I'm a Runner XX

When I travel for a race I never sleep very well and I just don't like it.  I much rather sleep in my own bed the night before.  I still don't sleep well, but it's a little better.

In 9th grade, I was a cheerleader, but I really wanted to be on the track team.  I actually wasn't a bad runner back then.  Not good, but not horrible either.  I also wanted to do the long jump.  Can you imagine?  Anyway, I much rather have been on the track team then be a cheerleader now looking back.  I would definitely tell my 15 year old self to skip cheerleading.

My running hero is more than just a runner, but it is Chrissie Wellington.  Never has someone DOMINATED something so masterfully before.  She's amazing!

Last year, running the San Antonio Marathon was a HUGE disappointment.  I had trained beautifully (so I thought), but the race day weather was not kind and I wound up having a pretty crappy race.

I don't mind running in pretty much any weather.  I can do cold, I can do hot (although I hate it) but I just can not tolerate cold and rain together.  It's probably my only deal breaker weather.

I've run a few miles since the run anyway marathon, but nothing significant really.  I've skipped two weeks of running on the weekend altogether.  I'm not worried about it and I honestly think my body is thanking me.  

Canceling the New York City Marathon was definitely the right thing and should have been done a LOT, LOT sooner.  Ridic!

If I don't run for a day or two I don't care.  haha  Didn't you know I don't love running!

I've never run a marathon and really felt luck it was the best I could do.  There was always something that prevented it from being the perfect run.  I hope one day I'll get my "perfect" marathon.

You know you're a running when you say things like, "just 10 miles".

If you're following along in the Adventures of the Elf on the Shelf:  Lulu (which I'm updating everyday so it will become a full list of all Lulu's adventures... click the link to see ALL the ideas) then here is what she was up the past couple of days.
