So much happening. First off, welcome to 2015! It’s a new year & that means less than 4 months to the Boston Marathon.
As a gift to myself for getting in, I bought a new Garmin! The Forerunner 220 & I love it already. Excited to go on runs just so I can use it.
Training for Boston is officially under way. That said, this training will be an adventure due to traveling for work. So I also get to figure out how to properly get workouts in when I’m on the road. First test will be next week at CES (Vegas) and then PAX South (San Antonio) 2 weeks later.
A new year also means new goals. Since I’m in the SF area now, I’ve a few I want to tackle. In no particular order:
- Find a running group
- Blog more
- Explore! Lake Tahoe (skiing) and Yosemite (hiking) are just hours away.
- Survive Boston training (coworker was a sprinter in college and previously a personal trainer, so she’s been giving tips)
- Sign up for a couple races in the 5K to half marathon range (I did a 10K last month with some coworkers)
As a side note, the crazily cold weather (it was 28 when I woke up this morning! What?!) has made my adjustment to the up in mileage a little harder than I anticipated. The muscles feel solid, but the lungs haven’t liked the icy air quite as much.
I expect 2015 to be quite the adventure!
