Stay Tuned....

New updates coming soon. Life has been a bit hairy the past few weeks, so I haven't had a chance to catch up with the blog.

I've been running and hitting the gym pretty regularly though! And of course, the Gold's Gym Body Transformation Challenge has begun! We are 1 week in and it's been fantastic so far!!

Rochester Runner of the Year (RROY)

The banquet for RROY was last night and my friend Adam and I were in attendance to receive our awards. Adam ranked in the top 10 overall and won his age group, as well as receiving a silver patch for running over 100 miles in road races. I won 2nd place in my age group as well as a bronze patch for running over 50 miles in road races (79.4 to be exact). Alex & I also won some wonderful door prizes. Love the door prizes! Overall it was a great night and I was able to visit with a number of people I've met through various road races and other running events. I am looking forward to running in this years RROY races!

Fantastic Run!

I had a fantastic run at the gym today! It felt awesome!! I did 4.5 miles on the treadmill and then headed for some lower body and ab training. I just need to get to 20 mi per week by the end of the month. Then I will know if I'm ready for the marathon training!

I won't start logging weight loss for a few more weeks. I officially registered for the Body Challenge and scheduled my photo and measurements for 8am on Jan. 17. Yikes!!

Training Begins.....Sort of

Well, it's the start of a new year and a new running schedule! It looks like Derek and I are on for San Diego....although we haven't officially registered yet.

I began running earlier this week and I feel great! My legs were a bit sore, but nothing crazy. I did 2 miles on Tuesday and 1.5 miles yesterday, all solid running, no walk breaks. I know it's baby steps, but I have to start somewhere!

Over the next few weeks I'm focusing on weight loss and building up my mileage. I'll be starting the Body Transformation Challenge at my gym the middle of this month to work on the weight loss part of my goal. More to come.....
