This is all I have for you:
Who else is inspired by all those who ran #ingnycm?

It took a week to knock the head cold out but I finally feel well enough to run. Hoping I don’t run into any other obstacles so I can start building my endurance and gain my speed back!
On another note, it was a beautiful afternoon for a run :)

A day late and a dollar short. Here’s my rundown from last week:
Remember my goal from last week? Yup, I wanted to run 4 times. #isuck
Dailymile thinks I’m super. Probably because it hasn’t seen that much action in months.
I don’t know what my problem is. I’m just not feeling the running love right now. Has anyone else experienced this? I thought I would have snapped out of it by now.
This week I would love to get at least 10 total miles in; with a run or two outside in the nice, fall weather we’ve been experiencing.
Just wanted to give a shout out and big congratulations to all that ran the Chicago Marathon yesterday - you guys are all badass! It’s definitely on my running bucket list, I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it.

I’ve lost my motivation for running. Do you know how everyone suggests you sign up for a race to help with your lack of motivation? Well, I signed up for the Salem Lake 7 mile trail run and bailed on it. So much for that theory.
This is how my year started:
I was deep in the throes of marathon training this time last year. And then ran a half in March and a half in April. Without a doubt, after training for 8 straight months for three different races, I had a case of burnout. I thought I only needed a few weeks off, now six months later I feel lazier than ever.
Remember my goal of running 1,000 miles this year. Laughable at this point. I’ve only run 352 miles. That wasn’t a S.M.A.R.T goal for me and obviously wasn’t committed to achieving it. Bottom line, it wasn’t realistic for me. Doable - absolutely but not without the drive and motivation.
The most pathetic three months of running:
Last month, I started a new job with a less than desirable commute (understatement of the year - it sucks). I’ve had a hard time adjusting to my new schedule but I finally feel ready to bring the running back… I think ;)
My planner has a goals section for every week, this week I have a goal to run on Tuesday (check - only 2 miles but you have to start somewhere), Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. My plan is to start with low mileage (think 2 to 3 miles per run) in hopes that I’ll catch the running bug again.
I miss the runner’s high. I miss feeling like an athlete. I miss the extra energy. I miss wearing the gear. I miss feeling healthy. I miss races.
I miss everything about running so why is it so hard to get back out there? Sometimes the hardest part is getting started.
I’ll check back on Sunday to let you know if I met my goal for the week.
