Killed the assigned 6.44K (4 Miles) in just over an hour and change. I forgot my running headphones, and unfortunately my stupidly expensive HeartBeats by Lady GaGa headphones refused to stay in. I have tried all the different ear bud sizes, but none of them seem to fit. It breaks my heart that I shelled out so much money, and they just don't want to stay in when I workout. Wound up unplugging my iPhone and listening to the music through the phone speaker.

Today they announced the race weekend for the 2011 Nike Women's Marathon: October 16, 2011. I am going to go for Little Blue Box #02, and I am hoping that (at least) one of my girl friends will run it with me! I had such a great time in San Francisco, so I cannot wait to do it all over again. I will be glued to their FB page and Nike+ until they announce the registration dates.
I have only started to focus on training for Disney, but I now I am thinking ahead to next October?! Is this normal? I certainly hope so. I have been perusing other half-marathons and road races for the upcoming spring, but everything seems to be outside of the Empire State until May. I missed the entry deadline for the NYC 1/2, primarily because I was concerned about running a second half-marathon a month after the Princess 1/2. Technically, the NYC 1/2 would fall within my recovery period and since I am still a fledgling runner, I do not want to do anything that would jeopardize my health (and the ability to wear high heels at my gal pal's wedding in April).
Currently, my goal is two halves in a year (NWM & Princess), until I am a more confident runner. To boost my courage, I have signed up for a couple of 5Ks in between the bigger races. The ones I elect to run with friends and family are going to be for fun and those I chose to run alone shall be about split times, pacing, and limit pushing, and goal breaking.
