Motivational Monday and Handana Winner Announcement!

Good Morning! Happy Monday everyone! How did your training go this weekend? I managed nine hot, humid, sweaty miles with the Fort Worth Running Company training group for the Dallas marathon. It felt great to get up early and get it done, but it wiped me out for the rest of the day. I think I need to work harder on fuel and nutrition. It will probably make a big difference in my energy levels after the run.

I had a lot of time to think out there during nine miles and this thought crossed my mind.

When I am running, I really feel like me. Even if it is hard, even if it sucks, even if I have exercise-induced coughing fits (yeah, that happens now), when I hit the pavement I become me. And when I neglect running for too long, there is something missing and I feel like I lose a part of myself. Running is not something that I do. It is big part of who I am.  

Without further ado, I am excited to announce the winner of my Handana giveaway! I'd like to thank Handana for sponsoring this giveaway and everyone who entered.
