Food keeps me going

I am tired.

Tired of training.

Tired of getting up early.

Tired of being tired.

To tell the truth, I can NOT wait for this half-marathon to be over with.

Yes. I love running far. I love how good I feel after my runs. I love all the attention I get (self-centered…but true).

But, I don’t think that now is the best time to be training for it. I truly do NOT have time to run right now.

So…my guess is that I am going to keep my half-marathon training to spring and summer.

This is not to say that I will stop running long distances after my race…I jsut won’t feel as much pressure to get up early and run far distances. I need my sleep. Every day, I pray that I can just stay healthy for 3 more weeks. I am a healthy person. iIhave a strong immune system and don’t get sick that much…but I need my sleep!!!


Without food, I would need to be locked up or something… I am a foodie person!! 🙂 I am lucky to be blessed with a very fast metabolism cause I eat alot! 🙂 Although, I am learning self-control! 🙂 My favorite foods are peanut butter, trail mix, and almonds, and chocolate (of course). Seriously, you can find me any day writing a post on here with a little ceramic bowl of trail mix to munch on! 🙂 It’s so good!! That was random…but very true!

  3. Hey I know I already commented but I just want to let you know that you are doing a truly amazing thing running this half-marathon and you will be so glad you did it.

  4. I think we may have been separated at birth: running AND food. My running pal and I talk about food the ENTIRE time we run. Then again, I live in New Orleans, and those of us who live here pretty much talk about food all the time, anyway.

    Thanks for stopping my blog. I just subscribed to yours and hope you’ll do the same!
