No wonder nobody reads this here blog....I only post 1 time a week. Lame!

Don't think I have stopped fighting the good fight! I am here. Clean Eating...Check! Working Out...Check! Busy Busy...Check! Still Working Towards the 2011 Goals...Check!!

I take pride in the fact that I am a problem solver. I haven't run more than 3 miles since the half. I am just feeling sooo out of shape and SO over the treadmill. However, getting outside to run is kind of hard right now. First, it is DARK out when I wake up(and would prefer to workout) and second, it is dark when I get home. Now I know people run in the dark all the time. It is just there has been 2 attacks on my running trail. Even worse, I know of 6 people being attacked on other running trails within a 20 mile radius. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE RUNNING IN THE DARK! I don't know what to do in this situation. I have pepper spray, but is that enough? Do I join Gold's Gym where they have cardio cinema to ease the treadmill boredom? What do you think? Any advice? The first thing I am going to hear is that I need a running buddy. Uh..yeah! That would rock if I had a buddy that would like to push and be pushed in return, but I don't. I have posted looking for running buddies on facebook, but everyone is flaky. I have been thinking about finding a running club, but I think they meet 1 or 2 times a week and I want to run 4 or 5. Or even buying my own treadmill.

Anyways...your advice is appreciated!

11 In 2011....

Hi Guys and Dolls....

So, I hopped on the scale Monday and about cried. I saw 130.4. I vowed to never be in the 130's again after fighting for a solid 4 or 5 months to get outta them. Although, it was a wake up call that I needed very much. So, thank you scale :) Today, I weighed 129.8 which makes me feel a tad better, but still shows I have A LOT of work to do.

I feel much better today. Saturday's half just kicked my trash. I couldn't walk up and down stairs well at all until today. I ran around for a few minutes at work and I feel great. I need to get more training underway because I have a HUGE goal for 2011.........

11 Half Marathons in 11 months(1 per month)....AND

1 Full Marathon in Las Vegas in December!!

If I complete my goal of 11 half's in 11 months, I have spoken to Love and he says we can budget for a little Vegas getaway for me to run my full marathon! I have given a lot of thought to this goal and I think it is totally doable. I just need to stay focused, committed and enough dinero for new shoes/running gear! I have faith in myself to do this and faith that I can chronical this journey here! 

I am sooo excited for 2011!!!!!

Tell me your goal for 2011!
