Marathon #9: Here We Go!

Yep, that’s right friends I signed up for my next MARATHON!!!! Can you believe I haven’t ran a marathon since 10-10-10 the Chicago Marathon!


Well it’s been an amazing 2.5 year break, but this girl is throwing her running shoes/skirt on and starting to get serious about her training!

On my Friday Fun Run this past week I was chatting with some friends, that just ran the LA marathon and I got the BUG! If you’re a runner, then you know what BUG I am talking about. So I did a bit of research and decided to to the Ojai, Mountains to BEACH Marathon here in Southern California! My job has a camp out there we can stay at and I kind of convinced a couple of other friends to do it with me Winking smile!!

Here is the FUN/CRAZY part it’s in 9 WEEKS!!! It’s on May 26th!! Thank goodness I have been running twice a week and have kept my base miles in. I am going to use the Run Less Run Faster Marathon Plan once again. I love that it is only 3 days a week, that way I can still get in my NROL workouts!!

Speaking of the New Rules of Lifting, I just finished phase 3!!! I am working on the recap to share with you all, I can’t believe I am HALF WAY finished with the PLAN!



Today I sat down and wrote out my training plan until the race, already have my first 18 miler this week! I also prepped all day for the entire week! This weekend (can’t wait to tell you all about it) my friend Ronny made the most amazing Egg and Avocado Salad that I couldn’t wait to add to my lunches! I will be sharing the recipe soon!!!


Time to enjoy the rest of the last minutes of this wonderful Sunday!!

P.S. Be on the look out for my second annual SUMMER SHRED!

What’s your training plan this Spring?

  5. It is great when you enjoy fitness and healthy lifestyle! Healthy nutrition is also vital to provide you enough fuel for active recreation. I discovered safe and effective supplements – Military Grade Nutritionals, which contain a bunch of vitamins and other natural compounds to refill energy supply. These products really work, effect is awesome!

  11. Oh my gosh another marathon – good luck!!! So inspiring. I can’t imagine ever having the drive to run one. I am thinking about signing up for my second half marathon..since I need to train for a 10 mile race anyway. I’m also checking out the She Reads Truth site you recommended! Thanks for taking the time to email me back after my grandfather passed – I really appreciated it!

    Have you picked the winner for the scale yet? I’m hoping to win 🙂

  14. I’m so excited for you! 9 weeks is so soon, but I know you’re going to kick butt. You’re an awesome runner! I’m also excited to hear your thoughts about NROL once you’re done.

  15. Congrats on signing up for your next marathon, you will rock it!! I have to ask, where did you get your fab tupperware? I’m always on the lookout for divided containers to pack my lunch in and I can’t seem to find them anywhere!

  16. Nothing planned yet…not doing anything until the stress fracture heals 🙁
    Received the bad news about 10 days ago.

    Looks like an accelerated plan but hey, you’re fit and you’ve been keeping up the miles. So if anyone can do it, it’ll be you.

  17. Congrats girly! I was wondering when you would be announcing another marathon. 🙂 You’ll be amazing.
    And avocado egg salad…yes please! Sign me up for that recipe!
