Running Season

It's training season you guys! January 23rd I am running St. Louis' Frostbite Series Half Marathon. I ran it last year in 2:00:32, and I'm hoping to run under 2 hours this year. This is how cold it was last year:

NINJA RUNNER! Just kidding, they don't call it the Frostbite series for nothing...that half marathon was my biggest education in winter running gear. I will be dressed much better this year.

I mention this because I have no one to run with, and the runners out there know that when you have no one to run with, it is much, much easier to just not run at all. Which is not an option, because if this half marathon goes well, then I might, might run a full marathon in May. We'll see how this training goes. I'd love to run a full marathon before I get married. Basically, I feel that by announcing this to you all, I will have to run the race and if I'm going to run the race then I have to train for it...I hope you all don't mind that I'm using your for accountability purposes!

Any other St. Louis ladies out there running any of the Frostbite Series? Do you all have any fitness goals you're reaching for?


  1. I left you a little something on my blog last night! :)

  2. I need a running buddy too (when I start to run regularly) good luck on the marathon challenge!

  3. Oh! How fun. I love the Frostbite Series. I've been running it for years now. Unfortunately, I'm not doing it this year due to our honeymoon and other crap taking up all my time. :) Wish I was b/c I could definitely use a running partner! And 2:00 is my new goal too! Let's plan on doing it together next year!

  4. Good for you! I trained for the half-marathon this past April, but ended up straining my back the weekend the FI and I got engaged and the doctor wouldn't clear me to run!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
