If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some sneak peeks from BlogHer, but it’s now been a good week since coming back from Blogher in New York, and I finally feel like I have landed. Attending a blog conferences is so much fun, but also pretty intense and can be somewhat overwhelming at times. There is a lot going on, so many things to learn, so many things to see and so many new people to meet, and so much fun! This year, BlogHer was in New York and I was not complaining. Continue reading
I did it again! I signed up for the San Francisco Half Marathon. Last year I went to BlogHer right before my race and prepped really
nicely horribly with hard concrete conference floors and wine for days right before my race. Mhm! You read that right. I came home around 8.30PM Saturday and got up 4.30AM the next day a few hours later to run the race. Needless to say, it was not my best decision or race, but it was my first one and I finished! And who can resist this view during a race?
I am going to BlogHer again this year as well (yay for New York!), but I checked the schedule and it finishes up a week before :) Which reminds me, I should do a recap of last year if anybody is interested? It was my first big blogging conference and I really liked it!
Last year was also my first time running a half marathon, which you can read more about here and here. I haven’t been working out as much as I did around this time last year, but I feel more prepared this time around just knowing that I am actually able to cover the distance without passing out!? I’ll be using April to get back into pre-race-training shape. Anyone else running a half marathon this spring/summer?
I created a 8 Week Half Marathon Training Program last year and I think I’ll use the same thing this time around with a few tweaks her and there. I really want to improve my time from last year so I think I’ll add more strength exercises in there too. Any extra advice on preparing for my next big race? I am going to make a 30 day prep plan and then tweak my running plan. Keep an eye out for the full plan soon :)
