I Can Be Bribed

I know, I know.  You have seen me disappear into the abyss and then make my way back promising to blog more.  And I lied.  I never did.  And like blogging, my training has fallen by the wayside. 

I wish I could offer up a better excuse, but the only one I have is I made other parts of my life a priority instead of running and blogging.  What?!  I spent a lot of time working with my trainer, spinning in lieu of running, studying for the CPA exam and partying it up being social and making new friends.  Lame, right?

This time is different, I swear.   Really, I do!   For one, I have a marathon in 16 weeks.  16 WEEKS.  Holy Crap--how in the heck is already the middle of JULY!!!!?!?!?!?  Summer, where have you gone?!  Also, I have been persuaded into running the Disney Pricness Half in 2012--and some extra incentive was thrown in if I started blogging again (I am not above bribery--in fact I respond very well to it--Katye knows this and used it to get me back on the wagon).

Lets face it.  I know where my strengths and weaknesses are and I need to be held accountable.  I need to report on my training runs, long runs and other races, otherwise, they may not every happen.  Lets just say that I don't envision a SMOOTH Marine Corp Marathon without sufficient training (and, I want to hit 5:15 on the MCM---its going to be WORK and I need to make sure I am doing it so I can be successful.)  And wait until you see my outfit for the MCM.  Seriously, I have it all figured out.  Do you like the "Party Rock Anthem" from LMFAO?  Then you will LOVE my shirt--the whole outfit is REALLY cute!

As a little reward for sticking around, I am going to be hosting a giveaway in a few days. Just an easy peasy, lemon squeezy entry to thank you for occassionally checking this out to see if I have resurfaced or am still alive.  Let me work out the details, but you will be rewarded, my dear readers, for sticking it out with me. 

Additionally, if anyone needs a brand new pair of Brooks Trance 9, size 9 and never worn, please let me know.  I have a pair I am looking to sell (I need a wide size) so please, shoot me an email here and we can work out the details.

Happy running all :)

I'm so glad you're back!
My next marathon is 20 weeks away, and I'm training by myself, so you'll have to keep ME accountable when I get into the high miles. said...

i for one am glad you're back :)
