Route 66 Countdown: 13 days

I can't believe I'll be in Oklahoma in 11 days! I can't wait to see everyone!

Yesterday, in training, I ran/walked 9 miles. I'm pretty sure I jogged at least as much as I walked if not more which I was not even planning on doing so I was super psyched about that. I averaged less than 15 min/mile which was my goal so that was good also. Not super speedy but we all have to start somewhere.

I had lunch with my dear friend Jennifer yesterday and she reminded me that the Pittsburgh Marathon is in May so today I signed up for the half marathon! I am quite confident that I can run it! I'm so happy to have a new goal to focus on and work towards so I don't stop after all this training.

Who wants to join me in Pittsburgh on May 2, 2010???

Maybe this could kick start me to get back in shape after the baby. If I continue to stay halfway in shape during the pregnancy than maybe I can walk it by may? If nothing else, it would give me a great reason to come see you:) I really want you to be here for the birth of this baby, when is pitts spring break?

You betcha I want to join you. The thing is, after Route 66, you'll keep increasing and you might even do the ENTIRE marathon! Think about that.
