"Run this Town"

So it's been a WEEK since my last post. I guess I'm a slacker. Honestly, I've been really busy. For the last week I have felt that I keep trying to catch up on everything...sleep, laundry, work, cleaning, blogging and almost everything else. I really don't like that feeling. I have to be on top of thing's and if I'm not I feel like I'm losing control.

Since I've been gone ( No I'm not trying to sing Kelly Clarkson..LOL) I have been running and P90X-ing. On Sunday my sister and I ran 8 miles. She did very well and we registered her that night for the half marathon on 03/07/2010. I know she is really nervous but it's going to be so much fun that she won't have time to focus on her nervousness during the half marathon.

We went to a near by park that I love. It has a few hills and it goes on forever. On Sunday we have a 9 mile run planned. I'm hoping that it also goes really good that way she goes into the half with a lot of confidence.

Tonight I ran with Craig. We ran 3 miles on a trail that is behind our place.

We ran on the dirt part but on the other side there is a paved trail.

Today's Eat:

I also had a breakfast burrito,tangerine, almonds and we made pizza for dinner.

Hump Day is almost over....Tomorrow I only work until 11am. wooohoo! I am feeling really exhausted this week. I'm ready for the weekend.

Question: Do you ever feel like you don't have enough time to do everything you need to do?

  1. Hi Betty,

    I've been reading your blog and you are very inspirational! I had a few questions for you, if you don't mind me asking... How did you go from being unhealthy to a long distance runner? Did you start off running or did you use other methods to get in shape first? I noticed you eat lots of healthy foods. How did you transition into that lifestyle? I'm trying to get in shape to, but it is hard work. I was just curious as to what your diet/exercise plan was when you got started. By the way, you look great and really are inspiring. Good luck on your race!

  2. I constantly feel like i don't have enough time - especially to devote time to running. Not getting home until around 6 from work, then making dinner, spending time with the pup, chores, social engagements - it's hard to balance!!

  3. Ha, Betty, if you're a slacker, what does that make me? :)

    Thanks so much for the award nomination!
