One Month

This little baby was waiting in my inbox yesterday:

One month till race day. The countdown has begun. - - Gmail

What happened? Where did the time go?  How do I only have one month until I run another half marathon?  Yikes.

After reading that email and slightly freaking out, I grabbed a calendar to figure out my remaining “training plan.”  Every week, for the next four weeks, will include:

  • One long run. I ran 8 miles last week, so it will go 9 –10 – 11- 8 – half marathon
  • Two 4 to 5 mile runs
  • Three 3ish mile runs, with at least one including a hill workout.  This race is called The Hospital Hill run.  As in, the hills will send you to the hospital if you don’t prepare for them.  Hehehe.

I would love to be able to say that I will add strength training onto that, but let’s be real here. 


Breakfast was my favorite breakfast glop. 


I know it looks disgusting, but it is so yummy and filling.

For both lunch and dinner I had left over green curry chicken.


I am officially green curry chicken-ed out. 

Dessert was a few dips into the cookie butter jar (10).


I swear I want to die swimming in a tub of that stuff.


I met up with Courtney for a 4.5 mile run.  It felt good to cross the 3 mile mark, however it was extremely humid.  Perfect training for a June race in Kansas City.  WHAT was I thinking?

Thought for the day:

This is long – but very worth the read.

Points Breakdown:

Daily Points (30) + Activity Points (9) – Eating Points (39) = 0


  1. I've never had Cookie Butter, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to stay out of it. Dane and I are going to PA this month and I REALLY want to stop at Trader Joe's in Pittsburgh. I've never been! :)

    Love the thought for the day and did your sister have the baby yet???

  2. If you don't find any there, I will send you some. It isn't fair to go through your life without tasting it! :)

    I love Trader Joe's - obviously. However, I do think that people sometimes talk it up so much that when you go there for the first time don't be too excited. I mean, at the end of the day it is still just a grocery store. :)

    No baby yet. I can't wait! I am sure my sister really can't wait. Poor thing.

  3. I went to TJ's for the 1st time about a month ago. You're right, ppl talk it up so much but it is just a grocery store. I loved the chocolate oat brownie bars tho!! And I allllmost bought cookie butter, but didn't, & now I'm wishing that I did!! Good luck with your training!!
