Walkers Beware

Today marked my first official day of marathon training and I logged a whopping zero miles for the day.
I’m off to an awesome start.

Although the Type A person in me hates to see the 0 next to the planned 2-3 miles, I’m not stressing too much. My plan is a six-monther and I don’t hit any new mileage markers until November.

What is coming up quickly is my first half-marathon since March. It will be my third time to run the White River race in November. The first year I was pregnant. Last year, included in the 99.9% of racers who beat me was a walker. . . a walker wearing jeans.  Jeans!
And now you know where the blog name came from.
I might make my own t-shirts. Instead of the “I run longer than the winner” one, I’ll have one that says “I run longer than the walker wearing jeans.”

I hope she is back this year. That jean wearer is going down.
