The Good RUN!


SO, So, so happy. 
Not just a good run, a GREAT run. 


Decked out in FALL gear!

Boy did I feel blessed on this run. I spent the first 3 or so miles thinking about what I WANT my marathon in Honolulu to LOOK like. From my feet to my head: I saw my *new* running shoes (above) moving fast, touching the ground lightly and bounding back up. I saw my legs, tan and muscles popping. (tan? Not yet!) I saw my arms moving swift, I saw myself running in sunshine, blue sky over me, people cheering, a smile on my face and a good, fast, even pace ALL the way through. 

It was a wonderful way to start my run, by visualizing where I will be a little over a month from now when I do my  first 26.2 miles. Visualizing is very powerful as is saying affirmations. "I am light, I am quick, I am strong, I am winning!" 

11.48 miles and I don't know how long it took! I am focusing on a consistent stride, good form, and running strong!  

I came home and had an Oskri Sesame Bar, Protein shake and a mini Naan Pizza! It was a WONDERFUL Friday night. 





SUNDAY I am running a long run with the Bolder Group, I don't know how far I will go, between 16-18 for sure!  I am very excited to be able to do this, it is one of the first times that the group training runs have fit with my schedule. 

I am planning on buying a new camera this weekend too, so I will have better pictures again! Woot! I am planning on getting a Cannon Powershot SD1400 IS... any thoughts on it?

My other camera smashed and barely works! The lens doesn't zoom or close and the screen is shattered!! I am just lucky to find this one on sale!

What marathon are you running in Honolulu? My sister and bro in law live over there and will be running in a marathon next month... I think.
