I've Got a Good Feelin...

This song by Flo Rida "Good Feeling" pretty much sums up how I feel going into 2012!  It is also a great pump up song on the treadmill! 

My short break from training is over now.  It has been a perfect break because I am excited and ready to start training again.  I feel refreshed and ready to go!  I just got my January schedule from my coach.  What a great late Christmas present!  The workouts look challenging but looking at them gives me nervous excitement.  I know that if I can complete them I will be ready come March for the Phoenix half and Bandido 15k.  Looking even further ahead I am considering running the Grandmas Marathon in Duluth, MN in June.  I wasn't sure if I was ready to do another marathon but after looking at their website I saw this picture of my teammate Ariana Hilborn running a 2:37 there last June and thought "how could you not want to experience a feeling like this?" This picture pretty much sums up how running makes me feel most days!
