On Being A Sore Loser…Getting Fit in 2010!

After two days of strength training, a 9 mile tempo run and a fall the other day I am so sore!  I decided my goal for 2010 will be to focus not only on trying to run injury free (and stay vertical:), but to GET FIT!   I am back out there a few days a week since being sidelined for most of 2009 with a foot injury.  I love running.  This year I have resolved to drop a few pounds (6-12) and plan a consistent strength workout of my core (to help keep me fit for racing).  I would also like to add yoga into my routine.  I am going to be a sore loser in 2010!

I have my eyes on The Chicago Marathon this year.  It was sold out in 2008 and I was injured in 2009 so I am hopeful this third attempt will be a charm.  I have some old friends there from my past life in Rome that I need to visit.  I am also considering a summer marathon but have not yet decided on which one to take on.  I am entertaining Vermont or San Francisco depending on where my son gets into law school because yes, we plan our marathons around our lives. 

I look forward to all the new running gadgets and products (need to try the new Code Blue recovery drink) , shoes to consider (still loving my Newtons!), and races to obsess over.  But mostly I am excited just to be out there on the road!   Happy New Year Runners!

Guys! I just love your blog. I’m really inspired by it. I found it when Monica commented on our blog a couple of times, and I’m so glad I did. You guys keep everything in a healthy, positive perspective. Monica- what was your foot injury?
