I'm Alive...

Fear not friends, I am alive..

Life is kicking my butt right now, and haven't had enough time to sit and blog, or really keep up on all my blogging friends. Please let me know if there's something big going on that I'm missing!

I started some easy running again post-Chicago, and I'm feeling the best I ever have post-marathon. I've spun a few times on the trainer, and also did a 5K last Sunday for good measure. As I crossed the finish line, promptly remember why I stick to marathons and NOT 5Ks - my legs don't work that way.

It's bizarre not having any races on the calendar, and frankly, I don't like it. I love having something to work for, and a goal that I'm reaching to attain when I put on my shoes everyday. I have a lot of races floating around in my head, and have looked at Marathon Guide more than a dozen times over the past week.

Throw me some suggestions friends - what are some of your favorite winter/early spring marathons? I am willing to travel, so hit me up with any awesome races you might have done, or heard of! 

I promise, after this week, I'll be around more often!

Until then, Happy Training!


  1. I've heard good things about the Austin Marathon. And if you want to wait until May the Colfax Marathon in Denver is a good one.

  2. I have heard good things about Virginia Beach Shamrock marathon (not sure if that's its full name). :)

  3. Thanks!!

    Tezrah - is that different from the Colorado Marathon?

    Ali - I've heard good things about that one too!

  4. I have heard that the LA Marathon in California is a great one! I am considering doing it in March, 2012. I know that is pretty far for you but it would be a nice vacation for you :)

  5. I did LA in 2010 - it's a fun race!! One of my most favorite race weekends ever - you should TOTALLY do it!

  6. How far do you want to travel?! I'm doing New Orleans Rock N Roll in March!

  7. I worry about the heat in New Orleans... I'll take a look though!! Thank you!
