Road to Big Sur: Week One

It's hard to believe, but my first week of training for the Big Sur Marathon is complete. Thanks to a relaxed vacation schedule, I was able to ramp up my mileage (from the paltry amount I'd been doing) without taxing my daily routine. Now, I just have to keep it up!

We went to Michigan for Christmas, and I did my first week of training in the balmy 33-45 degree weather there. It rained a bit, but not while I was running thankfully. No snow, which I much prefer to rain.

I started the week off with 11 miles on Sunday, did a 5 miler with Neil, a 6 miler alone, a 3 miler with Neil on Christmas, and capped the week off with another 11 miles the day after Christmas.

Everything went well, but my hip is still not too keen on me running more than 3 miles, two days in a row. I'll have to work on that.

I'm excited to be on the road to Big Sur!!

Proud member of 2016 #nuunbassador team!

Just in time for my Big Sur Marathon training which begins Monday, I received the official notification that I am a Nuunbassador for 2016! This will be my second year helping spread the #nuunlove, helping others find a tasty hydration beverage without added sugar. I am a big fan of Nuun, and honestly can't manage marathon training without it!
