It’s been a little while since I shared a Musical Monday post but after last night’s Super Bowl performance I feel inspired. Bring on the Destiny’s Child, baby! Talk about a song perfect for my running mix. Bootylicious wins every time.

And so it BEGINS. After a lengthy ordeal with my lower back, I am now cleared to begin running again. Just in time, too, because I have 3 months until my first-ever half marathon! I’m excited but a little nervous. I don’t think I can fully comprehend running 13.1 miles. I’ve never run over four so it’s a bit too much of a stress for my imagination just yet.

I can visualize finishing though. I’m definitely doing this. It’s one of my 2013 Goals so it will be done. Period. How are you doing on your 2013 goals? Making progress? Need to look at them and remind yourself what they were? Take this as your reminder :)

I’d love to hear any tips on running long distances, what gear to choose and how to run in winter weather.

Bring on the advice!

P.S. This week I will be sharing what an average day for me looks like food-wise. I think it will be a video post. Stay tuned!

I really liked their song "Bills, Bills, Bills". Admittedly, I didn't watch the half-time show, because I switched over to Mexico vs. Dominican Republic in baseball. I'm a bit of a sports junkie.

Are you running the Cap City Half here in town? I need to start training for that too!

I should say so! I haven't gotten into baseball but I do like going to a game or two when I can. I like watching soccer on TV. You are probably one of the few men I know that skipped that half time show!

Hi Jess! Yes, that's the one! We should train together when it gets warmer :) How many halfs have you done?

Yeah, that would be great! Zero halfs - this one will be my first...if I can bring myself to train in this weather.

Yep, that's the hardest part for me too. If we buddy up, I bet we can do it! Email me: katebfinley@gmail.com
