Miles run in April


Yucky! I actually decreased my pathetic mileage total from March. The really sad part is I ran a short leg in a marathon relay over the weekend and I had a blast. My team actually was the first mixed relay team (girls and boys) in our age group. Out of 54 mixed relay teams we can in 7th overall!

My four person team had a team member drop out the week before the race and my bestie ran a full half-marathon rather than doing a measly 8 mile run. That's my goal. To be in the shape and conditioning needed that I could have a week's notice and run a 1:50 half-marathon. Considering I haven't even come close to running a 1:50 half-marathon, it's safe to say I have a lot of work to do.

The frustrating thing is I know I can run quasi quick. I busted out a 7:36 mile during my race, so I know the speed is in there somewhere. I just really need to focus and start running on a more consistent basis.

I need to sign up for more races because those seem to keep me somewhat honest in my running. I have a ton of excuses, again, for why I didn't run this past month. I really need to pocket those and just head out for more runs.


  1. Great job this weekend with your marathon relay! That sounds like a lot of fun. It also sounds like you have some good goals to work for - I know you can do it, especially since you are speedy and determined. Good luck!
