Recommitment Day 1

Friday was recommitment day for my Team in Training Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco.  It’s where we have to commit to raising the rest of the funds if we haven’t met our goal yet.

It was a bittersweet day.  I started this adventure with a team mate.  I don’t know if I would have had the guts to sign up without her beside me.   It’s helpful to have a familiar face when going into the unknown.

I think we will be really close to hitting our fundraising goal, but due to some family circumstances my team mate decided she couldn’t recommit at this time.

I’m a little bummed.  I’m sad she won’t be there to finish this with me.

I am excited that my mom has stepped in and is going out there me.  We are planning on staying a couple days extra for some shopping and seeing the sights.  We’ve wanted to do a trip for awhile so this works great.  Thanks Mom!   And I’m excited to keep going.  I’m feeling good with the training and with the fundraising.  I love learning and experiencing what my body can do!

Today’s run was 8 miles.  I was not looking forward to it.   Last night we went to a friends house to celebrate her premiere on network tv!  Obsessed with the Dress on WE TV.

My friend the celebrity!

Me and my friend, the celebrity!

We went out to eat before hand and I had a margarita.  Then had a couple glasses of wine at my friends house.  I was not feeling great getting up this morning.  My stomach doesn’t usually love me when I go out to eat.

But it turned out to be a great run!  Weather was cooler and once I got started, I didn’t have any issues.   I didn’t even get hungry during the run like I usually do.

I don’t usually watch much reality tv aside from the occasional Duck Dynasty.  Like it or love it?

    I’m very proud of you!! It stinks that your friend won’t be able to go with you, but so awesome that you and your mom can experience this together! Keep it up!!
