What's Up

I think I've finally found the courage for...


Do I see a half marathon in my future? YES! My hubby and I were asked by our very good friends to complete this along with them, I have recruited my running buddy, Christine and we're ready to go! Hmmm, now where do we begin? Ha! Remember I've NEVER done this before...yikes! Do I even have a clue as to what I'm in for??!




I finally bought a new pair of running shoes, Mizuno Wave Rider and so far, so good! I had an amazing experience with our local running store, Runner's Link! They took their time and we didn't stop until we found the perfect shoe for me...oh and we totally had a great time talking, exercise! Is it just me, or is running THE best feeling in the world? I have been working out for over 10 years and although I enjoyed teaching aerobics, going to the gym and other workout programs...running gives me a feeling like NO other! I have lost almost 6 lbs. and although I should not focus on weight, my clothes fit better and I feel as though my body is taking a different shape :)

Oh yes, what a lovely picture of me telling the world, "I run like a girl" and I'm darn proud of it!!! That's right, BondiBand review is coming soon and they are one of the Independence 5K sponsors...send me an email to sign up NOW, rissarose80@yahoo.com

Yay for your first half marathon! I just finished my first one. Just follow a training plan and you will do great! I used Hal Higdon's and just modified it slightly. Good Luck with training and the race!

Congrats on picking your first half. I still haven't worked up the courage to do one yet, but I'm thinking it's going to need to happen soon. :-)

Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
