falmouth road race
So here were are 6 months into 2011 and I’m revisiting what I’m doing for me this year. This is the longest that I have gone without a fitness goal.Â I got to tell you I’m a feeling a little out of sorts.
This past week I sat down and got clear about what I want to accomplish between now and the end of 2011.
1. Finish the Falmouth Road Race
- I’d like to run this in under 1 hour

A mutual friend invited us and who knew 15 years later I would be sitting here married to Philip and planning to run the Falmouth road race.Â Philip and I are not sentimental l people at all, but every year we have talked about running this race when we hit a milestone in our relationship. On August 9th it will be 15 years that we have been together. Needless to say I am a little SHOCKED at how fast time goes by and he is still the first person that I want to talk to when I get up in the morning and the last person I want to talk to when I go to bed. Enough sentimental stuff… So, we have been training for the road race since mid June, slowly building up our mileage.Â We have 2 weeks to go and today is a milestone run, 5.5 miles.Â In 2000 I ran the Tufts 10K and that was the last time I ran for more than 20 minutes on a treadmill. So today is our first LONG run. Read More »Running Falmouth
