Answer - my blog!
An update of sorts of stuff going on in my life...
My Dad had surgery to remove the upper lobe of his right lung on the 20th - he is recovering well and the great news that we had out of this was they did a biopsy from the lymph nodes and they are cancer free! He is such a strong person and seeing him in pain was very humbling. If he can get through this - I can walk a marathon!
I did manage to weigh in within goal for the month of September (9/24) - it was a struggle as I did let myself get higher than I planned on yet again this month. Something else that suffers when life gets crazy is going to Weight Watchers meetings. I need those to stay on track!
Marathon training has had it's ups and downs as well. I have had some foot pain and after trying to do 16 miles and only getting to 12 I have tried re-lacing my shoes differently so that they don't hit the sore spot on the top of my foot. It has seemed to help for now, but the real test will be on Sunday (Oct 3rd) when I will complete my 7th Half-Marathon. I still plan on trying to pace my friend, but I also have a back up just in case I can't maintain the pace I need to help her meet her time goal. This race will be different for me since it will be the first half marathon that I will pretty much 100% walk and I won't be out there to better my personal best. I plan on going out and having fun and enjoy the ride! I even have fairy wings to go with my purple tutu for this one!!
