Fitness

Being fit is super important to me. I love all things fitness related. Its a good way to get frustration out or to clear your head in a sticky situation. Anyway exercise is great!

Favorite exercise? Running. Hands.Down.

Why do I love it? Its just so relaxing. You can jam out to your favorite tunes and block the world out. I use my time to speak with God. I generally speak with him in thought, and it makes my runs more pleasant. You can read all about my fitness story here, in a special post.

So far I’ve done races, favorite is The Savannah Mile. My time was 9:34. I finished in 5th place out of 23 women in my age group. I have timed myself in fake races my PB for a 5K is 29:21. In December 2011, I took on my first 10K and hoped to finish in under a hour…well that didn’t happen thanks to my injured knee. I finished with 1:17:18. To say I was disappointed is a HUGE understatement, but I did it and finished. Looking back I’m so glad I did it because it gave me a chance to see where I am in my running journey and where I was with my injury.

I’m took on my FIRST HALF-MARATHON in 2012 and I’ve been hooked every since! The 13.1 Atlanta Half-Marathon was my first time 😉

My training program changes yearly, for 2015 I’m doing Hansons Marathon Method.
