It’s been over a year! Wow!
Let’s see what I have been able to accomplish in that time:
March - Became a RRCA Certified Running Coach
April - Became a Team Orgeon Certified Long Distance Running Coach
April - Athens Half Marathon - Athens, OH
May - Flying Pig (Half) Marathon - Cincinnati, OH
June - Hatfield McCoy (Half) Marathon - South Wilimington, KY
October - Columbus (Half) Marathon - Columbus, OH
I haven’t done too much in 2014 yet. :)
In the meantime I have been volunteering my time as Membership Director for the non-profit running club I run with (150 members). In addition to that, I have also become one of their coaches. This, plus actual paid work has kept me pretty busy.
But don’t stop there! The husband and I joined a gym and over the last three months have successfully lost 6% of our body fat so far. I am hoping that I’ll be in better shape in a few months than I was when I ran Disney.
Inspired by one of my fellow runners, I am currently studying to become a NASM Certified Persal Trainer. This is more for personal knowledge gain than anything. The ideal end result for me would be to take what I learn and apply it towards running.
My goal for this year is to run a few more half marathons and then prepare for the full in the fall, but going into it already being in really good shape. I am really looking forward to training for and running my 4th full marathon.
