Just want you to know, I'm so domestic. I'm cradling a giant bowl of homemade guacamole in my lap and stuffing covered chip after chip into my grateful mouth. I love food.
Too much.
That's why it's been my goal year after year after year to run a half marathon. I've been pregnant for pretty much the last 3 years, so that's of kind of gotten in the way of things. But if I want to keep eating like I do, I better get running.
I talked to my personal trainer friend and she said she'd give me a 12 week training plan for Beginners. But guess what.
I'm not even a Beginner. I'm like a pre-beginner. I have to start running four miles a day before I can even start the Beginner Training Schedule.
But I'm ready,
because I want to go from this:

To this:

I've been very diligent about doing my pre-workout stretches.
Then I put on my ipod and start to get pumped.
I run, and it feels pretty good. 
I even pump up the speed a few notches. 
I run faster and faster and faster 
and then
I feel like I'm gonna pass out.
My stomach hurts, the room seems to spin, I envision my body flinging off the treadmill, and slamming against the wall behind me.
I start to look like this:
dang, I'm hot.
Then comes my favorite part:
Post workout stretches! 
Do I look lethargic, or what?

I hope I can keep this up.
In the mean time, what are you favorite workout songs? I'm still on a search for the best of the best motivational music. I neeeeeed it.

You are hilarious! When/where are you going to run a 1/2? Wish you were closer so we could run together! Lately, I've liked One Republics new album.

I have been running for a couple months and I am a pre-beginner. I got a plan and everything from Hal Higdon's website. He has a plan for everyone on every level. I kind of had to up my conditioning plan though because I wasn't being pushed just quite hard enough.
Love Lockdown from Kanye west is a great one that always gets me pumped and it's just fun to run to also Firework from Katy Perry.
