I Could Go For Miles and Miles and Miles

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately.  About running. 

What I want to do.  Where I want to go.  How I want to train.

And I think I have finally  made some decisions.  Some decisions that will help me get focused. 

Because running is all about feeling good and having fun.  (At least it is to me!)

So, I have opted out of the half marathon in April.  I thought long and hard about it and decided to compete in another 10K before I take on a half. 

It is the right thing to do.

I have decided to follow a training program very similar to Caitlin's which can be found here.

And have been doing a lot of research on every thing from clothes, to music, to fuel.  ( Hi.  I'm Kim and I'm obsessive)

That all being said - Here is what I have planned (so far) for 2011.

May- 10K
September- 10K
October- Food and Wine Festival Half Marathon in Epcot!! ( so excited about this!)

I plan to throw a couple of 5Ks in here and there - but nothing is set in stone yet.

But for 2012 - I've got some big plans!!

February- Disney Princess Half Marathon
April- Nashville's Rock and Roll Half Marathon ( no better place to run than my favorite city!)
October- Food and Wine Festival AGAIN. 

And then there are a couple shorter distance runs that I would love to do.   Who knows... the sky is the limit, I guess. 

At least until Kev cuts me off from spending money on race entry fees.

I guess having running as a hobby is better than collecting garden gnomes.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.  :)


  1. I think your decision to postpone the half in order to get more 10k in is very wise. I myself (with the anemia and whatnot) am currently in a position to possibly re-evaluate my april 10k and maybe get a couple more 5ks under my belt, since my running regimen (as well as my body) has been weak lately. i will probably follow your suit.

  2. I can't believe you're coming to Nashville and I get to see you run! It is so EXCITING!!! I am also spacing out my running experiences - about 10 years apart! Love you - Sandi

  3. I'm thrilled that you are planning so many Disney runs!! I plan to be there to cheer you on!! You go girl!! Love, mom
