Uh Oh.

This just happened. 

I blame Megan. It’s all her fault for asking me about upcoming Fall races. When I told her I didn’t have any, I could feel her judging me through Twitter. Okay, not really. But, the guilt set in. There was no reason I couldn’t squeeze one more in.. the strength training and cross training that I have been doing has made me a stronger runner and I have been running with strong partners as well.

On a race a couple of weeks ago, Shannon and I were discussing running another half. Magic City (formerly known as Ruben Studdard) fit into both Alabama and Tennessee’s football schedule.

So the training craze has started. My hip flexor is upset about things, and I was worried about essentially doubling my mileage overnight, but my body remembers what to do. ;) I’ve also had a little bit of numbness in the arch of my foot. It’s not all the time, and it doesn’t hurt, just a tad worrisome since I’ve never had a problem with it.

So, I guess I better get started on those long runs…

  1. Ha ha! I’m glad you blame me for the registration. Its one I’m happy to take. Tweet judging? Definitely not. But I’m glad you signed up for something and are training for it. I knew you had a fall half up your sleeves somewhere. And since my sister goes to Alabama law school and her bf is in Birmingham I was seriously considering it when you were resting about it. But that’s the weekend I’m doing the women’s half down here. Can’t wait to see your training! I saw your du be digit from yesterday! Awesome job.

  2. I think it’s awesome! And, I think that you’re going to rock it. So there. I support Meghan on this one, ha! :)
