twelve and a half

12.5 days until my first half marathon. I can't believe how quickly time has passed.
I did my big 10 mile run on Saturday-- and honestly? It felt amazing. I probably could of gone 3 more miles!

I am really proud of myself. I was determined to run those 100 miles and decided I'd rather do 10 miles-- and did so in 104minutes! :)
The surprise from my friend didn't hurt for some a boost of inspiration and motivation. I'm may need a present the day before/of the race! (hint hint James/family/friends/blog lovelies)


Can't wait to get to Vegas-- I think our head count is 7 running and 12 and counting coming to Vegas to drink and party while we run our hearts out cheer us on!! :)











And if you're a running or just want to send some positive thoughts/words my way-- I encourage you to give me some words of wisdom/encouragement for my 1st half marathon! :)

oxx & strong mind

I'm realizing more and more everyday how mental running is. If you believe you can achieve, I'm bad about this in regards to running.

Hopefully I can do a 5k soon! Happy running & happy running.
