Ran 50.18 Miles in 7 days – YEAH BABY!

November 26th, 2008

Well, my iPod Nano said that I ran 50.18 miles when I was on vacation in San Francisco. I have to say that I am very proud of myself for keeping to my running schedule. Yes, it was hard to get up early (6am) every morning to go run while my husband & son slept in. However, I DID IT.

I ran 6.1 miles today and plan on running on Thanksgiving Day too. If all goes right, I will be over 200 miles run for the month of November. That is an amazing feat for me. I have NEVER, NEVER, EVER run that much in a month….IN MY LIFE.

For anyone reading this thinking that they can’t run like that….YOU CAN! I am 160 + lbs. I am almost 40 years old. I am top heavy and have grey hair. I am a Mom and have a crazy schedule homeschooling. So what?! I can do this. YOU CAN DO IT TOO! It just takes determination and putting yourself first. You have to make the time to get outside and work out. Start with walking…work your way up to running. YOU CAN DO IT!!

Here is to a healthier body and 5 upcoming races by the end of February 2009. I might not be a size 2, but I WILL be a healthy 40 yr. old by the time May comes along. Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
