Can I just start by asking who knew Friday was National Peanut Butter Day???? Well, to me…..everyday is national peanut butter day :)! I have tried several other nut butters but I still just love good old fashioned peanut butter! So here is how I celebrated….
Just the right kind of food to fuel my packing!
The lack of blog posts is due to this….this week is our big move!!! Moving is just such a project! Yesterday was truck loading day at our house….crazy!!! Here is an idea of what yesterday looked like for me…
SO much stuff! But the truck is loaded and we are Iowans for one more night and then we head to Maryland! We are going to take our time and stop in IL and Ohio to see some friends.As excited as I am….leaving people you have spent the last 5 years with can be a little emotional.
My running this week has not been even close to where it should be for someone running a marathon in 12 weeks….but sometimes that just happens. I am getting in WAY more strength training then I usually do though (by moving boxes all over) ! I have a few friends who are just starting to run/walk and some who are starting to increase their miles and go for a 1/2 and some thinking about a full which is so exciting!!!!! I am planning some running posts with just tons of tips for runners at all levels!
I got a new book that I can’t wait to read on our road trip!!!!! And the other book is one I got at Christmas time and have been really enjoying lately!
I am coming up with a 12 week training plan for the marathon which will be different than what I have done in the past because I have a shorter time frame to work with. My base is good though…so we’ll see!!!!
And just because I liked it….a beautiful Iowa sunset!!!
Who is moving or has moving recently?
To where and from where?
Are you training for a race?…what distance?
