Well, I now have a fancy Garmin watch (which I LOVE!) and some new kicks, so what else could I do this morning but go for a great run out on the beach! And, I use the term great in that in the grand scheme of my training for the half-marathon it was a SUPER short run today, only had to be three miles. I, however, apparently am not quite as smart as my new Garmin watch and got confused about where I was and ran more like 3.5 miles. Again, nothing strenuous, just a nice little jog. So far Julie – 1 Training – 0. Why do I doubt that I will be that glib in a few weeks? Haha.
Well, I am getting excited about the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in a few weeks as I have several friends who are planning on running it as well, so the weekend will be fun. Also, I have lined up the training runs prior to the Half, so as of today, I am still excited. Also, there is always the added benefit that you are burning more calories than normal, so hello my long lost food friends! haha. Well, I am off to cheer WVU on with my Uncle, parents and cousin!
