Making a Comeback

The whole concept of not knowing what you’ve got till it’s gone could not ring more true to me than it does now. I’ve missed my Fit Chick Diaries! I feel sharing this aspect of my life with whoever stumbled across my site helped keep me on track with my goals and aspirations. I got bombarded with a load of craziness this summer, which made this all move to the back burner. But no more!

Over the summer, my husband took an internship in NYC and I had quite a bit of time to myself. I ran 20+ miles per week…not bad for a girl who used to cringe at the idea of a light jog! My longest run was 6.2 miles – a 10k – but I have yet to do an actual race!

My current goal is to build up my endurance and complete a half-marathon this spring or summer. I haven’t registered yet because I still am not sure which one to enter.

I have quite a bit of training to do and, unfortunately, I live in the arctic tundra where we had 6 inches of snow fall already. I’m not letting the bitter winter hold me back, but I did ask for warm running gear for Christmas! Let’s see if Santa was paying attention!

Anyways, any tips you can give this long distance newbie would be much appreciated!
