Thursday Finds

I'm back in the game. Last night I ran four miles around town. I actually safety pinned my rent check in an envelope and ran it over to our realtor's office. I constantly was looking down at my shoe to make sure it was still there. It was a nice run but I did cough a lot, so I am going to do another four miler again tonight and hope that I am still able to get my mileage up there and get better asap.

This weekend I was talked into doing a little local 10k with my friend, Billy, in Seal Beach. Is anyone else out there doing it?! I actually am going to make it my long run and run to the starting line, race and then put in another mile and then run home. Should be fun to get some *hopefully* quicker miles in the middle. I am also going to try out my new arm warmers and sports bra I got from Zensah. I will have an in depth review coming up soon! I was going to bandit the race, but Billy told me about a friend who couldn't race because of some prior commitments and he is going to give me his and his wives bibs. Thank you SO much Mike and Kristen. I can't even believe my luck. I'll try to do you guys proud. I am excited too, because it's more 'blog friends' who live close by to me, and we've ran a lot of the same races. Kristen kicks serious butt and Mike got bit by the racing bug too!

So about my giveaway, I totally forgot to mention that I will announce the winner on April 9, the day before I leave for Hawaii! Make sure you enter on my last post, because it's a pretty sick deal. I know all you come around on Thursdays because they are the best days of all my wonderful posts. Who likes reading about some idiot who dropped their key during a race, or perhaps a chance to win $$100 to, you're right this week has been super boring! :)

You are going to have so much fun runing the 10k. I am also very jealous that you are heading to Hawaii. My favorite island is Maui.

What a cute blog! You inspire me!

I'm going to run my first 1/2 marathon in October and could use all the help I can get to cross that finish line alive.

What keeps you motivated? How would you recommend I train for the 1/2 marathon? And, whats a good pair of running shoes?
