You may, or may not, have noticed the races listed in my sidebar. Listed among them is the Santa Barbara Marathon in December which will be my 15th marathon. Woo hoo! Or NOT
…unless I get serious about my running again. Well, getting serious is exactly what I intend to do.
Just before my camping trip, I contacted Coach to let him know that I am ready to get back into training. I listed out my goals and wah-lah. Just like that, he had a training schedule just for me by the time I was back from my internet-free trip.
The funny thing is, that after months of not being able to self-motivate myself, all I have to do is send an email and suddenly I am lacing up. Yes, even when it was over 100 degrees in the shade, I laced up my shoes and did my best at running the hills.

I just started up the fall training cycle last week after cutting back for three months – seeing the plan down on paper is a great motivator. Go get em!
