I’m 37 days away from running in my first marathon. Wow. There are moments that I think about that in sheer amazement, and then there are others when it feels completely natural. One thing is for sure, time is creeping up on me and I plan on enjoying every moment. You only have one first time. Ahem.
As I’m getting closer to the magical date and as my weekly mileage is increasing I’m paying even more attention to what I’m eating. It’s sort of tricky because I’m on a mission to lose those 17 pounds (I’ll have an update on that next week) but also need to make sure I have enough food to fuel my workouts. I’m doing my best to eat as clean as possible so I can knockout both with one punch.
Last night I whipped up one of my favorite dishes. Ginger chicken and vegetable fried rice – made with brown rice of course!
The kids have fall break this week and are home from school (don't ask) so they came with me this morning to the track to squeeze in 3 miles. My daughter ran 1 mile with me then walked another half with our friends. Miles very reluctantly ran/walked/shuffled and complained his way through a ½ mile. He reminds me of me when I was a kid. Gasp!
I’m off to
