Well, that went way better than expected! I was able to finish my leg without too much trouble. I wasn't fast (14.01 minute miles) but luckily the rest of my team was! The worst part was that I didn't run until 10:30 am which totally through me off my normal race morning routine. I didn't know what or when to eat. I ended up going with the old standby of PB&J which you really can't go wrong with. The Capital City River Run is a great race, very well organized. This was the first year that they had a full marathon and marathon relay and I hope that they keep the events.

Tomorrow starts "Operation Stop Eating Like Crap". I have completely gotten off of my good eating habits. Tomorrow starts the no soda and track all food regime. Should be a good time!

So tomorrow I am running in the Capital City River Run Marathon Team Relay. Due to having walking pneumonia I have not run in over 3 weeks and I cannot remember the last time that I have run over 3 miles. Luckily I am running with some awesome ladies who do not care about the overall time so I will be walking a large portion of my leg. I am telling myself that my only goal is to finish my portion and not get sicker. Of course the weather (60 and rainy) is not making me overly optimistic about that second part but I will do my best!

Back in the saddle!

I figured that starting a blog and starting to work out again go hand in hand, right? No? Oh well.

I did a mile on the treadmill yesterday and didn't die so I think that maybe my walking pneumonia is finally a thing of the past. I am feeling better about taking part in the marathon relay this weekend but not a ton. My team just realized that there is a time limit which is a little bit of a scary thing as two of us will just be walking, hopefully the other ladies will be speedy enough to make up for us!
