And I’m off!

April 19, 2010

I suppose in order to keep myself honest and motivated, I should start posting results from my runs.  Sigh.

I started off my training by sticking the wee one in the jogging stroller and going out for a 3 mile run around the neighborhood. The route was fairly flat, but it did have some sections where I needed to wait for a walk signal before crossing a busy street.  Here’s the results:

Mmm...squiggly lines...

Distance: 2.96m Average Pace: 12:32

12:32/mile.  Yikes.

My son wasn’t so impressed either.

"Less pictures, more running."

Still, its a start! Its a long way from where I was before my pregnancy, but hopefully I’ll get back there soon.

New Blog!

Its Patriots Day in Boston, which means I now have about 1 year to train for the 115th Boston Marathon! I’ve never done a marathon before, and I’d love for my first one to be in my home city.  I’m not really the sort of person that would normally blog, but I am highly motivated by public shame. It’ll take a few days for me to post much of anything on this blog, so you’ll just have to wait.
