Boo - FREAKING - Yah!

Run LSR on park trail (2:03:44)

HR monitor: Total calories burned (1141 cal)

Great run today. I was seriously dreading it and I put it off as long as I could (I didn't start running until noon) but the weather was PERFECT. Sunny, about 58-60 degrees, beautiful! A really great thing came out of today's run. I am beginning to believe I can really do this. By "this" I mean train for the marathon by myself. I didn't have anyone waiting for me at the beginning of the trail waiting to start, I didn't have anyone that would know if I turned around and did fewer miles, and I did it, I did all of it. Boo -Freakin' -yah! (the picture is representative all the duck butts I saw today on the trail. I love duck butts. They make me happy)

Weigh In
I went to JC today and my weigh in was exactly the same as last week. Frustrating, considering how conscientious I was this week. However, my weigh in for last week was BAN on my home scale, not the f%$#ing Jenny Craig scale, which I am convinced HATES me. Also considering the sheer mass of Christmas cookies I consumed over the break, it is not that bad.

RBR...you do runs for the t-shirts as well! Love that! I just wanted to let you know I set up my running blog with my two friends who are going to do the nashville Half Marathon with me. Check it out. PlanetYnnepRunning.blogspot.

Good for you running the 11 miles by yourself! That's hard as hell to do without someone else besides you!
