    about my race...
    How do I say I was disappointed, when I finished? Or that it was harder than I thought when I trained for 18+ weeks? Yet, it was amazing and invigorating, painful and emotional!  All of those things and more.
    They say you learn about yourself when doing a marathon, your strengths, your weaknesses and so much more, and now that I've run it, it makes sense.
    Chelsea, me, Jill...

    It was amazing, overwhelming, empowering and defeating! Yep, all of those things and more! The range of emotions you go through when running a marathon, I never thought possible!
    So much to share about the weekend, and after having a few days to reflect and not feeling as sore, I think I have a little different perspective of the accomplishment of running 26.2
    It started during the training, when...

    I've been taking photography this semester, I really wanted to learn more about my camera. So far I can say I've learned a lot and have been taking most of my pictures on manual, although all that I learned with aperture priority can confuse me. Trying to retrain my brain...

    Challenge has been my word of the year and I had no idea how many challenges I would face, now leading to one of the biggest challenges, running 26.2 miles in Chicago.
    The idea began in 2010 as we enjoyed dinner with Jill, Jennifer, our spouses, and Chelsea, Ben, Zach.  Talking of races past and races future brought us to the challenge of Chicago.
    We booked the hotel in JANUARY and signed up...

    Training for a marathon...
    There is a part of me that is tired of it, tired of not getting to choose when I run, instead looking at a piece of paper to see that I NEED to run a certain distance. Also worried about the taper down period and learning to trust the program.  All this and realizing Chicago is just over 2 weeks away!
    Although there is still a lingering high from the Air Force half marathon,...

    Saturday I ran my 5th half marathon race and I guess for me, five is the charm... although I do have to say I've done my best training before this race, especially since I've been training for the Chicago Full Marathon.

    Jill, Chelsea, Jennifer and myself
    This run... was amazing! Not just because of my PR of 2:11:25, although I'm pretty stoked about that.  I followed along with a pace group which...

    my poor neglected blog. It seems life has gotten in the way of me staying updated here. I'm hoping my fall schedule gives me more time for the things I love. Reading, blogging and of course running. With training full speed for the marathon it seems to take quite a bit of my time in between everything else that needs to get done daily.
     
    Then you have those days with girlfriends, a little...

    I did it! I ran 20 miles! The thought of it had worried me for quite sometime when I seen those numbers on Hals schedule, but somehow with all the training all the weeks before, that twenty wasn't as tough as the number made me think it was going to be.
    Since starting back to school, I knew I'd have to change my long run Sundays to another day and so this past Monday was my scheduled 20 mile run....

    My cousin's wedding shower was this past weekend and we decided to put together a mini album with the help of all the guests.
    I picked up some chalk board signs on etsy and we had each guest write some advice or wisdom for them.  I then printed all the pictures and filled a flip photo album that was completed for Stephanie to take home at the end of the party.
    Everyone had a blast coming up with...
