13.1 - Here we go again!

Last January I completed my first half marathon and I loved it so much that I have foolishly signed up again to run my next 13.1 miles on January 30, 2011.  And the best part about it is that Ryan will actually be joining me this time.  However, Ryan and I run at completely different paces (I bet you can guess who is faster) and we won't be running side by side.  I'm definitely ok with that though as we both have a goal in mind for this race and I wouldn't want to slow him down :)

My plan was to keep up my running throughout the spring and summer and I managed to do pretty well in the spring but I have since dropped off.  I am definitely blaming  my lack of running lately on the sweltering heat we've had in Houston.  Even though it probably won't cool down anytime soon I hope to pick it up a notch in the next few weeks as I have a brand new toy to train with this time :)

Ryan and I have been eying the new Garmin Forerunner 110 since this spring and quickly snatched up a "his and her" pair when they became available.  I can't say I have used mine as much as Ryan but so far I'm impressed.  I love that it tells me when I've hit every mile, what my pace is, my heart rate, number of calories I've burned and then I can go online and map my run.  I must say it's pretty fancy and makes it easier to get out on the trails.

Here's to my next half marathon and I look forward to logging my miles and tracking my progress on here!
