There's an 8 mile run in a few weeks that has sparked my interest. It goes through a hilly Balboa Park and parts of the San Diego Zoo. My running has really tanked lately, so I wonder if a change of scenery would get my psyche reved up again, therefore making my runs more effective. Plus, the 8 mile run would fit in with half marathon training. That flu I had a while back really took the wind out of my sail, and I'm having a tough time getting back to things as they were. I'm back to feeling physically great but the running is another story. I know this "down-shift" is a part of the running thing. All runs can't be fabulous. Writers have "writer's block." I have "runner's block."
Anne has bestowed upon me the "Rockin' Girl Blogger" distinction. Cool! I guess I'm supposed to bestow the honor to someone else who hasn't had this distinction yet... I'm not sure if these three ladies have been honored yet, but I pick Evelyne - for the hard work she's doing and making fantastic progress with eating and working out per Body For Life. My next choice is Chantal - for training for her first half marathon, sticking with it, working hard and getting in those tough long miles. Last, but not least is Katie, who has a blog I can leave open when my 4 year old grandson (who is learning how to read) is standing behind me trying to read the letters on the computer screen, and Katie started working out with a trainer and is kicking some major bootie and seeing the much sought after progress. There are other girl bloggers who are very noteworthy but many of them have been recognized. There are also a few guys who have great blogs but I don't know if there's a "Rockin Guy's Blogger" award out there.
