keep on truckin'

you may have noticed in that countdown ticker i've got going there to the right that my next half marathon is coming up quick.  like, a little too much so.  damn.  i've started my training, doing several short runs during the week and then a long run over the weekend.  and luckily, even an unexpected vacay didn't get in the way of my routine.

and i gotta say, staying on moonstone beach offered a pretty damn sweet course for me to run on.



i actually managed to cut my pace by a good 30 seconds per mile over here!  because i had no idea what the distance was from one end of the boardwalk to the other, i opted for a distance run on my nike+ app instead of plugging in the mileage i wanted to cover.  and i was pretty stoked to see that in 40 minutes, i managed to go 3.75 miles.  that's pretty darn good for the slowpoke that is me.

and then when i got back to the hotel, i dragged the teen outta bed and we hit the boardwalk for a training walk.  after all, we're going to be doing the equivalent of a marathon and a half for that avon walk in a couple of months.  just for fun, we headed down onto the beach for a portion of our walk via these stairs:


it was fun crunching our way down the beach, stomping over the bajillion little rocks along the way.



we had a good time, joking and giggling our way through about a mile and a half together.  i'm excited for the fun we're bound to have on that walk, dressed in tutus and tiaras.  i can hardly wait.
