January came and left so quickly! I guess time flies when you are having fun but it also flies when you are busy and juggling a million little things. That is kind of how January went for me. As I mentioned in a previous post, my Grandma and I have been drowning in paperwork from banks and every other place you can think of since my Grandpa passed away. Our list is getting shorter so I am hoping to kind of get things back on track in February.
So what happened in January? I ran my first race of the year and logged about 64 miles for the month. The race was a good thing but not the low miles. I am going to have to work on that in February. I missed a few of my long runs and made the decision to run the Surf City Half Marathon instead of the full and I am kind of glad that I did at this point. I wish I was running the full but it would probably be ugly!
February also includes the Pasadena Rock and Roll Half Marathon on February 17th. I lived in Pasadena for quite some time and attended high school there so it will be nice to run a race in my hometown. I have nothing on the books for March which makes me sad that I will not be running the LA Marathon. I was planning on taking it easy in March to prepare myself for Ragnar in April which is probably a wise decision.
Have you noticed that there is something missing from my Race Schedule? Yes, a full marathon. I am looking around right now for one to add to my list for 2013. I am not sure which one I will pick but I want to add at least one to my schedule so I can get busy training for it.
How was your January?
Do you have a marathon (or two) on the books for 2013?
