Let the Training Begin!

It's official my Wine & Dine training has begun. I am so excited to start training again. I realize that I said in the spring that I was glad to not be training for an event. But what I realize now is that I have to have something to train for to keep me motivated.

 I totally slacked off on running, averaging at most one run a week (after I dropped out of the the streak that is). I need the accountability of having a goal in mind. Apparently, I'm not a meandering runner. Meaning as long as I have a goal or a race in front of me, I'm golden. If I don't have a big race, I tend to not be as diligent as I need to be.

 This training will also help me get ready for the Route 66 Half that is just two weeks after Wine & Dine. Glad to be back at it.

 How about you? What races are you training for? Who started Wine & Dine with me today? Anyone want to tell me that I'm not the only one that slacks off when not training for a race?
