1. I got in to the Chicago Marathon! Dream race!
It was (and still is) a fiasco to register but I was one of the 35,000 lucky ones that got in! There are still several spots open, but they aren’t re-opening registration until later today. James wasn’t able to get registered yet so hopefully he will get in today!
2. I am officially a Sweat Pink ambassador! I am really excited to connect with all of my fellow ambassadors and favorite bloggers through this great program!
3. I am wanting to focus a lot more on speed training this training cycle. I have a pretty ambitious half-marathon goal time in mind for the St. Jude half marathon at the end of the year and apparently you have to train faster in order to get faster–or something like that.
4. I recently signed up for a yoga series that starts next week and lasts six weeks. It is held Wednesday evenings and is a great introduction into yoga. I took it once before but it was awhile ago, and I like thee idea of sort of having a refresher course in yoga. James is doing it, too. It should be fun! Laura did a great blog post on the benefits of Yoga for runners. Click on the image below to check it out!
Do you practice yoga?
Anyone running Chicago?
