It’s Wii Tournament Time

Jaime’s back in Kirkland!

April 22, 2008

Training has been as much theory as practice these days. However being back in Jaunita, Kirkland inspires me to run. Sassy and I go out to explore and reclaim our turf. So many new shops! Before our run Sassy and I get a coffee at Urban Coffee Lounge where we watch women go in and out of Ambrosia a new medi-spa where botox is performed on site. It’s fun to see who goes in and how they look when they exit!

I tried my old loop last week and realized how hard even small hills are going to be on this half marathon. I may need to make a deal with myself that I walk up all hills the day of the run because Kirkland has some tough ones! 

Will all our runs have a beer garden at the end? a.k.a. (Most of) Team Pacemakers at the St. Patty’s Day Dash

Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Novice Training Guide

I am newly minted 30-year-old now preparing to run her first half marathon.  I am not a former high school athlete nor a  former college athlete, but I am dedicated to being an active person for my entire life. I want to keep this one body fit and able to serve me as long as possible.  The furthest I’ve ever jogged previously is 7 miles in the Chuckanut Footrace in Bellingham last July. 13.1 miles presents a big challenge to me.  Unfortunately to date my training has been all mental not physical and as we all know mentally training to run 13.1 miles will not get you to the finish line.  I’ve told friends, family, and co-workers I am going to finish this race, but I still haven’t run a mile in preparation.  Now with less than 15 weeks to train it’s time to find my inner Rocky or face the embarrassment!  Thanks to teammate Megan I’ve found a training plan to use from Hal Higdon. Tomorrow I will begin with the scheduled Tuesday week one 3 mile run.

Hello World!

Hello and welcome!

We are a team of project management professionals dedicated to increasing heart health awareness.  To demonstrate our passion and commitment to good heart health we are each training to complete the Kirkland Half Marathon benefiting the Hope Heart Institute in May 2008.  

Select a team member’s name to the right and follow them through their journey towards 13.1 miles.  I think you will come away better informed in heart health and ammused as you watch us push ourselves to be fit enough to complete a 13.1 miles run.
