Well went out for my run today and it started out this morning with a lovely 17 degrees and a windchill of 6. I layered like crazy... I felt like a marshmallow, but I was warm and I ran my first 3.2 straight since my surgery. I wore my brand shoes and inserts and they felt pretty good.
These are a picture of my new Saucony Trail Runners and my inserts.
They were great with the snow and ice (YES SNOW) on the ground today. I also got myself a two piece outfit.
Than of course my inserts made my feet even happier in them. My neuroma didn't bother me so much until the end. I decided to change my route today a bit... I decided to end my run on a nice big hill. Yes end on a hill. I did it, I figured I shouldn't avoid them if I'm going to prepared for my 1/2 in June with TNT. I heard there are a ton of hills.
This weekend was a bit of a disappointment, even though I did go out on Saturday, I wanted to do more, it was just a crazy weekend, we had a Christmas Party for the kids at the church and I got to help the kids sing some songs..... I have to admit I think they helped me out more.
I also volunteered to do a talent show at our church in April. I thought this year we collect food for the local food banks and also come up with a spring theme. Oh and my mentor for TNT, Fred, said there is a local group that prepares you for marathons starting in March. They start with 5K's and work their way up. He said if you complete the program they give you a metal, so I told him I was in.
Well, looks like I'm filling up my schedule and 2009 isn't here yet. I'm really looking forward to it and I'm very excited I know that this year will be much better.
