Well, I did it– registered for the Garden Spot Village Half Marathon! A friend from the seminary will be joining me, and her husband and my boyfriend are showing great enthusiasm about being our cheering squad :). April 6th, here we come!
I’ve also been chosen in the lottery to do the Broad Street 10 mile run again this year on May 6th– I had a great time last year, and I’m really looking forward to doing it again!
Despite what I believe to be a little case of tendinitis in my knee, I’m excited to get back into a more committed running routine! I’ll definitely listen to my body during training, though, and I’m taking care to treat my knee as well as I can– that means plenty of water, some ibuprofen, some heat, and getting quality nutrition with lots of good healthy fats, vitamins, calcium, and protein! And also some treats. Let’s be real– good beer is a great thing, and a day without dessert just isn’t right :).
That being said… 3-2-1 RUN!
