Monthly Update

Apparently a monthly update is all I can handle these days.

1.  My trip to the Galapagos was AMAZING!  Truly like no other place on Earth!  Wow!  Definitely need to post pictures soon.

2.  Ran the Palm Beaches Marathon Festival 1/2 Marathon last weekend and added on 3 miles, for a grand total of 16 miles, as part of my Disney Marathon training.  Recap to come.

3.   Marathon training... so it is now officially 30 days until the big 26.2 at WDW.  
Am I prepared?  
Enough to make it to the finish line.  
Is that what I was hoping for?  
No, I would have liked to put a little more effort into the training, but all the travel just got in the way.  
I have kept up with running, but no cross training at all.  Let me tell you that running on cruise ships is not easy.  It is usually done on a treadmill, but imagine that treadmill being on top of a weeble wobble thing.  Awesome.
Long run tomorrow is 18 miles, which will be done here in Miami, before I board another cruse ship for a week's long vacation.  Can't wait for next week's 10 mile run onboard :)
Overall, I am very excited for Marathon weekend, but I am not super impressed with all the super long runs that have been eating up my weekends.... specifically my sleep-in late time.  I am excited to go back to halfs when this thing is over.  I want to run more hills and work on my speed at that distance.

4.  I am participating in this lady's holiday card exchange and my cards for Team Rudolph will be going out this weekend!  I am proud of myself for staying on top of this task.

Hopefully I will get around to posting again in December!
How's everyone holiday season been going so far?


  1. Mine our going out this weekend too! I can't wait to see the pics of your trip! good luck on the marathon, give it all you've got!

  2. I need to get to work on my cards for that same exchange!

    I cannot believe Marathon weekend is so soon. I haven't even figured out my 5K outfit yet, and that is usually the easiest part of preparation for me. Oops!

  3. I just bought my cards for the exchange as well!

    I want to see Galapagos pictures!!!!
