Well it’s August already. Smack dab in the middle of the sweltering heat of another Florida summer. And smack dab in the midst of another training season! It took me up until now to get my mojo back after the marathon. I took a break (and got married :D) I really had a hard time getting my head back in the game though. I call it PTSD and I don’t want to misuse that considering all the serious issues some face coming back from much worse than a silly race. But I guess when you do something as huge as your first marathon, and a major one like NYC everything else seemed not worth it.

….until now! What better way to get out of your funk you ask? Meet the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon and 5K “Aunt Catfish Challenge!” Oh sweet sweet swag I love you. Why do we run for shiny things?? I should also mention that yours truly designed the medal and challenge prize this year….YAY! This is exactly what I needed to get back in the game. How could I not run this? I get to see hundreds of fellow athletes wearing my artwork. Be still my heart!

So get ready for some updates. Just not today…it’s a rest day! Tomorrow I am scheduled for 6 miles. Fingers crossed I still have it in me. As I’ve said, it’s easier said than run.
