shoes
asics gt-2140 new pair total mileage  150ish ~ lost track since i haven’t been writing.

since i obviously have been unable to catch up with my life and my writing i’m simply going to start by saying i have been re-establishing a strong base of running. my weekly mileage has averaged somewhere in the mid to upper 20s. but this past week ~ which marked the official start of my MCM training plan ~ i definitely blew it on the mileage goal. but not without reason of sort. i started the week with a long run that technically was for the week prior so i don’t feel right counting that in this week’s mileage. and then this week’s long run was replaced with the kiwanis midnight 10k ~ one of my favorite races. there’s something about running at midnight down candle lined streets that i find so releasing and inspirational. i will say though that it was a rough race this year. 86 degrees with a feels like temp of 98 and 95 percent humidity. even running at midnight we can’t catch a break here in florida. surprisingly i managed to pull 5th in my age group which won me hardware but i wasn’t happy with my time.

so i am now officially in training and truly going to put forth a better effort to maintain my weekly updates again. it was so helpful for disney to use this blog as a way to stay accountable to myself. so here begins another journey of challenge and determination. the goal for MCM is sub 4 hour and the plan is intense. 16 weeks until race day. let the countdown begin.
