Book Blog Walkers: March Weekly Check-in Mar 21, 2014

I did it!!! I walked my 1st marathon AND beat my goal time - I finished in 3 hours 3 minutes! My mom also did the marathon with me and she finished in 3 hours 12 minutes - I'm so proud of her!!! We had a great time and even managed to do a bit of sight-seeing in Washington DC during the weekend while we were there. 

Since we did so well and were able to finish this one, we decided to sign up for another 1/2 marathon - this time one for charity. We'll be doing the 1/2 Moon New York City benefiting Breast Cancer - it's a power walk throughout New York City starting at 10PM that we do in our bras!!! And my one sister will be joining us - it will be fun and I can't wait!!!

This week was a recovery week for me. I did walk every day, but they were very easy walks.

Here's how my week went:  

Mar 15:  Day of 1/2 Marathon!!! 13.1 miles - 3 hrs 3 min
Mar 16:  45 minutes
Mar 17:  30 minutes
Mar 18:  30 minutes
Mar 19:  30 minutes
Mar 20: 30 minutes

Mar 21:  20 minutes
How did your week go?

    Go Girl Go Girl

  2. Congratulations, Kristin! I love walking.

  3. Congrats to you and your Mom. The next one planned sounds fun! Least it will keep you cool! You sure motivate me to keep walking!

  4. That's so incredible and 3 hours is a really great time, considering you were walking. My goal is an hour for my 5k... which would be a 4 hour half marathon I think.
