Tuesday Newsday Is BACK!

sedona marathon event logoI’m brining back Tuesday Newsday because………

(drum roll please)……………..

I have begun marathon training again!!!!!!

That’s right! I have officially picked another marathon and picked a training program and have officially begun training. I have been running for the last few months, but just to maintain my fitness level. I’ve done a few small races here and there.

As you can see, and may have heard me mention, I have picked the Sedona Marathon as my next one! It looks like a beautiful but really challenging event. More to come on that!

women's book of running logoAs far as training goes, I have picked a program from the Woman’s Book of Running actually. The reason is mostly to do with the way it progressed and that is was a 16 week program instead of 18. I really loved Hal Higdon’s program that I used last time, but I wanted something in between his beginner and intermediate. The one I found in the women’s running book was just right. Call me Goldilocks if you will.

So, training began this week with a 4 mile run Monday!

A little bit of an update on the rest of life….

I’ve been a little missing in action due to a lot of things: work stuff and well, mostly because of dealing with a break up. Sad day in Denver; but yes, my relationship has indeed come to an end. Yes, I am very, very bummed about it. Blogging in general has been kinda hard considering I had waited a great deal of time to “announce” I was in a relationship in the first place and I have many memories of him helping me edit my posts.  And…that’s about all I will tell you about that.

So, I’ve been focusing on my family, friends and career. Really just keeping myself as distracted as possible.

camp missfitsCarrier:

-My duties at Camp MissFits are ever-expanding! We will be adding Private and Semi-Private Training to our bootcamps and I’m going to be the trainer! So that’s really exciting.

-I will/am still keeping my own business because I have had a lot of interest in people who are way out of range from where Camp MissFits is held; so that’s still in process.

-I actually will no longer be getting certified in cycling at this point. I have dissolved my professional “relationship” with the gym that I would be teaching cycling at and where I would have been “renting” for personal training.  With my loyalties to the MissFits, my ever-changing schedule, the cycling cert class being cancelled and a rescheduled a handful of times, and my business still developing, that “relationship” wasn’t ideal. But that’s ok for a few reasons. 1. I can train out of people’s houses or at parks, etc. and 2. that gym was also way down south, away from all of my interested people so I can look for other gyms closer and with more equipment.

-In the brief time that I was trying to get certified in cycling, I actually really enjoyed it. So I still might keep that in mind as something to do in the future. But, the next cert I will get will be the RRCA running coach cert….as soon as I can afford to register for the class and the plane ticket to get me there.

Family:

-I got to spend a lot of time with my out-of-town family this past week as they were all in town for……my Mother’s Wedding! Yay! Yes, my Mother got married this most recent weekend and I gained 3 new (step)siblings. Although, that’s mostly a joke because were all over 20 years old (almost) and our parents have been dating for 10+ years, so it’s pretty much the same between us. It’s still funny to think about.

"new" siblings, kinda..

-There was three days straight of wedding related things that ended with the beautiful ceremony on Saturday at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO.  Everything went wonderfully and smoothly and I delivered my speech nervously.

-Over the course of the three days, I got to see old family friends and spend time with my Grandparents, my Aunts and Uncles and my 10 year twin cousins! I forgot how much energy 10 year olds have but we got to have a sleep over every night in the living room! But man was I exhausted after the weekend!

Friends:

Although I’ve lost a few friendships over the time here and there, I have a little more free time to rekindle old friendships and spend time with people I haven’t seen for a while. It’s been great!

My best friend and I...we've known each other since we were 3 years old! And she did the wedding parties' hair!

So that’s a bit of a run down on what’s been going on. I can’t wait to keep you all posted with training updates and let me know if you know any cute, single, running guys! 😉 Just kidding. (But not really).
