I’ve been very excited about training for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. My team and I finally started this season’s training! On Sunday, I joined my team for a 40 minute run (I actually ended up going for 44 minutes) at our old training ground in Watertown.

I feel much better than I did before, and I’ve been going to work and school, I just cannot seem to get rid of this cough! I’ve had plenty of time to sit around and plan and think about my next big event, though, so that’s a plus. Here are my options so far: Read the rest of this entry »
