Reboot [verb ree-boot]
to make a change in (something) in order to establish a new beginning.
For those that need a quick catch up - it goes something like this:
I put my Pasadena, Maryland house on the market and was training for a marathon and 50k. The house went under contract. I was under a great deal of stress. I got sick. I lost a bunch of weight. I moved. I gained the weight back (along with a bunch of its friends). I got depressed and frustrated.
Today, I am settled into my house in Hagerstown, Maryland. I have a crossfit gym that I LOVE in Frederick, Maryland; Odin. I am trying to get my diet in order with the help of Amy at Kindred nutrition. Naturally, I am back to marathon training or, what I prefer to call, getting my running legs back.
All I was missing was a really good goal. So, I registered for the Blue Ridge Marathon and made the decision to up my game this year.
As of today, I have 250 days to do the following:
- Get my running base strong and consistent.
- I see a lot of treadmill drills in my future.
- Crosstrain consistently.
- Nutrition. Nutrition. Nutrition. Like they say, athletes are made in the kitchen.
- Lean out and drop the unwanted “friends” that I gained. For every pound lost, it means three pounds of impact that my body won’t have to contend with when I’m coming down the mountains at Blue Ridge.
The ultimate goal - a Blue Ridge Marathon PR.
I will not be doing this alone though. I will have the amazing support of my friends at Odin Crossfit, a kick *** dietician - Amy with Kindred - and all of you guys to keep me in check.
Let the fun begin!
