My training officially starts Feb 22 and from then on i'll be running 4X a week!
Yaaay Lua! I am a runner and love when people discover running and get excited. I heard an Oprah quote once that said, "Running is a great metaphor for life, because you truly get out of it what only you put into it". If you have a good base built, you'll be fine only running once while you're in Jamaica. I'm running a 1/2 the weekend after my Vegas bachelorette party....I may still be legally drunk when I do it. LOL! What plan are you using to train with? I met Hal Higdon this year at the Chicago Marathon expo and he has some great plans that I've used for other races. Keep us posted! You'll cross the finish line of that race and be hooked:)
Theresa you rocked out a long list of wedding to do's. Way to go!!
For all of you ladies who are losing some serious pounds and toning up for your weddings, I'm super impressed! Keep up the good work!
Does everyone have their FI's wedding day attire already? We have looked a little bit but aren't sure what to get for him. I'd like him in a suit (since I already got the purple tie from Nordy's when I ordered my TTD) but he's worried he'll be hot. My dress is a little too formal to have him in a short sleeved shirt I think. Are any of your FIs wearing flip flops with their suits?
I also agree....having this forum, & this thread for that matter, is so nice to share in our excitement and planning!!
