Kick-Off Time

It's kick-off time for a lot of things in the month of September...kids go back to school (yeah, 20 mile zones again), college football (I don't actually have a certain team I root for and being from Louisiana not quite ready to commit to that burnt orange team), but the most important thing this month is spring marathon training has begun.

Yipee!! Today was the first day of Project Performance (my running group). We had a great morning work-out. I'm not gonna lie when my alarm went off at 4:50am the first thought of the day was I have to wake up at this time for the next 6 months. I was a little nervous Monday night since I don't know anyone in this group and I've heard they're all FAST. Like I stated in another post I'm going to be the caboose for the first time in my life. I'm proud to report I am NOT the caboose as of today, granted this can all change on a dime, but I'm off to a good start. Ruth was kind enough to split us up into groups based on running levels. I say she was pretty spot on on this one. I am in the Aqua group. Not so sure about this name but it was a great group to run in the rain with and a few gals to push the speed limit.

It's going to be a great training season!!
