerin 8’s at DSW for $70.  They were 2010’s model, and had just recently been replaced by the Glycerin 9’s.  I felt safe enough to try them out, instead of the $130 9’s.

The first run was a little sketchy at first, but after my left foot loosened up, I was able to comfortably run.  The next day I ran a little over 5 miles, and enjoyed the shoes even more!  The third run I really enjoyed them!

I’m going to use them on my first long run tomorrow.  I am curious to see how they do.  Tomorrow’s run is a 14 miler, so I should have a really good idea how these will hold up, when I do 20 miles again the next week, and the marathon in December.

Which reminds me….

I finally registered!!

Break-ups are hard to deal with in relationships and in dating.  Break-ups when it comes to training can be just as challenging.  There is that nagging thought that sticks you in the brain, like a pin poking at you, when … Continue reading
