A slight change in plans

Well I made an adjustment to my goal list.
Instead of half marathon for 2016.... as of this morning I have signed up for the 2015 Victoria Half Marathon.
I'm excited, nervous, anxious... can't believe I just signed up.

So I'm now really going to write about my journey..
I can't believe I just did this..

A little run

I know I keep forgetting about my blog.  Life happens and I go in spurts!

I have picked up running again, yup after being sick for 3 and a half years, I'm finally on medication that allows me to have a somewhat normal life again, and I'm taking full advantage of it!

About a month ago, I saw myself as lethargic, no energy and just didn't feel like doing anything.
Co-worker suggested I go for a walk with them. Well this walk was more like a run walk for me. She was high speed and I was out of breath, but I did it.. and I felt oddly really good after. SO I kept going. I had set a goal of being able to run the course we did.

TODAY goal was met! I ran the entire 4km. No stopping nothing. AND I feel pumped up about it! I walked back into the office, not out of air or wind, my lungs weren't screaming at me, and my legs felt fine!

Next mini goal is 5km.

I have set goals for myself for Next year....

1. Boomer's Legacy - cycle from Comox Bc to Victoria BC in two days
2. Half Marathon in October of 2016
3. TC 10k In April 2016
4. Triathlon ( longer term goal)
5. Get more into PaddleBoard racing

I'm also helping my best friend train for the Army Run in Sept that is in Ottawa. I wish I could be there with her, but the cost of the flight is just to much for this girl.

So here we go..... I will probably start using the blog more and more to talk about my journey as well the products I will be using to help....

Oh and if your wondering.. is she still making the gloves.. YES I AM.. going to be making new designs and styles.. so stay posted.. as those will be online as well!

Cheers
Gen
