My half-marathon is only 8 weeks away. I'm nervous, but hopefully the rest of my training will go ok. And I'll do fine. Time will tell.
I'm trying hard to lose the weight that I've put on over the last 2 years. So far I've lost two pounds and have four more to go. Hopefully I'll keep the two pounds off. I seem to keep gaining and losing the same weight over and over. I'm bumping up my cardio. I rejoined the gym this week. Yesterday I went to the 5:45am spin class. So now I can cross train on my days off from running.
I'm trying not to think about the half being so close. I feel like I have such a LONG way to go to be ready. But I'm registered now.. so I have to go through with it. Deep down I want to. It's a fear that I might not finish, but a thrill to push myself and see what I can do.

My son will play outside at any time and in any weather. When he was little, my family couldn't believe that we played outside all year. I heard "Isn't it too cold to be outside?" You have to remember that our families live in Mississippi and Texas. And although it does get cold there, most days it warms up during the day, and then repeats the process the following day.
Pennsylvania weather was an adjustment for me in that some days it just doesn't feel like it warms up very much in the winter. But that being said, it doesn't stop us from getting outside. And honestly it shouldn't stop you either as long as the temperature isn't dangerously low.
We dress in layers. We wear hats and gloves when we need them. We keep moving. I try to find activities that will keep us active and moving while we are outside.
Sometimes, you just want to eat something with a crunch. And for me, a sweet crunch is even better. I was given the opportunity to try Natural Sins
And I would love to show you a picture of what the pineapple ones look like, but Lil Man ate them all. YES, I mean he ate 2 bags before I could even snap one picture. He liked them that much. I did get to try them, but he ate the majority of them.
I think this is an awesome idea, and I can't wait to get one. This looks like multi-tasking at its finest. I'm talking about The Convertible HDL by PRracer.
What it is? It's a skull cap / headband combo that is equipped to hold a device like a headlamp or a camera. The Convertible HDL is designed with the latest technology. Not only does it light your way, but it has a camera to capture your run.
