Okay…today was a good day.  The red cup is back at Starbucks and so are Gingerbread Lattes.  I am on generally one of those people who counts down to Christmas.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  But I like the fact that it is now November and the holidays are upon us.  It doesn’t get better than this time of year!  I made a point to leave my apartment a few minutes early so I could swing by Starbucks.  For some reason when I drink coffee my appetite is altered for the rest of the day.  It KILLS my appetite!  Maybe it is the caffeine?  I hardly drink any caffeine.  Who knows.

IMG_6915Today was Day 2 of my half marathon training and on the plate for today was a three mile run.  I got out at lunch and ran the trails behind my office.  They are pretty hilly and since I threw out my back last week, this was my first day running in about 10 days.  It was also a lot hotter out than I had expected.  Wow…these are a lot of excuses, huh?  As you can see from the blurry picture above, I averaged a 9:55 min/mi pace.  I prefer to average about a 9 min/mi pace, so I was a tad disappointed.  I realized I need to take the first mile a bit slower so I don’t burn out so quickly.  This will be crucial for my half marathon.

Speaking of training, I signed up for the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon in June last night.  I am really excited to try another marathon.  I ran my first on in 2005.

Time to eat some dinner…  🙂
