I'm alive! :)

I've been so unresponsive over the past couple of weeks. So sorry! **I've been reading all of your blogs, just need to get better about commenting** Sorry!

Truth is . . . work is keeping me slammed. I spent a week in Louisville - in a training classroom enviroment from 8AM-6:30PM. Then, I've been working non stop since I've gotten home. Basically, I was trained in Louisville to then train our Tampa office!

Training in Tampa is over tomorrow. The acquisition is complete and the integration is almost done.

I've still been running. :)

I'm actually racing a 5K on Saturday. We'll just have to see how that goes. I'm partly excited as it's the same course as my 5K PR from November (it's just a little hotter outside) and I'm partly terrified because you never know how long 20 minutes feel.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to break 20. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to PR. But, I'll honestly be happy with anything sub 21. I'd be lying if I said I was happy with anything 21:xx +

I don't know what kind of shape I'm in. I've been hitting up the track every week and racing half marathons like crazy!! I'm in great shape to run 7:15-7:22 pace for 13.1 miles ... let's see how that translates over to 3.1 miles.

If nothing else, Saturday will be an indicator of my current gauge of speed! :) The goal is to break 20:00 by the end of Spring/Summer (5K season in FL).

Leave me some love!! I miss all of my comments!



  1. Dont you hate it when work gets in the way of things?? :) Good luck in your 5K this weekend, I bet you will bust out a new PR! Excited to hear how you do!

  2. that is a great goal! good luck this weekend - you can do it!

  3. good luck! i feel you on work related stuff getting in the way. i keep reading blogs too but get frustrated that i don't have the time to do more than that.

  4. She's alive!! She's really alive!! You can nail that 5k PR you are seeking for sure and I hope you can do it before June because as you already know that's when we start melting down here. I'm currently working myself back from injury (plantar issues - left foot)but am considering a June 5k to chase a new PR and end my season on a good note. So glad to see you are alive!! :-]

  5. YAY for living!! :)
    Good luck with the 5K, go break a sub 20!!

  6. I know you will do great! Your training should translate well because you have been doing track workouts...Let me know how it goes! I haven't raced in so long! Technically since December, but I wasn't really in any shape to race then so its really more like October so I have to experience races through you : ) Hope work calms down for you!

  7. I'm glad you have been keeping up with the running in spite of all the work chaos! Good luck with the 5K! Can't wait to read about a PR!
