First of all, I am thrilled to “unveil” and brand new look for my blog! Many thanks to the fantastic Natasha at My Cute Lobster for working so hard with me to create the brand new look! For all you bloggers out there I highly suggest Tasha! She was so wonderful to work with!
I’m also excited to be a part of two great online blogger groups!
Looking forward to connecting with more great bloggers all over the world!
Ok so despite it only be in the 2nd half of January I’ve got spring fever. Winter isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! We were reminded of that this weekend and last night when we got another few inches of snow.
Anyways…. I’m still loving my early morning treadmill runs. Too assist in the strength training I am sticking with the barre classes at The Daily Method and shooting to attend class 2-3 days a week. My classes there are in addition to my runs and are not a substitute for them to help me get stronger and increase my flexibility.
As I continue to aim for a stronger and injury free running season in 2014 Healthy Running Mom and I have signed up for 2 local 1/2 marathons!
Why so early? Well it seems that all of these races have a price increase after January 31st so we look at it as saving money! I’m all set to run the North Shore 1/2 Marathon the first weekend in June and the Chicagoland Spring 1/2 Marathon in Schaumburg! Love finding races that are out of the city!
We will see what else gets added to the race calendar! Do you have anything on your race calendar for 2014? To all my runners and racers out there, how do you stay strong to prevent injury?
