Looking Ahead

The last few months have been trying.  Lupus is no joke!  My once abundant focus, energy and determination comes and goes depending on the day and my joint pain and fatigue.  Training has gone up and down and has involved a few great weeks of running and quite a few weeks of non-existent running.

I'm quite probably crazy, but I needed to get out of this rut, and what better way than to sign up for a race, right?!  For me, that usually involves signing up for a trail race somewhere...but this time, I signed up for a ROAD marathon.  What the..?  I know, I know...  

Holly and I decided we need a girls trip and a good challenge, and we've always wanted to run the Little Rock Marathon.  So, we're making it happen March 1, 2015!  And this year the theme is pirates!  SO COOL!

 I really have NO idea how training will go, if I'll still be able to train enough to run a marathon.  If I have to go in to the race slightly under trained then I can handle that.  If if have to go in to the race highly under trained, well...I'll see what happens.

It's kind of been in my "bucket list" of things I want to do, run a road marathon, and Little Rock is supposed to be one of the most fun out there.

Training starts next week!  :)

  1. You're brave! Marathons are too dang hard for me. I like staying on the trail where no one is around and I can shuffle and walk where needed versus pounding the pavement for 26.2. :o) Just have fun with it and give yourself a lot of grace. Take what it gives you and be happy that you are still out there running! So glad that you aren't letting your illness define you and you make a point of making the best out of every situation!

    1. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542

  2. Thanks Don! I'm so excited to start training for something again (even a road race! ha!) and to have that structure and routine. It's strangely comforting to me? Hoping it goes well and just going to take it day by day. Excited for you and your first 50 miler coming up!

  8. Herpes has been one of the most significant virus in the US now, and its spreading really fast, and the government are only producing medical drugs that can suppress it but rather keep on eliminating the African herbal doctors who were able to discover a way to completely cure the virus...I'm delighted to be finally cured of herpes 2 after i applied doctor Oyagu herbal medicine for two weeks ,,, I can tell you, I went back a month later to confirm my status and i was still negative.. If i could get cured, why do you think You can't?, you believe in the lying government and medical scientists and keep spending money on buying their stupid pills.. I'm glad I am finally cured from it forever...apply oyaguherbalhlm@gmail.com herbal formula.
