Some Good Training!

Hi everyone! It has been a while since I have posted and I don't have any exciting news to report, really. I am training for the Seattle Half Marathon to take place Nov. 29. Any one else doing this one? I know there are a few Marathon Mommies out in this neck of the woods.

I did this race last year and it has gone down as a PW. My "Personal Worst". So this year I am out for blood, I want revenge, REDEMPTION. So I am hitting my training hard and really focusing on hill work and improving my time. I was coming off of a random neck injury last year AND the hills were like suicide, an unsuccessful suicide. So this time it is hills, tempos, intervals...and miles! If anyone else is doing Seattle let me know! I would love to meet up with you or even head out on a few long runs together!

On another note, a blogging buddy of mine is giving away some sweet Pearl Izumi shorts! She has had 200 posts and is celebrating by giving away free shorts! Score! So head over to Tall Mom on the Run (click this whole sentence for the link!) for your chance to win! and be sure to tell her that Amanda from 5 Miles 2 Empty (formerly thebrandonfamily) sent you!!!! You wont be disappointed! I promise, her blog is pretty sweet and she always gives things away!

Happy running everyone!!
Amanda

Amanda - sorry for the comments error on my page! I think (hope) it is fixed!

And mostly thanks for direct over to Mel - I love her site too. Having so many people interested and involved in running at different levels is both motivational and helpful.
