I get by with a little help from my friends....

Does everyone remember the question I asked last week? In case you don't remember, or gasp didn't read it (shame shame) I will enlighten. I ended my post last week asking for tips and suggestions for running clothes and/or shoes etc that I would need for colder weather running in the upcoming weeks. I got a little bit of feedback and all of it was good. But I was especially fond of one friends email response and found it incredibly helpful. I decided that instead of reiterating what she said I am just going to copy her email into this post. I am leaving her anonymous because well honestly I think she would enjoy being the mysterious contributor, but also because I may use her in the future and I think if she finds a way into more postings it would be more interesting to keep you guessing at who she is:)
 (I did nothing to edit this email except to remove anything that would lead to my friends identity which was actually only a sentence at the end. Please enjoy her tips they are great!)

Why am I really doing this?

Recently I met with a client and in talking with her and listening to some of her struggles with exercise I could really empathize. Exercise is hard to fit into the day. It is hard to make it a part of the day. We exercise for the purpose of fitting into a swimsuit, or to run in a race, to blow off steam, or because our health is so bad that the doctor said we HAD to start doing something. This train of thought got me thinking even deeper....

Jessica had a bad horrible, no good, dirty rotten day

I feel the need to write about my day today, Partly because when I am having a bad day putting it on paper seems to help, but also I feel this is an opportunity to educate about the importance of getting a good nights rest and finding balance.

Running the streets of Carmel

I know that a few of you have been waiting for this post (or at least one person has, you know who you are...). I do apologize for the delay, as many of you may have known, my husband and I recently spent an amazing 6 days on the California coast. To be specific, Carmel, Pebble Beach and San Fransisco. I also know that many people thought my husband and I would flake on our marathon training while on this vacation. In fact we got several interesting looks as we packed our shoes and running clothes. More than one person questioned our sanity with this one. So for those that had faith I thank you :) and for those that did not, well everyone knows I am always happy to prove someone wrong;).

Out of shape!? Who me?!? No way.....

Well folks, my first week of training is done. One down, only twenty-five to go! This week was also a huge revelation for me and a validation for why this endeavor is the right path for me. But before I get into that I wanted to give a quick summary of my training schedule for those that are unaware.

Its official, training has started

Yesterday morning I woke with mixed feelings, Training starts! I will admit that there was a real excitement and elation that I felt, however that was followed by a shadow of fear. Sure the beginning days of training are easy, walking 20 minutes?! SIMPLE, then a walk run, not too hard, its only 20-25 minutes of it. But then things switch to pure hell, I mean pure running:).....What have I gotten myself into??
