Gettin' Revved...

So after my last post about feeling better, I ended up with an ear infection. It just seems like it's never ending. The worst of it seems to be over now (knock, knock on wood). The kids are on the mend and though my hearing is still not back to 100%, I am not in pain anymore. I even managed to get out for a run last night....woo-hoo! I ran a 3 miler in 25:15. My lungs held up okay, but I could tell that I've been sick :) I just needed to get back out there though and start getting back into my pre-holiday season routine. My half marathon is in 12 weeks and I know it will go quickly. My training schedule is 10 weeks long and I am getting so excited to get into it. There's something about having a goal that just revs me up! I even stocked up on sweet potatoes and salad stuff at the grocery store yesterday (for the perfect lunch, in my opinion).
Hope everyone is getting revved to start the Skinny Mini Challenge. I set up my new email for this blog. Feel free to email me directly if you have a question or comment you don't want viewed publicly. For those of you participating in the challenge, remember we're starting Jan 1st so I will need you to email me the following info no later than Jan 4th: Name, Age, & Starting Weight. The email is.... the_skinnyjeans@yahoo.com
Have a great Christmas everyone! And remember.... CONTROL, CONTROL, YOU MUST LEARN CONTROL =)

You are a rock star.....25 minutes....nice work, especially on the heels of an illness. I did a somewhat slow 3.1 miler today and it felt good. But, reading your post...makes me want to increase my pace next time out. I really really want to reach a 30 minute 3 mile time asap. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yes, glad you are feeling better. I'm still debating about the challenge. I do think it's a great idea.

Hope your Holiday Season has been great!
