Today is officially the first day of the New Year! I decided to go for a treadmill run since it was “feels like -25” out. I didn’t make it far, but I made it far enough. Each time I run I will match it or increase until I’m at 3 miles. Treadmill running doesn’t come easy to me lol!!
As we dive into 2018, I have an announcement that I will be a BibRavePRO for the year. If you haven’t heard of Bibrave, go check them out.
If you hover over my “RACES” tab, you will see a drop down that includes discount codes for races. How convenient!! As races get added, the discounts will be added as well.
So follow me into 2018 as a BibRavePro and as I train and increase my running/training from nothing to something.

Last week I ran twice. I LOVE running, but I have not been doing much of it. I was thinking the other day about it and I think I’ve figured out a possible reason. Besides being LAZY ha! Running is an outlet for me, much like it is for the majority of those who run. The thing is though, I have nothing in my life right now that really causes stress. I haven’t had those urges of “I have to go run right now or I will lose it.” We used to have those moments all the time in my previous job and if I didn’t go run I would’ve blown up. I am so grateful to not feel those moments anymore or come home crying every day, but honestly I do miss running. It’s hard and I’ll be the first to admit that once you are out of it for so long, it is ALWAYS hard to get back in. If you know me, I’ve been trying for like 3 years ha! But what I can say is, I love that it is always there as an option. It’s something I can do anywhere at anytime and that is a blessing that I will never take for granted. I know it will all come back as I’m really debating signing up for a half marathon, but I’m waiting for after January before I register, just to make sure I know where I’ll be in life.
It’s been cold, so I took full advantage of the treadmill.
Another day I ran and finished at 5:30pm and it was already dark, so I just did a short run.
