I realized it’s been almost a year since I’ve updated my Tumblr. Time has flown! Looking through some of my old posts I was definitely more in a ‘racing’ zone at that point. This year has been more laid back. I’ve only ran one half marathon this year - a destination race in San Francisco. I did a few local races in the spring but aside from keeping my normal schedule of gym classes, I took 2012 off. And that’s ok because I was beginning to feel burnt out from all of it. I don’t love running (and still don’t) so training for races is something I don’t really do. I take hard classes at Equinox three to four times a week and that keeps me in decent shape to line up for a 10k or even a half marathon. I love my gym!
Alas, it’s time to start running again. Back in January, I took advantage of the ING Miami Half Marathon Blitz to pay a very low price to register for the 2013 race. And now it’s time to start training! The first step is to start taking advantage of at least one running class per week at Equinox. From there, I need to increase my mileage because while I heard the Miami half is a great race, it’s also humid and warm in January (when isn’t it warm in Miami?).
I’m hoping this race will motivate me to up the ante in 2013. I already have my eye on a couple of other locations for destination races in 2013 - stay tuned!
