Half Marathon Update

This week I started the 8 week conditioning program I mentioned here. I hasn't been tough at all. But, let's be honest, if running 5 seconds a minute for 18 minutes is hard then I have no business training for a half marathon. Did that sound snarky? I didn't mean for it to sound snarky. I'm just keeping it real. Do the kids still say that, "keeping it real"? I have no idea what's cool anymore. I think that's obvious. Anyway, I've gotten off on a tangent so I'll get back to business.

I've been surprised how much I've enjoyed getting back into running. (Can I call what I'm doing running?) I've just been running around my neighborhood which I like because I still haven't gotten comfortable leaving Bourke. I've discovered everyone in my neighbordhood (except me) has children. Either that or they all have weird obsessions with small plastic cars and tricycles. I don't know which is worse.

I tried to snap a few pics of myself pre-run. I wanted to look cute and sassy. It didn't work out that way. The pics were too horrible not to share. By the way, you'll never see me post run. I tend to sweat. A lot. You don't need to see that.

Trying to look cute, not being successful

Making sure the dogs aren't killing each other because that's what it sounded like

Why? I have no idea
