Bring Your Own Toilet Paper!!

Yep, that's right.  The gross truth about running and porta potties.  I hate those things and I swore I would never use one but a funny thing happens after you've run 6 miles......... you've just gotta go and you DON'T care where it is!!!!

Last Saturday when we ran around Lake Hefner and I did 10 miles I had to use the porta potties.  I was lucky when I came to the first one and there was TP left but when I got to the second one it was empty so I had to hold it!!  Today when I ran I wore a "fanny pack" (another thing I swore I would never wear!!), and in my pack I put some kleenex which I was soooo grateful for!  Neither one of the porta potties had TP today but I was good to go!!

Okay, I know you didn't need to know that but I just felt like some of you would totally understand!!!

I ran 12 miles today!!!!!  Can you believe it??  This is my record and I am right on track for my marathon training!!!  It was very hard and I am very sore but I know that I can do it!!  I feel like I have some "nay sayers" in my life who don't think I can run a marathon in 7 weeks but those of you who know me know that that just makes me want to do it more!!!  To prove to myself that I CAN do anything I set my mind to!!!!  

Next week we are running a 1/4 marathon plus a 5 K which is around 10 miles.  Then the following Saturday we will be up to 14 miles and so forth.  I cannot believe I am going to run a marathon so soon but my body just feels like it is ready.

Hope you all have a great week!!

So we did it! We are officially registered for the Top of Utah Marathon in September. I have 9 weeks to train. This past week I was under the weather......... again........... so I was unable to run or even had a desire to run. Today is Monday and I am going to start fresh.

I have started "another" blog for my marathon training. If you want to see how I am doing with that then check out....

The Pink Runner

I will keep this blog for my weight loss with a little about my training. Hope you all have a great day!!

Updated Picture

Here is the latest pic of me. I bought this outfit when I was in Utah. Isn't it adorable??? I can only say that because I didn't pick it out!! I love it but it doesn't work very well on windy Oklahoma days! I felt like Marilyn Monroe when I was coming out of Sam's Club. :)


That is how I am feeling today. I don't want to work out. I am not eating right. Uggghhhh!! I have no desire to run either, which I normally look forward to. My DH and I are supposed to be training for a Marathon that we are doing at the end of September. Am I crazy?? Did I just say MARATHON????? Our 10K went AWESOME in Utah. The only thing was..... I had NO supporters!! Both sides of our family knew we were going to be running and were not able to come out. I was a little disappointed but what can I do. I kept waiting for someone to yell out my name or to meet me at the finish line but that never happened. I had my BEST time, too!! I ran the 6.2 miles in 58 minutes!! That totally rocked!! Anyway, my DH wants to go to Utah to do the Marathon there but I don't want to fly all that way to run a Marathon by ourselves. I would just rather do one locally where we can run with friends and have some supporters there. I hope I am not sounding too harsh, I'm just in one of those moods. I feel better getting it all off my chest. Thanks!

Our Hike

I just wanted to share this picture because I cannot believe how small I look in it. I honestly don't feel that small. Must be something with the lens.
