March, 2011:

I made my (not so) triumphant return…

I went back to the gym last night, after taking over a week off to let the mess that is my toe heal up. I was not feeling it, but I knew I had to go. My goal for yesterday was just to run.  If I could get there and run, I would be happy.   Save the weights & the bike for another day. I got there and got on the treadmill, hoping to watch the Canucks game while I ran. I usually walk for about 2 minutes to warm up when I start the treadmill, so I flipped through […]

But I’m not sure I actually WANT to run another marathon.

I ran a half marathon on March 20th. I ran my 10th half marathon on March 20th. I ran my fastest half marathon on March 20th.   I fell in love with the half marathon on March 20th. When I finished the Comox Valley Half Marathon on March 20th, I realized that I love that distance. The half marathon is the perfect race for me.  It’s still a distance race, but it is a bearable distance.  It’s still hard, but it’s a good hard.  It’s still an accomplishment. I’m halfway through training for my second marathon.  A marathon that I […]

Wearing Skinny People’s Clothes.

They say that it takes your mind a long time to catch up with your body when you lose a significant amount of weight. I’m not exactly sure who “they” are, but I think “they” are right.   I reached my goal weight in May of 2008, that’s almost 3 years ago, yet sometimes, I still don’t see myself as “skinny”. I can go in to a store and know that I need size X, but when I look at it on the hanger, it still seems too small. The times when I really notice that my brain hasn’t caught […]

Race day re-cap!

So yesterday was the big day. I’ve been thinking about the day I would run my 10th half marathon for quite a while now. I wanted to do it last year, but I ran 6 half marathon’s last year and didn’t quite have the energy left at the end of the year to run a 7th. Besides, I thought there would be something poetic about running my 10th half marathon on the same course as my first.  2 years ago, I didn’t think I would ever cross the finish line of my first half marathon, and here I am now […]
