Magazine Article + 3 miles

December is upon us and that means 5 more days until CIM. 5 more days till I can SLEEP! I am so shocked that it’s already December though. Where did this year go? I can’t wait to do a year recap post, or goals for next year. My mind is already spinning!

So I feel like a complete tool for posting this, but I was featured in a magazine, Los Angeles Sports and Fitness about my blog this month. I’ve had some requests to read the article and see it close up so with a little help from some technical people, your wish is my command. :)

Click Here to Read the Article. It’s a PDF so it will open on your computer.

This morning I got up early and went for a three mile run. Still very tired, but seeing the movie The Blind Side last night didn’t help. It was such a great movie though and I’m really glad I went to see it. Sandra Bullock is amazing in it and the story is obviously really great. I didn’t cry as much as I thought I would, usually I’m a waterfall in ANY movie, so I though this one would get the tears going, but I did cry at the end. I really recommend it.

It’s so weird how last month I could easily run 6-8 miles before work anytime and now I’m really struggling with the shorter distances. I’m not really even in taper since I haven’t really even been in training. Using Malibu as a long run between CIM and Long Beach was a good idea, but man, that course really beat up my body. Well I guess running three marathons in three months is pretty much going to beat you up. I can’t even imagine how some people do more than three in three months, or run one every weekend. That’s so insane.

So before I leave for CIM on Friday night, I have a giveaway and also a goals post! The goals are basically not to die. Come on legs, start feeling better. PLEASE.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself. Three marathons in three months – that is crazy. I need at least 2 months of recovery to feel 100% again!

    But…it’s really amazing that you’re doing 3 marathons in such a short period of time. You should be incredibly proud of yourself! And you’ll really be able to relish your recovery time…talk about deserving it!

    Hey Danica – your legs will be fine come race day. I know they are wimping out on you now, but that’s because like you said Malibu really beat them up. Anyway, take it easy these next few days and you’ll be fine!

    Hope all is well and good luck this weekend!
