Marathon in October

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


I finally after a couple months of not really running and only doing intervals decided it is time to get back on it.
So for the past couple weeks I have been running for distance. Today I finally hit 3.1 miles(5k).
now I just have to keep it up!!!

I put a couple tickers up to help me visualize my goals!

one for running and one for weight loss.

Now if only I can figure out how to quit eating when I am no longer hungry. (that is MY problem) I did some calculations and if I want to lose 1 lb a week I can only eat between 1500 and 1600 calories a day depending on my activity level!
I got the calculator here http://www.trainermomma.com/2010/01/figuring-out-your-daily-calories/ I really like her blog!

I have been trying to think of a way to keep up with daily workouts since it is so cold outside and to much snow. so far my best plan is to (on the treadmill) walk while watching my show and run during the commercials. The show that I watch EVERYDAY is "Days of Our LIves". It is a 1 hour episode so that to me is a VERY nice work out!
We will see how this goes.
I think to start with I am only going to do this 30 minutes a day for the first week and then 45 min the next week and finally 1 hour a day.
This starts tomorrow Wed 2-9-2011 !!!!!!!!

I can't wait for spring and summer! I really miss walks/runs with friends!
I miss taking Chase to the park!
I miss swimming in the pool!

I also REALLY want to start riding my bike again!

The Climb

Feb 5th 2011

bib # 492 Jennifer Cullum 12 min 26 sec!!!


The veiw of the building!

Today my team "I did it my way" and I climbed 41 floors/ 82 flights /789 stairs in the American Lung Association's Fight for Air Climb. It was hard but tons of fun! Physically my body was fine and did not have any problems but it was very hard to breath after about the 10th floor. Next year I will do more (and better) training.
I am not positive of my time because I did not set my watch....I was just too excited! I do know that it was between 12 and 15 minutes though which is GREAT because my goal was 25 minutes.
I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that supported me and donated to this wonderful cause that is very close to my heart.
If you would still like to donate you can! They are accepting donations until
March 4th!

5 mile road race

On Nov 25th 2010 (ThanksGiving)I did a 5 mile Road race called the DreamCatcher Clasic. My time was 53 min.


Edaville run! 11-13-2010

Today at Edaville I did 5.1miles in 54.96min...10min slower than my last one but I was extremely hot and it was a trail run through the Cranberry bogs (i am used to running on the roads). I must say it was the most beautiful run I have done though!!!
I ran this with a couple of friends from running club. My next road race is on Thankgiving Morning and it is also a 5 mile run...

While Bill and Chase waited for me to finish they wandered and played at the park...Here are a few pictures!
