I used to have a blog

So I used to have a blog. I used to post. I used to be all into this online journal bit.

Yea…. about that….

I think I was supposed to blog once a day in Feb, that clearly didn’t happen. I was also supposed to be losing weight. That hasn’t happened either. I’ve had a lot going on.

My willpower is shot to shit. Seriously, I need a swift kick in the ass. I’ve been able to run outside which is a plus (since, you know, we live in the tundra and it’s muddy and icy all the freaking time!)

Pretty much

Pretty much

 

I survived though.

Speaking of surviving —

Race The Runways 2014

Race The Runways 2014

M, J, and I ran the Race The Runways 2014 at Brunswick Air Field. It wasn’t terrible. Well, it wasn’t awful considering I had virtually no training. I managed to eek out a PR by a minute LOL my original Half time was 3:00:24. Race The Runways, I came in at 2:59:17. That’s a huge deal f0r me.

Next up — the Mariner Mother’s Day 5K through town and after that, the Baltimore Women’s Classic.

While we’re talking about Baltimore, I got orders! We’re heading back to Baltimore for 4 yrs. Early transfer out of this joint. Not by choice but I can’t complain because with this transfer comes the news that I’m making E6. 9 years in the making and I cannot wait! I’m not overly excited about going back to Baltimore because E and I wanted to travel some more but the money will make up for the lack of movement.

Going back to Baltimore also brings the opportunity for more races. Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K, the Charles Street 12 Miler, the Baltimore Running Festival Half Marathon, and the inaugural running of the Across The Bay 10K. Out of 20,000 runners, I was lucky enough to be quick enough to register because it sold out. Of those 6.2 miles, 4.35 miles of them will be across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, 181 feet in the air. I’m so excited!!

I’m going to attempt to keep up with this a little more, now that we’re moving but I can’t make any promises…

  1. I give you a lot of credit. Out of our 7 half marathons baltimore was the hardest and most disorganized. I will never do that race again. Good luck with your move and upcoming racing. The marine corps marathon series does a half in Fredericksburg, Va in May if you’re interested. It’s a tough course but not nearly as bad as Baltimore.

  2. I’m totally considering the MCM10K! I think it would be a great experience and I really would love to see the streets of DC in that way
