Where have I been? Not posting. Laundry. Dishes. Work. Kid activities. An anniversary trip stuck in there. Just not enough time in the day to do all the things I need to do, much less want to do! But, I find I am much more dedicated to my running routine if I am blogging about it. Please accept my apologies for being MIA the past month.
How did this happen? My sister that lives in Chicago and I were talking at Thanksgiving. We thought it might be fun to do. Then sign up time came at the beginning of February. I got an email saying it was more than half full and texted her about it. She texted me back saying she had just signed up. My Cute Husband and I were on our anniversary trip while all of this was happening. Long story short, I signed up for the Chicago Marathon on my phone sitting in the parking lot of a Verizon Wireless store. After all, as my Cute Husband pointed out, she probably would have been mad at me if she signed up and then I didn't.
It will be fun to do it with someone. Especially since she lives there. And has done it once - about 10 years ago.
Now for the hard part. To find a training plan. I know I am usually a fly by the seat of my pants type girl, but for something this big, I feel like I need a plan. Any recommendations from anyone? What has worked for you?
