Sunshine and Apple Pie

WOOHOO! So we ran the 6 miles. In 1 hour and 14 minutes :)  Which gives me about a 12:22 mile, gotta do better than that though. I want to be able to take pictures with some of the characters along the Disney Princess Half Marathon Course. I won't say I loved it. It was definitely the hardest run I've had so far. My feet felt like lead the entire time. I'm glad I pushed through it though. Left knee and hip were tender as well. I'm definitely looking into kinesiology tape. 

I'm just not sure whether to go for KT Tape or Kinesio. I will say I like the colors from KT but I have to do a little more research. Luckily Ojciec took a kinesiology class in college and can figure out how to tape my knee best. He says that my patella is slightly tilted, like my brothers. Hey you can't argue when your dad is a physical therapist. Never paid for a single consultation in my life. 

Made a delicious dinner last night for Miguel and myself. Ended the meal with a fabulous homemade apple pie...

Feeling a little under the weather today though. I hope I will be good by tomorrow I'm looking forward to getting back into my sneakers. :)

First Day of Fall

As much as I am a Summer Girl, I cannot deny my love of fall. Leggings and Uggs and hoodies, apple picking, apple cocoa, the leaves changing, Halloween, pumpkin carving, Thanksgiving, the Manchester Road Race, and this happens to be the best time to be on the Connecticut Wine Trail.
                                                    I LOVE FALL

On the running front, I registered last week for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I had to take advantage of the early registration fee. And I finally ran 5+ miles! This is a huge accomplishment. I have never run 5 miles before, and it felt great. I'm excited to try for 6 miles.

This is my running partner....

Did I mention we are supposed to be running, not picking up sticks. But he's such a champ. He will go the 3,4,5 miles with me, the least I can do is let him prance with a stick in his mouth.

Tomorrow.....6 miles!!!

Ran 3.14 miles today and didn't feel like I was going to die. I am so much more pumped than I thought I would be about this. I had taken from Saturday to today off from running because the shin-splints hurt so badly.
I'm also toying with the idea of getting kinesiology tape for my knee. Amazon seems to have a good price on it and they have a couple different colors.

On the Princess Half note:
I plan on running in all pink if I run with other 'princesses' but I think i'll run in blue if I am by myself. Yes I said it...myself. I am not going to let going by solo deter me. I am dead set on running this half marathon even if I have to go alone.

I have never been really successful at the whole blog thing...but I figure since I am trying to do things that I might not be successful at right away now is the best time to try...
I am doing this to track my newest goal for myself...

The Disney Princess Half Marathon

I have never been much of a runner...(I was captain of the cross country team in middle school the biggest claim to fame I have in the running world...sad I know.)

But this is the beginning of a new journey for myself...
