Hello, is anybody out there?! I hope so, because it would be so deflating to know that I am speaking to thin air!
This blogging thing is a challenge due to the fact that I am lost when it comes to technology, but I have a sixteen year old tutor, so all is well! I am up and running now! Literally!
Four weeks ago my husband and I started training for our first half-marathon. Yes, I am a little late blogging about it! We are currently running 4 miles on our long run and running a total of 4 days a week, two of those are group runs with Fleet Feet Sports.
I started running this year in January, before that I could not run for 30 seconds! Since January I have run four 5k races and one 8k where I experienced my first injury! I now know what an IT band is and where my hip flexor is located!
My goal (and my husband’s) is to run the St. Jude Half-Marathon in Memphis in memory of my Mom and in the spirit of a pilgrimage ” praying with my feet”. You see, I am Catholic and we believe in praying and offering things up, redemptive suffering etc.! I could explain it, but it would mean typing a lot of words, so instead I will post some links on the topic (eventually, as soon as the sixteen year old can help me!).
I guess this is long enough for a first post and I promise I will include pictures, because when I read blogs I like to see pictures, so I figure you do too! By the way my header picture is the trail that we run and the photo credit goes to my sixteen year old son/tutor!
