New Year's Resolution

Back in January I made a few New Year's Resolutions and blogged about it here. The sad thing about looking at my list is that I have only done one thing on it. There were many races I wanted to do but mostly due to injuries I have not done them. I have not run any of the races I wanted to but on the plus side I did do a 10 mile race and I am down to my pre-baby weight of 133.

Last Thursday was my 31st birthday and I also set a lot of the above resolutions to make 30 a great year (I was not looking forward to turning 30 and it was a very sad day). Now I am 31 and still have not accomplished what I wanted to. I still really want to do a marathon but it is also looking like I won't be able to do the one in Vegas, not due to injury but due to finances. My family is coming out to Denver for Thanksgiving and we cannot afford to spend two nights in Denver in a hotel and then for me to go to Vegas the very next weekend. I really need to see my family because it has been awhile since I have seen my sister and she just had a new baby.

I am thinking that I will slow down on the running, but keep running a nice long run on Sunday and come Spring I WILL do a marathon. Also I know I have really slacked off in my blogging but I am gearing up for NaBloPoMo (what does that stand for anyway?) I am going to blog everyday during the month of November. My blog is heavily going to focus on getting everyone else in shape. I am going to have a Couch to 5K plan, 10K plan and a 1/2 marathon plan. I am going to have diet and exercise tips and more. Cheer me on and leave me lots of comments because I have NEVER blogged for 30 days straight!

Bummer about the marathon, but it will be easier to train in the spring.

WTG on the NaBloPoMo! Maybe I'll also participate since I've gotten pretty slack on blogging as well.

I'm new to your blog. I found it by googling 5K running mommies. Anyway, I really like it and think it's sooo awesome that you want to do a marathon!

Congrats on getting back to 133 lbs. That is great! I love your blog, so I'm looking forward to next month when you blog for 30 days straight! I would choose Denver to see a new baby too, of course I live in Las Vegas and can't wait to move in 3 yrs. (I am the military wife that can't wait to move to Colorado)
Just curious if you are getting H1N1 vaccine for your kids, yours are about the age of my kids, for a while I thought I wouldn't get it for mine but now am thinking I will when it becomes available.
If you think turning 30 is shocking, wait till you turn 35! LOL!

my 30th didn't bother me too much, but 35 really got to me and i made a lot of resolutions--looking forward to your tips--i'm trying to run more again, so i need motivation. :)
