Peachtree Road Race 2013

The verdict dun dun dun…

For those that do not know the Peachtree Road Race is held every year on July 4th in Atlanta, GA. 60,000 people running a 10K seems crazy stupid doesn’t it? Well after living in Atlanta for the majority of my life I have finally achieved a spot in the lottery system! I am excited to join some friends on most likely a very hot day running in the Peachtree for the first time. I felt very lucky yesterday after receiving this email.

In other news I have 11 days until my first half marathon. My last long run is planned for tomorrow and we will see how my legs hold up. I will report back with distance and time hoping for a good ten miles.

Due to the fact that my goals are lofty as they stand right now I decided I would add another! I am participating in diet bet with Running With The Girls .

4% weight loss in a month and I got 1.5lbs to lose before Monday. Crunch Time all around!

There Is Always A First

First blog post…

Toward the end of 2012 I set new fitness and life goals for myself after a year full of life lessons. We all have those “building years” well I decided to look at my life and decided I needed a new outlook. Maybe it was needing change that I could control? Well I am a type A numbers person that works in finance so that was probably it.

My first half marathon is scheduled for April 6, 2013 and this is the first time I have even attempted even being a runner. http://www.oakbarrelhalf.com/

This journey needs to be documented so I will add life stories, my love of traveling, moderate cooking abilities, and love for life to this blog.

Thank you for taking some time to read and please add some helpful things I need to know!
