Turkey Trot Race!

So at 7:00 am while most of you were snoozing away and letting some woman slave away at making the turkey for you in the wee hours, I was working so frigging hard....

I was waking up. 7:00Am Thanksgiving morning.

I awoke and made my way to to Prospect Park for the 2007 Turkey trot race! My first running race since the age of 12 when I had to do cross country & track in middle school! Anyhow- it was a five mile race- I did it!!! without stopping, or panting- doing my thin- running easy! I didn't win an award or anything, but I won a back pack that has the slogan- "Turkey Trot" on it...

Came back home & cooked up a storm with my buddies & ate & ate & ate then my stomach was bursting so I passed out...

Anyhow. Hurt like hell the next day. But oh so worth it!

Next race: Midnight run NYE 2008!!!!!

Triathletes-in-training bond!!!

So yesterday I got a shirt in the mail from Nautica!! As one of the first 1000 people to register, I got a shirt that says

NYC triathlon 2008!

Go me!

So of course I wore the shirt to the gym. And guess what! I was in spinning class and this boy/man comes up to me and says "nice shirt"! And he had the same exact shirt as me! Turns out he got it in the mail yesterday and decided to wear it to spinning class too!


I've designed this awesome fitness program called Revival 101. More details at another date.

My ankle is healed!!!! I'm not running until the spring. Except for one race a month such as the turkey trot next week!!
I'm back and here to stay.

Inspired by the Marathon!!

The beauty of living in NYC. I just had to step out of my house and walk half a block in order to witness the world's greatest marathon!

The drastic difference between African elite marathoners & others is ridiculously large in the men's category.

My dream is to run this marathon one day.

I'm not training outdoors until the Spring but my running partner & I will be taking boxing classes once a week or so.

Otherwise, I'm trying to hang in there. I can't wait for the turkey trot race on Thanksgiving day!!
