Keepin' it Real

Whoa, its been awhile since I've posted; I've got to change that.  I have been overcome with allergies.  Yes, all you non-Iowa readers, its allergy season here.  I don't understand, because I've only ever been hit with hayfever in the spring, but its supposed to be one of the worse allergy seasons around. 

So that little tidbit only leads me to my next topic: training for my 5K.  Well, its not going as well as I had hoped, but I am still trucking along.

In addition to sinus-clogging allergies, I was also thrown by having my parents in the area for the last few days.  You can see that I skipped out on Sunday and yesterday for that very reason. 

On the positive side, I have realized two things that will help me train better:
1. I prefer running with an arm band that holds my MP3 player.  I had never tried one before Monday, but really loved it.
2. I prefer running in the dark.  This makes scheduling jogging times more difficult, but on Monday I went out around 8:00 pm and flew through that mile and a half.

Also, when I am not jogging, I will be consuming massive amounts of Ginger Chews:
I'm addicted!
