Guess what everyone?

Tomorrow is Monday. Which means….training starts! I am sooo excited. I can’t believe it’s only been 2 weeks since my first half marathon…and it’s 9 weeks from my second! Since I consider myself a seasoned half marathoner (hah) I’m going to go about my training a bit differently. Since I know I can put the mileage in which was my only goal for the last half, this time I’m doing speed work…and hills. Lots of hills. Hills on hills on hills. My run tomorrow is 3 miles around the neighborhood. Which means about 300 feet of elevation climb. It actually made me feel a lot better realizing the hills I’ve run around home for years are comparable to the hills of the race….

Anyways, I thought it would be fun to reflect on my training from my last half. 

Lots of running….Image

Lots of shoes necessary to get through my training.

ImageCompression socks to hold my legs together after long runs (I swear that’s what it feels like they’re doing!)

Pre-run fuel.

ImageRoller of death.


Tan lines to prove it.

ImagePre-race day jitters. (And let’s be honest-whole time of training jitters.)


Finish line pain bliss.

ImageAnd enough craziness to do it all again!


Happy running friends! Here’s to another fun 9 weeks!
