1000 Mile Mom

It's not just a goal… it's a lifestyle adjustment!

Day 53: May 20, 2013- 400 miles in the books

Day 53: 10.01 miles logged, 594.88 miles to go- PASSED THE 400 MILE MARK – woo hoo!!!! Four mile 5:45 am run (proud of myself for getting up that early), 2 mile hilly run before teaching Art Smart, and then a 10pm 4 mile flat run after I worked on 6 families’ worth of Pictures In the Park shoots (St. Wendel School and It Takes a Village Canine Rescue fund raisers). Amazing temperature, great breeze, suitable moonlight, and a kick butt final mile yielded a drenched in sweat, but highly enjoyable end of the evening workout!

Day 39: May 6, 2013- Art and Running

Day 39: 7 miles today, Miles to go: 714.46- 2 mile walk after work, and just finished a 5 mile night run. Great temp, fast pace. I couldn’t have asked for a better end to the evening. Busy day with my research paper and working on SMILE Buddy Walk and Trucks & Heroes sponsorship stuff. Also taught SMILE Art Smart after work. We had a great time doing oil pastel drawings, and I love that I get to share my passion for being creative with so many other individuals. Art, like running, for me is a great way to relieve stress and just find peace with myself. So for as stressful as my day was, I feel great now. Hope you’ve had a great day as well!!!

Day 35: May 2, 2013- Wish tonight would have played out differently

Day 35: 4.05 miles today, Miles to go: 740.56. Didn’t get to run to end my evening, so am heading to bed to try and get up to run in the a.m. (operative word being “try”)… we shall see if I have any success. The chillier mornings have thus far been my undoing.
