All Set to Rock 'n' Roll...

I am registered for the race.  I have my airline tickets.  I have a room.  The room was WAY cheaper than I imagined.  I am so excited.

So I went and bought a new Nike + thing yesterday to go with the new iPod I bought 2 weeks ago.  On this morning's 6 mile run, it kept stopping.  I have no clue what that is about because my old one never did that.  It was also extremely incorrect, so I will have to calibrate it with my garmie.  

The 6 miles was good this morning.  I threw in some hills.  And some trails.  And some nice smooth paths.  It was good.  My times are getting better for some reason, not real clear on why.  Maybe I am just happy to be running after all the injuries I have had in the last year.  This is the first time I have run more than 5 miles at a time since June.  I hope I can just keep increasing the mileage.  I would like to get up to running 13.1 or more on my training runs, and then maybe the half won't feel so hard when I do it.

That's great news! I'm glad to hear you got everything set up and saved money on the room. It sounds like your running is coming along nicely, too. It's great to run without pain, huh? :-)
