Shuffle on Down the Road

This post will serve two purposes:

First, I need to praise again the benefits of Jared's training program. I am up to 8 miles on my long runs, 4 miles on my tempo runs (10-minute miles) and 2.5 on my sprints. I'm finding that my runs are getting easier all the time. August 9 is the date of my half-marathon, and I will be ready.

Second, I finally gave in and bought my first iPod. I've been using an older model that a friend gave me, but it's very clunky for running (and its tendency to tug on my waistband has nearly caused a wardrobe malfunction on several occasions). Because I'm looking for an exercise iPod, I went for the shuffle (which you can get at a 48 percent discount on I can't wait for it to arrive.

I am not a runner. Really. (Read my sweet sentiments on running here!) That's why I'm so thankful for Jared's help. All that to say: If I can run, anyone can!

I know! I thought about going with a different color, but I loved yours so much I thought we could be shuffle twins. :)

So, hate running but you WANT to run? This sounds familiar.
