I'm so very excited to be a part of this project. Being a co-captain makes me feel like the 7th grader who tried out for girl's softball and was so bad the coach made me an honorary "co-manager"....true story....lol. I sat on the bleachers keeping score. So sad. But I got a purple hat!! Had a ton of fun too. I hope to help bring a fun, positive attitude to this group. Jim's way of training worked for me, I'm proof it can be done. If I can run a whole marathon after 4.5 months of doing everything he taught me, this group can too! I think I'm going to enjoy seeing people evolve into endurance runners. The friendships that I've found through running is another bonus. We're going to have a great time! If you live in this area, please email me or leave a message, I'll give you all the details!

I ran a slow and easy 2 miles in these bad boys last Wednesday. My coach advised me to go very easy and I'm glad I listened. Even though I felt great and the run was so comfortable, my calfs were KILLING me until Saturday! I can't believe how sore they were! I haven't run in them again yet. I'm waiting for my power bar and coffee to settle and then I'm going for a sweet run. A sweet run is a run where I don't bring my watch, I don't have a plan and I stop and smell the flowers along the way. And look for gators in the canals. Oh, and I go before it's 94 degrees out. Sweet.
My husband is out on his Coastal Cruisers bike ride. They usually do about 35 miles. He loves it. He has to work later, another reason for me to get my run in early. Hey, I have a picture of him on his bike.....
There he is!
