Training Update

For those of you who don't know, or don't remember, I'm training for my second 1/2 marathon.  I ran one back in April of 2007...turns out I ran that race about 5 weeks pregnant with Isaac.  So needless to say, after that race, I didn't run again until recently.  I started my official training on Jan. 24th and  from then until Feb. 28th I logged 74.85 miles of running!  Lots of people think I am crazy for running in the cold, but it really isn't that bad.  If you have the right attire, it is actually pretty comfortable.  I am training with my friend Michelle, and we do our long runs on the weekends.  There have been several times that we felt like we were hurdle training instead of distance training with all of the snow mounds we had to jump!  Currently the snow is gone, so that makes our runs even easier!  Here is a picture of us before a run...this was on an extremely cold day.  We use the scarfs to breathe through so that our lungs have warm air instead of the bitter cold! 

The race is on April 25!  I'll keep updating my progress every now and then!
