Still Running!

So if you read my general blog then you already know that since completing the Napa Valley Marathon I went on to rejoin TNT and went into training for the Nike Women's Marathon. That marathon took place on Oct. 21, 2007 and was a fantastic run. My time was slower but I had fun running with my buddy Shannon the whole way and overall just enjoyed myself on the run. It was not however, without it's down points mostly the part around lake mercead. However, I made it and am really glad I did that run, and not just because I received a Tiffany's necklace as my finishers medal. But the race was beautiful and overall just really fun; Nike really knows how to put on an event!

Immediately after that marathon I went right back into training with TNT for the Los Angeles marathon which will be on March 2, 2008. I've done the last two seasons as a mentor in which I help the new participants get through their training which has been a lot of fun and really great meeting all these new people. Right now we're about half way through our training and I'm really looking forward to the upcoming run.

Aside from these full marathons I also completed the following half marathons: America's Finest City Half Marathon in San Diego in August, Disneyland Half Marathon in September, Big Sur Half Marathon in November.

Next up is the Surf City Half Marathon in Huntington Beach along the PCH (HWY 1) in Febuarary. After that comes the LA full Marathon at which point I think I'll take a bit of a break from races for a while. At least I say that now, but we'll see.

I'll try to keep this better updated with my runs/progress. For now things are great, and I'm still enjoying my runs, even the long ones!
