Only 5 weeks left. I’m still running in the Minneapolis Marathon, and I’ve only got 5 weeks left to train. I’m excited but apprehensive still, but I’m much more on the excited side at this point. I want be able to say I finished something like this. Even if it’s just a Half Marathon it’s still the biggest athletic thing I’ve done since playing Women’s Football.

Wonder what I’m doing to train? We’ll here’s the schedule I’m following thanks to Fitness Magazine. You can tell it’s mine by all the creases 🙂
Plus I’m still watching my diet and trying to get as much rest as I can. My toddler alarm clock isn’t helping with that goal, but he’s adorably bossy, so what’s a mom to do?

I’m down another 3 pounds. I realized that I haven’t been this weight since I was in 8th grade. WOW.

As part of the Mamavation Group focus this session we are “Greening” our campaign, so inline with that goal I’m going to focus on staying outside with my runs and spending less time in the gym on the equipment. My hope is to cancel our family membership and to save the money instead. Read all about the Mamavation Campaign and about our new GREEN initiative here.

I’ve found some good outdoor cross training ideas that I’ll share next week. Hopefully that little cliffhanger will keep you coming back for more. Or you can catch one of my comedy shows coming up and I’ll give you some pointers after the show.


  1. I'm in awe of anyone who takes on the challenge of a marathon, whole or half. I'd have to get in shape for a good year before I tried to tackle it. However, I have no desire to run that far, under an circumstance.
