Updates, Life, and Everyting Between

I haven't written in a long time but I am still going strong. For a few weeks there I did my P90X + running schedule, but I have kind of slacked on that due to overall tiredness and a new diet. I have been using MyFitnessPal for about 2 weeks and have lost 10 pounds. I felt myself getting a belly and had to do something about it! I would like to lose another 10 or so, then build onto that.

Last night was one of my best runs to date. I did a hilly 10K with my Camelbak and was able to keep a sub-9 minute pace. For me, this is awesome! I am pretty excited about it and hope that I can meet my goal of 42 minutes on the Peachtree Road Race (no Camelbak + VFF KSO + balls to the wall). This pace is 2 of my fastest 5K races back-to-back.

I found out that in a few weeks I will be visiting my girlfriend in Costa Rica. I am very excited about that and hope to see/run at some new places.

I have started tracking my runs on RunningAhead since they don't make my runs shorter like RunKeeper. Click the link on the right to go to my profile.

I am trying to get the running community of Dahlonega together and collaborate with each other. So far it is going well! It is just a group on Facebook. We post when we are going to run, where, and pace. We are keeping it small and keeping the strangers out.

Other than that I am just concentrating on staying strong. After the Peachtree Road Race I plan on focusing on long slow distances for the Duncan Ridge 50K, which hopefully doesn't spank me too hard. :)
