Ready to Glisten

This year, I'm ready to glisten.  OK, I'm ready to sweat.  I'm just trying to make it sound a little more glamorous.  ;)

I guess it took four years living in North Carolina to adjust to the summer's humidity, its heat.  I don't mind "glistening" in the early morning on a run.  In fact, I love it.  I am so relieved to be perfectly honest with you.

My marathon training starts next Saturday.  4 miles and then we move from there to November 6 when I run the City of Oaks Marathon with Kaylynn (and anyone else who wants to join me).  With wedding season, my baby, my family, yoga, and life, I know training for a marathon will be less than convenient, but oh so necessary and I am ready.  Ready to glisten. ;)

PS: Molly ..................................... a huge GOOD LUCK from me this weekend.  I will be thinking of you in Tahoe. xoxo


  1. I'm on week 3 of training for my very first ever marathon. (Well, I tried it once before...stupid injury.)

    But I'm glad to follow along. I need all the inspiration I can get!

    Good luck!

  2. I like the word glistening. It sounds so much more feminine than sweating like a pig.

  3. Thanks! My tri report is coming soon!

  4. you know, i have been feeling the same way lately. i actually do feel like a strong, attractive woman after a sweaty run or when i finish yoga in the morning and am totally "glistening" i love it! it makes me feel like i worked that much harder! my marathon training starts monday! so excited to get movin'. good luck!!
