Decision Made: Re-Committed

I talked it over with IronGreg, Coach K, and training buddies.
I am not even going to attempt this race for time.
(but I REALLY want to b/c a little part of me thinks I can do it)
but instead....
I am going to take my time.
Run with my friends (when I race I have to be alone).
And stop to take pictures with the Princesses.
After all, this race is about the experience and not a predicted finish time.
We will see how my leg feels and think about Richmond Half Marathon in a married lady!

what to do....

In 15 days I am supposed to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon.
But I am not looking forward to this race.
my shin has been killing me softly. It makes me miss workouts. 
My whole point of doing this race was to PR. (um is there any other point, seriously?)
See in 2007 I finished in 2:04:06. I was SO close to breaking two hours.
But I had to hit the port-o-jon at mile 10.
So I have gotten the stomach issues under control.
But now I have this whole leg-that-was-cut-open issue.
I am not sure I can run my usual 9:00 pace.
So do I bother going? Or do I stay home?

Not a Good Start to the Month

February. A new month of training.
In January I lost my goal of 2 lbs and 1% body fat.
This month, I get down to business.
Monday morning I decided not to swim b/c the roads were not in ideal conditions from the snow.
then at work I nded up leaving at I missed my 6:00 ride.
this morning I slept right though my alarm clock and multiple texts.
So first of themonth....and I miss my first three workouts.
Not the best way to start the month.
But I guess I can only get better from here.
