First of all....
Wow...I feel like a lot DID NOT happen in January.
I did the 5K on January 1st (check that out HERE) and that was it! I didn't do any other organized races the entire month. Granted there isn't much to chose from here in the Midwest during the Winter.
I am happy to report that my Run Streak is still intact. There were some days that it took everything I had to get on the treadmill for just ONE MILE. It almost feels like it is becoming a job so - while I still hope I can make it all year - I'm proud that I completed a month of running every day.
The weather in Indiana has been spastic! We've had some crappy cold & snowy days and then we've had some fantastic days where running outside has been glorious. I'll be glad when winter is over. It's so much easier to take a late lunch and knock out a run before I get home but that has been very weather dependent this month.
I haven't been the most successful at attending boot camp. 4:00 AM is so darn early in the morning to make it to a 5:15 AM class. This week is the last week before the next class starts on February 20th. I plan on signing up again and hope to be better at attending. I really need to do this for cross training.
Things continue to be up and down with my Mom which is why I'm not doing much traveling for races right now. But I was able to get registered for the Marine Corps Historic Half so my husband and I will be traveling to Virginia in May. I have a few other races that might involve a 3 day weekend but I think we're going to try to take several extra days in Virginia and do some sightseeing and a quick half-day trip to DC.
At least my dog set a new PR. This is our littlest dog Gipper and he loves to try and pick up as many stuffed animals (stuffies) as he can. Up until January 20th, his record had been 5 which we think is pretty impressive. But.....he picked up SIX.
1) Killer Whale,
3) Purple Dinosaur,
5) his brother Wrigley's blue bone that we call the Woobie and
6) Sea Turtle.
I hope that at some point I can get another PR.
February is my birthday month and I've got four organized races that I'm signed up for.
Here's hoping for a good month!
