An Exciting Development

TGIF!

This week flew by because we were so, so busy- but I’m super excited it’s the weekend, none the less!

Like I mentioned yesterday, we had our annual work Christmas party last night.

It was a huge success, a lot of fun, and everything just looked gorgeous!

There was some incredible food.

A fully stocked bar.

And loads of very happy people in attendance! It was a great night, for sure.

Needless to say, I’m feeling very sleepy today. Not to mention my feet are killing me- I wore such cute shoes yesterday (black suede pumps, about 5 inch heels) but MAN did they ever do a number on my tootsies.

Yow.

In other news, I was extremely excited to find this waiting for me when I got home last night.

I was especially excited when I saw that it was their New Years issue! WOO!

Can you guess which “Resolution” I was the most interested in?

(Hint- it’s one of these…)

Well, if you guess “Run Your First Half Marathon”- then you guessed right!

Running has always been something that I’ve longed to be good at. After a couple failed race attempts earlier in the year, I vowed never to sign up for another race again…until I had solidly trained and knew without a doubt that I could do it.

So, I’m working backwards a little bit. I’m going to train for the half marathon…and then sign up for it.

Tricky, huh?

I’ve wanted to tell people that I was running a half for sure this spring, but I held back on this exciting little development until I knew for sure I had the guts to follow through with it!

As far as which race I’ll be running, I’m going to sign up for the Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon┬áthat will be happening here on May 4th.

I’m feeling especially excited about it because after I run it (which I will!) I can say that I ran a half marathon before I got married!

I have no idea why this is important or exciting to me- but it is.

Go figure.

(Fun fact– my little cousin, Chad- who really isn’t so little anymore as he’s a freshman in college- ran the Fall Prairie Fire half marathon and won his age group. Talk about impressive.)

So, in preparation for my race, I’ve downloaded a new app to help me with my training.

Yes, I know it says it’s a 10k training app.

That’s because I have a good 5-7 weeks before I actually need to start the training for the half. That being said, I feel like I should at least be able to run 5-6 miles without stopping before attempting to run 13.1

Just a thought.

Snazzy, right? This thing is great. I plan on trying it out on Sunday- I’ll be sure and let you guys know how it goes!
