It's about time!

Next week officially starts training for the half marathon! I have a lot of emotions about it. I'm excited, scared, anxious, worried, ecstatic, the list could go on and on. One of the things I noticed that I'm a little worried or confused on is that some of the days/weeks have me running less miles than I would currently (not training). Do I hold back and follow the schedule or can I do more miles? I don't want to over-train but I'd like to at least keep up with my current pace and work my way up. Any thoughts?

A while back I posted on looking for a new gym bag. I'm still on the hunt, but right now I am looking at this one. I found it through Runners World, and while the magazine lists it as 'Pinnacle Performance Running Back Pack' I found it on Nike's website as the 'Cheyenne Vapor Running Backpack'. I thought the yellow would be great for any runner actually running with the backpack, but I just need it to store things. I think maybe the black or blue. I want something kind of stylish. Do you think the black could pass for that?


  1. CUTE backpack!!! :0)
    You are going to do great with your training! I would follow the schedule as much as you can cause you don't want to overtrain and cause injury. good luck!! :0)

  2. I have the black one and I love it. It is very comfortable to run with and if you are looking for something to hold your things, this one can hold a lot.
    It does say "man" on the label but I think it's just as fine for girls and rather stylish too!

  3. Did you end up buying this pack? I read some reviews that it is on the big side.
    I'm only 5'3" so I am interested in knowing if it worked out well for you. (Or if the bag only works out well for men)


    1. I did not get this one. I got a bag from 31 Gifts to use instead.


I'd love to hear from you!
