Did that sound like Forrest, Forrest Gump? Well I meant for it to.

Quick update: 4.6 miles tonight. Longest yet. Ran to K's house and back. (No uber-cool fanny pack to hold the water yet. Still planning around hydration stops.) Have to admit I stopped halfway for a little break, but I still did it. Feels good. I feel like I've seen more of my town in the last month than in the last three years. My body feels different. I can't believe I'm able to do this.

E's aunt Mar emailed me today about possibly doing a half with her--I asked what she does and how she trained. I have been thinking for a while that signing up for a race would be good motivation, and would also help me feel more like a "real" runner.

A goal.

A deadline.

A reason.

The race she suggested was the Cowtown Half Marathon in October. Sounds like fun.

What do you think?


  1. wow, from not running a couple months ago to running 4.6 miles. Go girl!!
    You're doing much better than me. Good to hear about your little fam and congrats on the vows. :)

  2. There is another 5/10k race in Folsom.

    And there is this website to train.
