running addict.

My will burns stronger than my legs will.
Next race is Monster Dash half marathon on Oct. 31st in Minneapolis! ..and what makes this EXTRA special is my sister is running her first 5k the same day! So, I have six weeks to get myself into PR (personal record) running shape! My weekly mileage is going to peak at 50 then i'll start to taper for the race. Here my training schedule for this week:
Monday: 7 miles
Tuesday: 5 miles
Thursday:5 miles
Friday: 1 mile warm up, 3 mile tempo, 1 mile cool down
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: 5 miles, BIKE

My life wouldn't be nearly as awesome as it is without running. I look forward to my run every single day. It's a time that I can think and dream. One of my favorite things to do is run along the Mississippi river at night with the moon guiding my steps and the stars shining bright. Pure euphoria.

It's so amazing to finally be running again (injury free!). You know who I can thank for that?! Three Rivers Chiropractic.. since I started getting adjustments there I have completely changed my view about my body. I believe that our body is completely capable of healing itself, there's no reason for all the drugs and medicines we put into our system. It's all about WELLNESS! Not only did they heal my numb leg and make me overall a lot healthier.. they also offered me a job there! It's so unbelievably awesome. Things are looking up my friends!
Stay tuned.

September 4th, 2009

Now that I'm done (almost) with my crazy, hectic, insanely busy summer of work, I'll hopefully be able to update this blog more often. But I'm not making any promises. So, What's up lately?
- I got a rad vintage camera from my one of the regulars at work. It's an Agfa Ansco from the 70's (pictured above).. I love it! I also got an even older one from an antique store. They fascinate me, I'm gonna try to find some film for the Agfa and develop some pictures myself. How awesome would that be?!
- I'm moved back to La Crosse and I'm loving it. Relaxing days spend laying by the Mississippi, running on the trails, watching the sunset.. ahh, it's good to be back. But sadly I have to go back home and work one more dreadful weekend.
- I'm learning to play guitar, It's a slow process but I'm loving it.
- I re-pierced my nose yesterday :)

- I'm super excited to get back to my normal running routine. I don't feel myself without a week filled with miles!
- That's about it! School starts Tuesday, I've got my books and i'm readddyy! Life's good but it's about to get better. :)
