This month I ran 140.56 miles compared to 122.09 in February.  December 2013 is still my best month with 142.39.  This month I was so close.  Dang, if only I hadn’t missed my 10 mile run on Thursday. Oh well.  Definitely another great month.  Yesterday I ran outside again and it was just perfect.  Felt so good.  Spring is definitely here.

I ran one race:  Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle.  I got a PR!  Very happy about my time.  I can’t wait to run a 5K and see how I do.  I think I will run the Run to Remember 5K on May 3rd.  I’ve ran it in the past and have had a great time.

ultra_marathon_50kThe Chicago Lakefront 50k is on Saturday.  I’ve been checking the weather channel and it is supposed to be 45 degrees in the morning.  Definitely good running weather.  I did my best with keeping up with my training plan.  My coach told me that this week I need to focus on resting, recovery, and staying positive.  I always struggle with the latter but yesterday’s race did send me positive vibes that I hope will last all through the week.  Plus, I am off for Spring Break so I will definitely rest and relax.


I’ve enrolled at the SESAME Program at the University of Chicago to take classes for a Math Endorsement.  I am excited about it!  I need to take 8 classes and then I will have an endorsement to teach math to middle grade students.  I will be in class on Wednesdays from 5pm-8pm.  My first class starts on April 2nd and ends on June 11th.  The next session runs for two weeks, Monday-Friday, from 9am-12pm.  Then they also also another session from 1pm-4pm.  I don’t think I want to be in class all day for two weeks but I will definitely take one class.  If I take one class per quarter then I should be done in 2016.  Ha, seems like a long time but time sure goes by fast.

Two weeks from today I’ll find out if I got in the Bank of American Chicago Marathon!
