Starting Over...Again

It seems like I start over a lot. I get in a great running groove and then get burnt out and end up taking off a day...which turns into a week...then turns into 2 weeks. This makes me not want to blog, because I feel bad that I take so much time off! Maybe if I blogged more, it might make me feel like I should run more.

 After my race, I fell into a rut. I think I was disappointed that I didn't do my best at the race, and it got me down.  So down that I didn't run for almost a week. Then I went out a ran/walked a couple of miles and then ended up taking another week off, ran/walked another couple of miles, then took ANOTHER week off! It was pathetic. Now I did go out of town for two weeks in there, but I had absolutely no excuse not to run while gone. I was staying at my parents and they would have gladly watched Sophie. And they did the ONE time I ran. But, I just didn't feel like it the rest of the time. I've been home since last friday night and decided I would start over...again...this week. I have done pretty good so far! :) I ran 3.5 miles on Tuesday, 2 miles Wednesday, and then I walked a mile this morning. The weather looked bad and it was so windy that I didn't want to stay out long for Sophie. But I at least needed to do something, so a mile it was! :) I'm going to try to run/walk at least 6 days a week, with Sunday being my off day since I go to church. I need to make this a habit and I think this is the only way I can do it! I have to make myself do "something" almost everyday! I will TRY to keep blogging about it and let you know how the "habit" is coming along! 

I do keep up with my Facebook page and I try to at least update Twitter with my workouts as well. Follow me on those 2 things to really keep up with me! :)

If you already follow me on those 2 things, then you know that I just won a pair of Vibrams from this awesome page called My Five Fingers! :) I'm trying to decide which one's to get, but it will probably end up being these:

I like the colors, and the laces intrigue me! lol
Plus they are almost completely different than the TrekSports that I already have.

The other option I was thinking of were these:

I think they are cute and they are meant for fitness,  after exercise or traveling.
They look comfy, but I think I want to try out a different pair of running one's instead.
Decisions, decisions!

I'll post a pic of my new shoes when I get them!!!
Until then...


  1. Hi! Just found your blog and I was so happy to see someone else who live Vibram Fivefingers! I too and just getting started running, although I used to do it 25 years ago. I just never envisioned how much harder it is at age 50! God bless you as you work towards fitness and the "new you!"

Park Problem Solved! :)

Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :) Here are my new running buddies! :) They are fun to watch while running by! :)  Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :) I just love it all!  Stopping to take pictures! :) I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :)  As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin ! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have
