Back To It

When was the last time i ran a road race? Oh my, don't even ask! This Friday (2.14.14) it will have been FOUR Years! My dear friend Erin and I ran the Austin half marathon together and totally rocked it. You can read more here>>>



So, when pw and i started planning our goals for the new year, among them were to train for and run a road race. Since we're going to tackle this goal together, we decided a 10k would be a fun distance to run and give us enough time to train and get in a vacation early in 2014. we're all signed up to run the Black Mountain Greenway Challenge 10k. The goal is to raise awareness and support for the Greenway and all proceeds from the race will be donated to fund projects for the Black Mountain Greenway Commission. That's pretty awesome, right?

Add to it that it begins and ends at Pisgah Brewery and supports an active, sustainable lifestyle- we were both sold immediately! Plus we're staying at a darling cabin in Asheville, can bring our dog, and love spending time outdoors. Win, win, win!


Now that we're all signed up, i'm excited to have identified a training plan that will work with my lifestyle, and is aligned to my wellness goals. More on my 2014 Goals soon-- getting brave about those this week and look forward to sharing soon. Louisville friends who want to join for a run, call me!

10k Novice Training Plan from Hal Higdon  (I modified the days of the week to align with my schedule, and added some specific information, including my Tu/Th yoga classes. Note: Odin's going to be joining for runs again, soon. Especially for the 2 and 3 mile options. He's the best pacer ever!)
