Had a great yoga workout tonight. Was even able to do the twisting triangle (although it would be much easier if I got one of those blocks)! Wahoo! Thanks, Bob.
Today is Day 1 of marathon training.
How fitting is it that the first song my iPhone played during the run was “She’s a maniac”?
I must be a maniac for thinking I could run a marathon in 30 weeks.
OMG. In 209 days, I run a marathon.
Thank you to the more than 40 people who entered the contest for a registration to the Madison Mini Marathon! I was absolutely blown away by the response and the awesome advice you’ve all shared.
If you haven’t taken a look, please take the time and read through the advice shared on this post.
You guys are seriously AMAZING.
Ok, so what you’ve been waiting for.
Keegan – you’re the winner! And how true is your comment? I always regret not working out. Except for tonight. I totally bailed on it. And I don’t feel guilty because I have a box of Girl Scout Cookies to keep me company.
Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will get you the information to register.
Once again, thank you to everyone who entered, Tweeted, Facebooked, etc about this giveaway.
And a special thank you to the Madison Mini Marathon for making this possible!
You people rock.
What the heck?
Today I was trying to set up an account at USPS.com so I could order stamps and not have to go to the post office to get them.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this –>
I couldn’t figure it out. I mean… THAT’S MY LAST NAME!
Yeah. You read that right.
But more on that in a bit.
In searching for races to fill my training calendar this summer, I came across the Madison Mini-Marathon. Many of my friends have done this race in years past, and I’ve only heard positive things about the race. So last week, I put Madison Mini-Marathon on my “Maybe” list. One thing that intrigued me was the M2 Challenge, presented in connection with the Summerfest Rock ‘n’ Sole Half Marathon.
What’s the M2 Challenge? Basically, if you run both the Madison Mini-Marathon AND the Summerfest Rock ‘n Sole Half Marathon, you get a special two-event medal! I’m not one to turn down an extra medal. Plus, it’s free as long as you complete both races! EEK!
So guess what? I’m now registered for both races!!! I figure that the Madison Mini-Marathon will be a killer training run for the Lakefront Marathon, plus I have a bunch of friends running the race. It’s a win-win!
Oh yeah. About that giveaway.
I am so excited to announce that the organizers of the Madison Mini-Marathon have given me A FREE ENTRY TO THE RACE to giveaway here on my blog! How awesome is that? I know. Pretty damn awesome.
What do you have to do to win?
Well, as my long-time readers know, I am basically an open book. I’ve posted about losing my pants while running at the gym, asked you if you fart while exercising and have even written about what underwear to wear when working out.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to force you to share your most embarrassing workout moment (although that would be AWESOME. And please do share. I love those stories). What I want to know is:
What is the greatest piece of exercise/health/weight loss/running/fitness advice you’ve ever heard?
