Running Update

Just got my new marathon book in the mail today! It is supposed to be "The Ultimate Training Guide" by Hal Higdon (Editor at Runner's World Mag). I have been looking forward to the arrival of this book for over a week and Reid told me I should go run more instead of whining about my book. Thanks for the motivating advice. Not! 

I am excited to see what advice the book offers about diet. I always get bummed because it takes me a while to notice weight and inch loss with any type of exercise (due to the fact that I ruined my metabolism on a crazy diet in college). So, I will continue to run with the hope that my body is slowing jump starting my shape-up! I have upped my water intake to over 100 ounces a day. I still needing to cut back on the carbonation. An interesting discovery I made this past week is that I have migraine headaches as a result of eating corn syrup. Also, many people struggle with bad reactions to this substance, but do not ever attribute it to such an abundant ingredient. I have made the transition to organic brands (that do not contain corn syrup) and felt 100 times better this past week!
