Week #11: Half Marathon Prep and other Crazy Stuff

I know that most of you know that we are headed out of Utah in the next weeks for our first PCS Army move to Oklahoma.  We are super excited, but I can tell you, getting ready to move out of state is a HUGE job!  I have so much stuff to do in these next few days that I don't know if I am going to be able to sleep!

Despite my busy schedule, I have made time for my half marathon training.  Last Thursday, my husband and I ran over 12 miles!  No stopping.... but I tell you that last mile was a KILLER!  I thought my legs might just fall off and the cool down was even more painful.  But I did it.  And now I know that I will be ready for the half THIS SATURDAY!  I can't believe it is already here!  I have never worked so hard in my life to prep for this... my goal?  To make it in under 3 hours.  I think I can do it!  Wish me luck!!!

Update by Ariana

This week we traveled 500 miles for a total of 6,451 miles! We traveled out of Idaho and into Nevada and California, bringing our state total to 46! Only 2 more states to go...Wahoo! It's awesome to see so many of you reaching your goal miles and running right past them. If you're a little behind, don't give up. Try to go for a mile walk each night after dinner in addition to your normal workout routine, or try to go an extra half-mile during a few workouts a week. Those miles will add up. You can do it!
