    hey christine!!!!

     

     

     

     

     

    welcome to the runner's love show! best of luck to you on your race this weekend! i'm sure you'll do wonders! that's great to have the goal of just finishing for now. you can worry about time and pace as you get more seasoned! when i started, i had no idea about what time i would do based on my trainings. i was running A LOT slower during trainings, but found myself running much faster during races because of the electric environment. you'll find it to be that for you possibly. needless to say, in about a year and a half's time, i've shaved almost 5 minutes off my 5k time, which is awesome!!!!! i hope we can all keep you motivated!!!

    Christine,

     

     

    Well I decided not to run this past weekend, I want to finish healing 100 % before i have to start training for my next marathon in April. I have to tell you I have been completely ok with it, because ive been in pain for almost 2 months now and its almost gone. With that said Ive been going to the gym and weight training to get some excerise and strength back in my upper body.

     

     

    I can say Im ready to run my back off again but i know getting healthy is more important for the long term. I looking to run 11/15 on monday but only a short run. Im still looking forward to the 10k on thanksgiving, but we will see when it gets here.

     

     

    I completely understand you running your the 10 miles before hand, as ive done it both times before my first half and first full. It does calm the nerves to know you have done it and I felt I had nothing to prove that day.

     

     

    I love being in that state of, stay in healthy mode because everything is done and your on your way home.

     

     

    You are Awesome and a Inspiration to all!!!!!!! looking forward to hearing you after race report............

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     





    It's not only about finishing, its about finishing healthy!
