Odds & ends

Sorry if you saw an early version of this in Reader. Did not mean to hit Publish just yet...


It's been a quiet week around here. The I'm-shy-on-iron situation kept the early part of the week running-free. But, I got updates, yo.
  1. I had a fantastic Wednesday morning run. I think I'm out of the woods on this whole iron situation. Leg cramping frequency is down. BOOYA. 
  2. The Holiday Booty Buster Challenge starts on Saturday. Since my mileage is so far down and I'm clearly not in training mode, I put myself in the "Building" category. I love the way this challenge is set up this year and I'm excited to play along!
  3. I've also signed up for The Boring Runners' 2nd Annual Freeze Your Thorns Off 5k. I'll be just shy of 7 months pregnant on race day, but, why the heck not? I'm hoping to still be running, but if not, even a big pregnant lady can walk!
  4. This is maybe my favorite part of this list. My friend/neighbor is planning to run another half-marathon and has asked for input on a training schedule. I'm so geeked about this. More than she probably realizes actually. I've made several of my own training plans, some with input and some without. I'm so excited to finally have a chance to help someone else make one of their own! Maybe she'll let me tag along for speed workouts and scream Fartlek intervals at her. Just kidding. Sort of.

I'd love it if you can run along side me and scream intervals at me. I tried doing intervals today. Didn't happen.

I'm excited for the challenge too! I really would like to maintain my current weight and enjoy some holiday food while focusing on rebuilding my base and conditioning.

I am so excited about HBBC but think I may need to change my category, if possible, due to the toe changing my current training status.

Joanna! I've been meaning to let you know I received the AWESOME sign! I seriously love it. I put a pic on the blog today of where I have it hanging. THANKS SO MUCH!

Glad you are feeling better!

Seriously, when I get knocked up, you will be getting lots o' emails from me with pregnant running lady questions.

Glad you feel better.
You have a great attitude, I am sure you will run until the day before you give birth.
