Knee injury update and upcoming races

Happy New Year!
Woke up this morning to 3 degrees. This is just crazy! You'll never hear me complain about the heat in the summer, but you will hear me complain about the cold weather, all winter long. Every morning when I check the weather on my phone, I also check the weather in the Bahamas, California and Florida. It just gives me something to dream about. One day I will live somewhere warm, where it never gets cold!!

  On Monday I told you about injuring my knee. Well, I am happy to say, it is all better! I haven't ran all week just because I wanted to make sure I didn't hurt it worse by running too soon. But I will run 5 miles today on the treadmill, 14 tomorrow and then 7 on Sunday. I'm pretty sure all of those will be on the treadmill!

 I have signed up for 5 races so far for this year. Let me know if you're running any of these!

Run the Bluegrass half marathon, Lexington, KY. March 29

Carmel Marathon, Carmel, IN. April 12.

Indiana Trail 100 ultra marathon, Albion, IN.  April 26-27. (Eeeek!!!)



Noblesville Mini Marathon
, Noblesville, IN. May 24



Air Force marathon
Wright-Force Air Force Base, OH. September 20



There's a few more I plan on running, but haven't signed up yet. I told my friend Louisa, I'd run the Space Coast marathon with her, in November. That's in Florida, so it didn't take much convincing.
 I'd also like to find one in Wisconsin, so I can visit my sister and precious baby nephew!

How was your NYE?
What are some of your upcoming races?

  4. Very happy that your knee feels better. Hope your run goes well today.
    Great job setting all those goals for the year. That will definitely keep you motivated. And I think I'll probably see you at the Run the Bluegrass. I've volunteered the past 2 years but I think I may run it this year.
