Travel Plans

So we're trying to plan for our Boston trip. My hubby is super excited about spending thousands of dollars (yes I did say thousands) on this. But I'm trying to get the price down so we can all be happy. Besides when I am ever going to get to run Boston again? Probably never or at least not for a long time. Sooooo after researching flights I think we're making it work. If we fly into CT it's way cheaper then flying into Boston, and I have some fam. there who we're hoping to stay with for 2 nights. Then we'd only have to pay for a rental car and a hotel for 1-2 nights. So I'm hoping to lower the cost significantly...but we'll see. I am excited though!
Now my fitness level, or should I say blah level. It's amazing how out of shape you can get by taking a month off. That's all it takes to make me feel gross and out of shape. So today I'm back on the running kick. I got up and ran 3 miles on the treadmill (it's a snow covered wonderland outside). I'm just going to run 3 times a week till I think the last week in Dec. till real training starts. I actually feel a ton better just from that run today. Now the real challenge is all the holiday sweets. :)

Just call me a slacker

So after St. George I worked out at the gym almost every day for a week (to help my legs feel better)...and to compensate for all the food I was eating in Hawaii! Then when I got home, I think I forgot how to run or do much of anything. Or maybe I used the let your body have one day of rest per marathon mile. So yeah my 26 days of rest has come and past and I'm a slacker. I ran for the first time on Sat. and even though it felt great, I still haven't done it again. I think if I'm not training, I cheat doing my fitness runs. Just can't get myself to do it. So call me a slacker in running and blogging for the next few weeks.
Oh on an exciting note: I was accepted to run BOSTON! Yah! I was lucky. 25,000 runners signed up and within 8 hours the registration closed. Luckily I was included in those 25,000! I can't wait!
