The Publix GA 1/2 Marathon

It is 3 days after my 2nd 1/2 Marathon and I am still feeling the effects of all of Downtown Atlanta's hills. Sunday was almost perfect. The GOOD: weather, good music on the ipod, great volunteers, Georgia Force Cheerleaders at LIL 5 Points and ended with me getting a PR of 3:27:01 (4 min faster than my first 1/2 Marathon), The BAD: Hill after Hill after Hill, Not making my goal time of 3:17 or faster, Leg cramps from mile 10-12, and finish line confusion (ran out of food for runners so we had to wait 20-30 min for supplies to be restocked) The UGLY(or just plan crazy) The costumes..... From the couple dressed as Scooby Doo and a bottle of mustard, or the guy playing the guitar in only a cowboy hat and underwear.... All in all a good day and I got new BLING so I am happy

Why do I PUSH

I push myself harder everyday. Going hard is the only way to get the results I want, the only way to reach my full potential. If you do the same things you will stay in the same place. In 2008 when I was over 400 lbs I never thought I would be walking a mile, definitely didn't think I would be running a 5k New Years day 2010, by the end of year I had done five 5k's two 10k's one 10 miler a 6k and a Half Marathon. ALL done with no training at all (not a smart move by me) I had found my competitive spirit again . My mind, and heart were geared up for every race but my body wasn't. I felt the aches and pains for days and days.... Like I said, NOT A SMART MOVE. Fast Forward. Two months into 2011 and I am waiting for my calender to read March 20. Amped up for the Publix Ga 1/2 Marathon. This is my 2nd Half and now I am both mentally and physically prepared. I have done two 5k's this year and as of today says I have tagged a total of 79.44 miles since Jan 1, 2011 (two 5k's + 73.24 training miles) So now back to the question..... Why DO I PUSH ? I push myself so that I can be the best me I can be. Friends and Family I push you because I have been there. Having someone in your corner is a wonderful thing. Especially when that person has walked 13.1 miles in your shoes.

Thought of the day

Every second push harder, every minute dig deeper, every hour go further. If you do this every day you will be better.

This week has been a REAL TEST. 3 days stuck in the house due to the snow and ice in Atlanta. With the Ga 1/2 marathon in 2 months I need to be outside running not pulling my hair out watching the walls. Time to get a treadmill

What a difference a year makes. Jan 1 2010 I decided with my fiance to start our year with the Atlanta Track Club and run Resolution Run 2010 5K. maybe we should try the 5k. End results a 51:30 time for me and a renewed competitive spirit I hadn't had since my days of playing football. During the course of 2010 I have logged numorus miles, met tons of new friends and lost some pounds too. Fast forward January 1, 2011 Resolution Run 2011.... My time 42:03 this is going to be a good year.
