One Foot in Front of the Other

Today I kicked off my 1st day of my Marathon Training!

I will be doing the Tucson Marathon on December 12 (which is in 18 weeks...which will come fast!)

When I decided to do a marathon, I thought about doing the Phoenix Rock N Roll - which is very popular....but decided upon doing a race in my current city I call "home"!

If you have been reading my sister, Lisa's blog and "Marathon Madness Recaps" -- you will notice here very organized and strategic schedule. Which is one of her favorite things about the training process.

I wish I was like her..........

My schedule is not as organized. It's kind of tough with the career of nursing though - since there's no "order" or "routine" to your schedule. So I just know what "type" of runs I need to do each week, and throw them in where I can!

All I pray for is safe and healthy (and speedy) training!

My 1st run (this morning) -- did not go well.

I blame my vacation this prior weekend, and the heat. :-)

We had a fantastic Anniversary weekend!! Expect a post to come "recapping" the happenings from our little get-away. However, it probably won't happen this week. I have NCLEX Monday-Thursday for 8 hours. And Capstone Day is on Friday!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend, and have a fantastic week! :)
