Because the important moments in life just don’t fit in a status update! I started this blog when I was training for my first ½ Ironman, (70.3 miles) to record what I hoped would be growth and progress but ended up being a huge learning experience. Although fitness is one of the key ingredients to a happy life, it certainly isn't the only ingredient. My blog has evolved to document growth, progress and setbacks in other areas too. From my surprise proposal in Rome and wedding in the fall of 2013, to Mom's devastating stage IV cancer diagnosis and death 2 weeks after I found out I was pregnant. Who knows what shape it will take, but thanks for being along for the ride.

Marathon Training Plan

Here's my training plan! The week day runs are flexible - I do not stick to them rigidly; they are a goal. Sometimes life happens and I miss one, or turn an 8 mile run into a 5 mile run, depending on how I feel. The long Sunday runs are a different story. Those, I am religious about. I never miss a one, or cheat myself on the distance. When I write it in my planner, it happens. Even if I am out of state. Even if it's raining, I'm tired, or not feeling it and even if I begin dreading it two days prior (usually the case for runs over 15 miles). This actually works well with the running I was planning to do anyway for my 1/2 Ironman training!
