Tapering already

I have started this post roughly 1,000 times. Where to start? It has been so long I don’t even know where to start. Marathon training has been going. I have had some major ups and downs but I am feeling pretty good with 3 weeks to go.

This coming weekend is my half marathon I am running with D.H. I am hoping to PR. D.H. will only have one day off before I half after working fourteen 16 hour days. Life has been a little crazy here. Since he is gone I am now U10 soccer coach, and I suck! Marissa is already PRing in XC.  I also got a part-time job, I will start the week of the marathon and will be well into taper.

 My long runs during training sucked, I only managed to squeeze in two 20 mile runs, and a few 18 and 16s. That is life, I am almost looking more forward to the next training cycle because I feel like I am learning so much.

All of this running is helping me drop some weight, this is good because I have not been eating as well as I should  :/ I am going to end this with some pictures to sum up since I last posted and let’s hope I get better about signing on. Thanks!

Beginning Summer    

Other summer fun:


  1. You look amazing!!! You should be so proud of yourself for setting goals and striving for them! :)

  2. Thanks Tara, ideally I would like to lose about about 10 more pounds. It is time to up my carb intake for the marathon so it won't happen until after.
