I raced the Madison Mini Marathon (and experienced my first race delay at the start line) and the Peapod Half Madness 13.1 the following week.
Registration opened up for the Couch to 5K Ladies Edition training group that I will be coaching this fall through the local rec program ... it filled up in two hours ... and there are several people on the waiting list. I'm so happy that so many women want to do such good things for THEMSELVES! I can't wait to meet these twelve ladies in two weeks and start them on their journey. I also have four clients that I've been coaching over the summer for 5ks this fall, and have another that I will be helping her increase her pace in the half marathon.
We just had a photo shoot for the local running club (HERE) that I'm starting up. I'm hoping to make it easier for other runners to connect in the area. I'm also going to host a "playdate run" once a week so stay-at-home moms can connect and get their children involved in their exercise. Little Dude and I and that Little Red Car will be having some fun out on the trails.
running in the process.
And, still smilin' about it! :)
