Last night was exciting for two reasons. First of all, I think we found where we are going to stay in Australia. We are trying to decide if we want to spend the entire trip in Sydney or if we want to venture other areas.

I do think that Australia was sending me some kind of secret message:

The second exciting reason… I signed up for another marathon!


I will be running the Wineglass Marathon on October 6. I am so very excited. This marathon has been on my wish list since moving to New York. I have heard many great things about it. It’s going to be quite awesome.

(I really wanted to sign up for this one too but C wasn’t convinced.)

This morning on my run I realized that I am always coming back and reporting that it was an “easy” four or five miles. What does that do for me? It’s great that I am getting in the miles but at some point I need to push myself. So that I did on this morning’s five miler.

I came home to reunite with another old friend.

Oh, how I’ve missed you. I tend to get really lazy about cross-training when I’m marathon training. No excuses for it because it is SO important… but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day to squeeze it all in. Anyways, like I said earlier this week, this summer is all about getting stronger so cross-training will be a huge part of my workouts.

Too bad my arms are too weak to even attempt kettlebell swings right now.


How do you keep pushing yourself when you aren’t training for something?

Any races on your wish list?

Favorite arm workout? I love kettlebell swings. They are so hard but the results are amazing!
