3 - Favorite Sport's to watch NASCAR and Football

4 - I played no sports in High school- I guess I was trying to find myself.

6 - My favorite guitar player is Stevie Ray.

7 - Personal goal- To run at least one marathon/half marathon in a different state a year.

The Rules:
A. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
B. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
C. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. (I'll tag anyone who hasn't been and wants to share a few things about themselves)

May 12- May 18

Well another week that did not involve much running. I woke up sick on Monday stayed in bed all day. Managed to make it to work the rest of the week and then straight home to the comfort of my sheets. Friday morning got up and went to Pilate's had a good day at work and a quiet evening watching a movie with my husband (Rendition). Great movie! Saturday morning got up and went to Luke's and meet up with the beat program and ran 7.45 miles. It was a nice cool morning and considering I had been sick all week the run felt great. Got to see my girls Robin, Judi, Donna, Althea and Leslie. Jon Walk was there said hello to him. Afterward the Nike rep was there he showed some new shoes that will be coming out in July. After the Nike presentation, Bill Dwyer, Robin and I went to Starbucks and talked until 10:45. Wow how time flys.

Woodlands Fit fall program will be starting it a few weeks, I am looking forward to this year a few changes, this is the first year for the fall program. I am going to be am assistant coach working with Bill and Kim. I will be training for my first marathon in San Antonio. I am looking forward to this season.

I will be leaving on Thursday for a long weekend at the lake. When I get back the serious training will need to start. See you on the roads...

Tuesday- 6:45 pm warm up & track work out at Knox 4 x 400 with 200 recovery

Wednesday- Up at 4:30 am Boot camp at 5 am consisting of lots of lungs, squats and sprints

Thursday-off for needed rest

Friday- 6:30 am Pilates

Saturday- Up at 5:15 am to Volunteer at CB&I Tri. this was so much fun. I was on Bill Dwyers team and we had the 5k run leg. We got to act as cones & keep traffic off of the roads and cheer on 1000 participants. It was amazing to be on the volunteer end finally, it made me feel good to see the smiles on the athletes faces when we cheered for them. About 12 of us got run with Miranda who was a huge inspiration to me. She was competing in her very first tri and she had so much spirit. Anyway the 12+/- got to run about the last 1/4 mile with her. It was awesome. Later in the afternoon we to the Woodlands Fit coaches/assistant coach meeting.

Sunday- 6 miles with TWRC from Brooklyn Bagel to Creekside then home for a nap. Later in the evening we had dinner with friends and went to the Rodger Waters show at the Woodlands Pavilion. That was very cool.
