Running, working out and eating my way to my next marathon!!

My First Blog Ever!!

on January 23, 2012


My name is Stacey and I am quite new to the entire concept of blogging.  I moved within the last 6 months to the DC area and decided to look online and see if I could find a running group or something I might be interested in and what did I find?  The world of blogging!

So far I have found it to be inspirational and fun to read about so I have decided to start up my own blog.  I will mostly write about my workouts, running and eating experiences and maybe throw in a few extra things from time to time.  I am new at this so it’ll probably be a bit rusty for awhile!

Hopefully, I will meet some new running and workout friends and just have fun with it!

My goals are pretty straightforward.  I have run two half marathons, and PR’d at my second one.  I plan on running a third in April or May (I haven’t picked one out yet) and my goal is to do a sub 2:00 half.  This is really exciting to me as I have thus-far been a pretty slow runner!  So, it means adding in speedwork and mileage.  After that, I want to do my first full marathon in Disney.  The reason I want to do that is because I did my first half there and it was AMAZING!!! My final goal is to loose a little of the “being lazy” weight I put on but mostly just to get back in shape and I am well on the road to that.  I thought a good goal would be to be in FBI shape.  In other words, I want to be in good enough shape that I could pass the FBI PT test.  It is tough!  Take a look here:

So, I am currently on a Jillian Michael 30 day workout plan (day 19), I am just starting up my half marathon training again (my first “long” run yesterday) and am more passively working on a sit-ups and push-ups challenge.

I guess that will be about it for now, as I am pretty sure this is the longest post ever!!!
