I'm in the home stretch - my last month of P90X!  I feel so much stronger....today I did Chest & Back - my total numbers were so much better than when I started.  I did over 250 pushups and over 40 pullups in 45 mins!  Not too shabby for a mom with a 3 month old!  I feel stronger with each workout but I'm still not completely satisfied and I know myself well enough to realize that the only way I'll get the complete results I want is to increase my running.  Not exactly easy in central PA this time of year....it is nasty out! 

As the end of P90X approaches, so does my time back here with my family.  I'll be moving back to SoCal in just 4 weeks!  I can't believe how fast this time has gone - before I know it we will be counting down the days to my hubby's return in February.  Going back to California is going to make running a whole lot easier - I'm actually really looking forward to it.  I have my BOB double jogger ready to go!  I can't wait to put some more miles on it. 

I am planning (along with Rachel) to do the Marine Corps Marathon next year....  But now I feel like I want to do more, sooner.  I think I'm addicted to working out - it could be worse, right?  I'll probably only be living in California for another year.  my husband is approaching his retirement from the USMC and when that happens, we plan to move back east.  Maybe before I leave, I should get a good San Diego marathon under my belt.   So now I'm trying to decide if this is something I can do in 6 months....train for a marathon.  I think I want to try....  Am I crazy?  Any good training programs out there?



  1. you're not crazy...go for it! i did the beach to battleship half around reagan's 3-month mark (albiet slowly...2 hrs), but it was a great motivator. congrats on your progress with p90x!

  2. Thanks Jen - I think I'm going to do it...and a tough mudder in May :) And by the way, 2 hrs isn't slow! Esp 3 mths post baby!
