Been a while...

So, I've been just barely keeping my head above water at work for the last few months.  I think by June, things will slow down a little and I can catch my breath.

Which is good because my official training period for Chicago starts on Monday, June 4th.  Heaven help me, that's just 6 weeks away and I am in pretty awful shape at the moment.  I've been working out 3 days a week consistently but that is nowhere near enough given the training workload ahead of me.  Time to kick it into gear - and somehow carve more time out of my schedule to fit in another day of running.

Also, I picked up a "groupon/living social" type deal around here for a 4-week women's fitness bootcamp.  Starts mid-May, Monday-Thursday, 5:30-6:30 a.m.  Heaven help me with that too, because I'm not really a morning person.  What can I say, I got sucked in by the good price.  And having someone kick my butt 4 days a week is a good thing.  :-)

Lastly, the lottery for the NYC Marathon is next Wednesday.  And again, Heaven help me if I get selected for it, because at that price, I'll probably feel obligated to run it rather than deferring to 2013.

Wow, asking lots of favors from Heaven today.  :-)
