Hey hey girls and guys! Well, I am back...this time I PROMISE! I didn't have Internet for a while, which made it pretty difficult to post on a regular basis. But, now I'm all set up and ready to go!
What have I been up to? Running, running, training, grad school, work, work, running, school. Sound busy enough for you?! haha
I just started back to grad school, one semester down, three more to go. So far its going pretty good and its GREAT to have an awesome gym at my university to go to for free.
Im about 3 weeks away from my second half marathon! I don't feel 100% ready for it, but I really wanted to do it because it is the very first half marathon that is being hosted in my home town. Gotta represent!! As part of my training I have been running small races just about every weekend. This past weekend I ran a 5K called "Run for the Hill". It was hosted by my old highschool, so you KNOW I just had to do it.
The boy came for support and took some GREAT pictures!
Pretending to cross the finish line while we waited for the race to start.

Taking off at the start! Im the one in the gray top and the black shorts
The start of the race was an awesome down hill start, but that was a tease, the rest of the race was ALL UP HILL!!
Starting up the hill
Racing for the finish!
Thumbs up after the race!
I ended up with a time of 26:02, which I was happy with. I was hoping for a sub 25 time, but with all those hills, I thought my time wasn't too far from my goal. Hey, there is always next time! I also got 2nd place in my age group, so that was even better! :)
This Saturday I have another race that is a 10K. I am trying to get more noticed in the running community and make more friends that are runners. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as getting sponsors, or running for certain charities? Please let me know if anyone has any experience with this!
Hope everyone is having a great day and I'm sooo happy to be back and start to catch up with everyone again!
