Lace Up and Dream Big

Lace Up and Dream Big

It’s true you know. Running has done a-may-zing things for my life. And I may have chosen a race! Athleta Iron Girl Santa Rosa Women’s Half Marathon on November 10th. Yikes! That is just around the corner and I need to so some serious training! I found out I have lost 10 1/2 lbs since my injury. And just be clear, it was 10 1/2 lbs of muscle. It was/is disheartening, I feel like so much of my training has been wasted. Well not wasted, but gone? I do know I am being a little hard on myself, but I feel like I have so much work to do to gain those pounds of muscles back.

Back to the race. There is a four-hour time limit (totally doable), but I can’t seem to find the course map. I am sure it has everything nothing to do with my brain working overtime. One step at a time. Right?! Or rather one assignment at a time. One assignment taking far longer than I anticipated. Its been a long week!

I hope each and every one of you pretty awesome people are having a wonderful start to the weekend. I just know you will find a heart and I look forward to seeing what is going on with all of you soon!

Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. Good luck on your come back. Having a clear goal with the half marathon will make everything a little easier for you. You’ll do great! 🙂


  2. Long slow runs. Your body simply needs a little reminding that it can handle the distance. That includes knowing how to drink and enjoy a sweet during long runs because, believe me, sometimes during a long run, the last thing you want is a drink or a sweet. Good luck, I’ll be cheering you on from afar! 🙂


    • That is what I was thinking, long runs I mean. The farthest I’ve ran is just over 7 miles so far. And that’s the majority of running the miles not all. I feel like I have a lot to build back up still! Thank you so much! 🙂


  3. You can do it! Patience with yourself will probably be the key (this from a woman with a problem with self-patience). Just take each day as it comes and before you know it, you’ll be running like the wind!
