Yep, I'm up to running 1.25 miles at a time. I'm still a big old wussy, but I'm getting better. I've figured out that I have to add a quarter mile each week if I want to be ready for 13.1 miles the first week of December. I think that's totally doable.

By the way, today will be my 10th day in a row of running. I'm pretty darn proud of myself! And yes, the iPod Nano totally helps. I'm still completely loving it! I know they're expensive, but if you can get any kind of MP3 player I'd totally suggest it. It distracts me enough to push me to keep going.

And I've decided Paramore is a great band to add to my list. I put the Twilight soundtrack on mine and there are two Paramore songs on there. Then I was talking to a PR rep I work with and he suggested another Paramore song...totally good, I need to see if iTunes sells it.

Wowsers! I just came back to read your past posts and enjoyed readin g them all. Sounds like you are doing fabulous! I also can't believe your daughter is already 3 1/2. Gina and I were talking the other day trying to figure out how long we've known each other and I know that you were very newly wed when we met you. Doesn't seem like it's all that long ago.
Anyway, I am back at my workout blog because I am going to try to do a walk/run in honor of one of my friends who died last spring, and will be starting to train for it now. Thanks for keeping up this blog, I look forward to learning from you.

Congrats on your accomplishments with running. I am just starting to get back to running after about a 1 year hiatus due to pregnancy/childbirth . . my oldest daughter and I joined Girls On The Run at her school to train for a 5k in May. Totally know what you mean about the ipod - it keeps you going. On my running playlist is Kanye West, Papa Roach, Pat Benetar (All Fired Up) and tons more. Maybe someday I'll be able to run the length of my playlist so I can listen to it all!

Ahhh...Papa Roach...perfect! I like a couple of his songs and just got an iTunes gift card yesterday. I just might have to add those. :) Thanks!
