I feel like time has been flying by, deadlines fast approaching, and I have been doing nothing.

There is little more than five weeks until my next race.  It's not a long one but it's one that I have done several times and I want to PR.  My best time at the Monument Avenue 10k is 1:00:52 (9:49 mile).  My goal for this year is 59 minutes (9:29 mile).  Since gaining twelve pounds over the course of the past couple of months, this goal may be more difficult that I originally intended it to be.  OH, the challenges of being lazy and gluttonous.  It's a good thing that I have finally settled on a good pair of running shoes!  We will be spending lots of quality time over the next five weeks.

My next race is the Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon, which is a mere 14 weeks away.  I am really, really excited for this race because it will be my second half marathon and, as long as I don't die on the course, it will be no problem killing my last PR.  I have to admit, I'm really awful at sticking to a training plan.  I usually print one out, post it on the wall next to my treadmill, and proceed to ignore it.  Well, not entirely, I reference it to see what my longest run should be for the week and then I try to get that one done but that's it.  I still don't understand the speed work that they list on there...

So that's all my running countdowns for the time being.  I really want to sign up for more races but alas, the wedding planning is getting in the way and spending money is frowned upon when I'm supposed to have mucho money saved :(  Speaking of, there are only 240 days (roughly 34 weeks) until I am Mrs. Munoz!! 

Also, 15 weeks until I'm the big 3-0 and 28 days until...

It may be worth the midnight screening
What are you counting down?
