I actually read and enjoyed an issue of Runner's World.
This may not seem that bizarre. But for me, it is further evidence of my entré into half-marathon training land.
I was at Coleen's house and she had the latest issue on her coffee table. This particular issue was "The Weight Loss issue" but I don't even think that was why I found it so fascinating. I actually started thumbing through it kind of casually, la de da look at how strong that woman looks. Ooh look at that pretty running trail. But soon I was actually completely engrossed. I read about 5 of the articles and found a bunch of tips that I want to try.
This picture is actually from the February issue and a great article on the Biggest Loser. I thought it was pretty interesting. As someone who is heavy and working my way to running a half marathon, I loved reading about the contestants journey. You can read the article here.
Yes, Runners World, yes! I am dragging the day after a long run! How did you know?
Look how strong she looks. I know it's probably her job to look that fierce in the plank position, and it's working.
You can find the article pictured above about weight loss at this link here. I thought it had some pretty good tips in it. And once again, another person recommending you keep a food log. I know... I know... I'm so resistant to it and yet it's actually helping me.
For some reason I totally got excited about the prospect of a Disney Wine and Dine Half-Marathon. Maybe it is the prospect of Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast running it with me?
I'm such a newbie runner, that I definitely didn't think the magazine would be for me. It actually felt funny to all of a sudden be drawn to this magazine that previously felt completely out of my realm of interest like Auto Mechanics Weekly. And to change my mind about a topic, kind of like the time I picked up my niece's copy of Highlights just to reminisce and realized I'd officially outgrown "Goofus and Gallant"; our tastes can change.
Any regular reads that get you inspired?
P.S. I know this post sounds like a giant commercial for Runner's World. Trust me, I'm not suggesting you run out and subscribe, but I'm all about sharing good tips when I find them. I checked out the website and they have a lot of goodies online you can download for free! Yay! Free is good!
