My competitive nature has kicked in, and I’ve already signed up for my 2nd Half Marathon. It’s the Team Ortho Monster Dash, happening on October 30, 2010.

I learned a lot preparing for the first race. I know to check the and take the terrain into account in my training. I know I should wear my knee brace. I know that I’m not going to die during the race. 🙂

This week, I’m running twice and cross training twice. I’m also going to give The Biggest Loser Yoga DVD a try. I’m hoping it wil help me tone, but also help me focus on the workout and practice letting go of outside distractors like work worries.

Now it’s time to head outside with my Toddler Tornado. I’m sure to burn a few calories chasing him at the playground.
