Half Marathon, Here We Come!

It must be a good thing that I splurged on a new pair of running shoes recently, because Blake and I are officially signed up for the San Antonio Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in November!  

Not exactly sure what we are getting ourselves into, but I'm looking forward to training to get in shape to make this half happen.  I trained for one in the past and then ended up having to have a follow up knee surgury so I didn't get to run my race.  I'm glad to have Blake by my side to train and hopefully run with.  A few of my girlfriends are also going to be running.  Should be nice to have a few others to train with as well.

Now we just need these 105 degree temps to drop so we can find some cooler weather to run in.  It was still 100 outside when we finnished our run at 8:30pm last night!  (Note to self: don't eat dinner and go run in 100 degree weather)

Any tips or advice on training is more than welcome!  My sister's (she's a seasoned half marathoner) best advice was to strength train as well as get a super cute outfit to run in day of! :) Love her!

Wish me luck!



My friend Ali featured me on her blog, with and i.e..  Hop over and check out the feature today and explore her adorable blog! 

Ali and I met through her husband, Brandon at General Mills while we were living in Arizona.  She would join us for work lunches and happy hours with co-workers and I would always have style crushes on her awesome outfits.  She and Brandon now live in Arkansas with their son Will.  We miss seeing them all the time! 

Enjoy checking out her blog....she's onto something! :)
