Finally I have a workout post!

I have been a big time slacker recently, but hopefully this morning will jump start me.

I ran my 5th 5K race.  It wasn't my best time, but it wasn't my worst time.  I'll take it!  Especially since I've been lazy and the course was sooo dang hilly!  Ugh.  But I got up and did it!  That's something.

I'm on my post-race high right now, so I'm super motivated to get back into working out all the time.  I hope this motivation lasts until tomorrow morning!

I would like to actually, you know, train for a race before running it!  It seems like I always pick the few weeks before a race to be lazy.  It makes no sense!  

The next one is August 1st (the day before I turn the big 2-7), and I'm hoping to have a better time by then.

Fresh Air Fund Racers

Here's an opportunity to help a great cause!

The Fresh Air Fund is still looking for runners and sponsors to join our Fresh Air Fund-Racers team for the NYC Half-Marathon on August 16th. This is a great way to participate in NYC's premier summer road race while helping Fresh Air Fund children.

Last summer's NYC Half-Marathon was a huge success and the Fresh Air Fund-Racers raised more than $125,000. We are also still in need of Friendly Town hosts for next month. Host families open their hearts and home to a NYC child who would not otherwise have the opportunity to escape the hot, crowded city streets.
