How I set my running and fitness goals for a new year and what you can use to start. |

If you know us at all, you’d know right away that Kaleb and I are both people who love to be outside. We love exercise and we love adventure. Kaleb usually does several bike races a year with a few different teams; and I try to run a few races every year.

For the past two years, I’ve run the half-marathon for the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, which is held here every year around April-May.  The first year was rough.  I didn’t train regularly and the weather that particular day was cold and rainy. I think that was the coldest I’ve ever been in my life simply because I had to run 13.1 miles in it. The second year I decided to get on a better training plan so that recovery would be easier. After the race last year, I felt great; and the weather cooperated nicely (you never know what the weather will do in Oklahoma). I felt prepared and my body recovered nicely.

For 2013 I decided that I’m up to a new challenge. I am going to (try to) run the full marathon this year in Oklahoma City, OK. My plan is to work my way up to 15 miles and see how I feel before telling people I have to talk to every day (not our blog readers). I will keep you posted on how the process goes: the good and the bad. Above is a photo from my first training run for the season of 6 miles with the OK Landrunners.

I also decided to post a photo of my new favorite running pants: C9 Pants by Champion. They are lightweight, have a fleece lining, and feel silky-smooth on the outside. These were a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law, but she got them at Target. I am in love with these.
