I thought a lot about this post during my training ride today.
That's right, I am still riding my miles for the NYC Marathon, and I am definitely feeling sorry for myself. I know, I know, this is not a real tragedy. It feels that way sometimes, though. It feels like there is nothing worse than blogging about running when you aren't actually running.
I'm not reading other blogs. I'm barely writing my own blog.
But I am having a really huge pity party. There are balloons and everything.
I have started pulling myself out of the abyss this week, with very tiny baby steps.
With the exception of Disney, I haven't missed a training day. Heck, even in Disney I was covering the miles. I have started doing Power Half Hour as well. It is deceptively tough on the body.
I have been eating lots of cupcakes. Yikes. My daughter's High School Grad party was Sunday night and we had leftovers. They are gone now, have no fear.
I have started using my WW app again, and I never stopped using MFP.
I will finish the NYC Marathon, but it's definitely not going to be under 6 hours. It may be closer to 8 at this point and I don't even care. I just want to finish. I know I can finish. I may be slower than a snail in molasses but I will finish.
Sooooo here are some of my recent workouts.

What is something people might be surprised to learn about you?
I used to be a certified fitness trainer. For real. About 15 years ago, I lost over 55 pounds after the birth of my son. I got ISSA Certified and got a job at a Workout World gym. The manager that worked there at the time said some inappropriate things and I walked out and never trained again. I was wayyyyyyyyyy more shy then. I would never have walked out if it happened recently. I let my verification lapse and never tried to train again.
Yes! Jon BonJovi, Richie Sambora, and Joe Pesci, to name a few. Lots of celebrities come to the Jersey Shore.
More importantly, I met Jeff Galloway a few times! Oh, and Dan from Biggest Loser.

As a Skirt Sports Ambassador, I get to do a lot of fun things. Run in skirts. Do errands in skirts. Go to Disney in skirts. It really is all about the skirts. I get some free swag on occasion, I get a great discount, I get to share great discounts.... (use the code SSBMSR20 for 20% off any full priced merchandise)
Today has been the most fun, though, because I got to be Guest Instagrammer for Skirt Sports! In case, you missed them, here are the pics I shared with their followers today!

I started the day with my fourth Firecracker Five, a local five mile race. It's a very hilly race. I probably shouldn't have registered, with all of my aches and pains, but I couldn't resist!
We got there pretty early, so I had plenty of time to stretch my calves and my IT band, hoping to avoid any pain. I got my shirt and bib and then went in search of my friends.
