Reactivated!

Well, I was going to post yesterday, but I was having major internet malfunctions, so now I’m just going to post a bunch of random stuff including a recap of my first run back in business!

1) I went running on Monday, which was my first run in almost 2 weeks since my health issues.  I woke up kind of expecting wanting to be back to 100% normal … wasn’t the case... duh! I still had some chest pain… but not as bad, and my breathing is getting easier… just not as fast as I had hoped.

The run itself had me feeling tired and really out of shape.  I ran for about 27 minutes… I dont know how far I went, but I wore my new shoes and used my new fuel belt handheld… you can see it in some of the pictures I took before the run I took them just because I felt like it…  (the outfit is probably my race day get up, what do you think?)

**I tried to flex… I dont have much muscle lol ;)  and yes, i love nike, and yes…i am a complete goofball, thanks for asking ;)  glad we cleared that up…

2)  I also ordered GU last week for my half marathon and got it in the mail today!  I was sent some GU last month to try out in exchange for a review so look for that in the near future… I have one more flavor to try.

3)  I got my bib # and corral # in my email this week… wait for it…..

BIB #2203
CORRAL #2

I’m actually kind of nervous… my race is in 4 days!!  Judging from my run yesterday, and how sore my quads are today… I don’t think I’ll be running it straight through like I had planned… I may have to run/walk it.  But, I’m super excited I get to go still! :) 

4) Also, I thought of a bunch of questions regarding my first half marathon… but now I kind of forget them.  It could be in part due to the 4 hours of TV I have watched because of season premiere night of my favorite shows including NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles (2 new episodes!), and Glee… woohoo! What are your favorite shows to indulge in?

5) Since I forgot all my questions… feel free to still give me some advice or fun little tidbits or your favorite things about racing… stuff like that!  If I remember my questions, I’ll post them later!  But, for now, off to bed I go!

  4. Hi Z -
    So glad you posted I was hoping you would so that I could wish you ALL the luck in the world for your first half which is the same day as my first. I, too, will be thinking of you. It's both exciting and scary isn't it?!? You're going to do great. I have only trained to run-walk-run so I know you'll enjoy mixing it up :)

    Outfit - FAB!

  5. The outfit is a 16 out of 10. Not only is it hot…but I feel faster when you’re wearing it.
    …4 days and counting and although you’re a bit nervous…you seem fresh and ready. You’ll do great I’m sure.

    And the GU people sent you all that? What’s your favourite flavour of GU? Have you tried that blueberry pomegranate Roctane yet? How the heck do you sample that many GU’s anyway? I go through that many in a year.

  10. Agree with Q on this one - you are so hot in that outfit you're cool! Plus you look slippery fast like a runaway train! [I have no idea what I am talking about!]

  11. Super outfit! Just go and enjoy it. Relax and don’t start too fast. If you feel like walking, walk, nothing wrong with that. You’ll do great! I love Gu…Chocolate and Orange are my favorites. I’m a big NCIS fan and also like Criminal Minds and Numb3rs. Good luck with the race!

  14. That outfit is a race day must! I love it!
    And I also love Mark Harmon. My mom and I watch NCIS all the time for the delicious eye candy that is my future husband, Mark!
    And Glee - LOVE it!!! Finished last night's run with just 2 minutes to spare before it started!

  18. I love the outfit! Shows off them awesome legs!

    If I had your legs and Emz's abs...well, I'd look a heck of a lot better than I do now. hahaha

    Here's some advice that I heard given on my shuttle to the start line at the CMM: "Start out fast, pick it up in the middle, and finish strong."

    Best. Advice. EVER! HA!
