January was a great month for concentrating on my training for the LA Marathon.
For my birthday present last year, hubby gave me a gift certificate to be coached one-on-one with my running coach. Though I started at the end of December, the majority of these coaching sessions have been in January.
These coaching sessions besides giving me one-on-one time with my coach to ask questions and get tidbits on how to handle different parts of LA Marathon course has helped me feel better about my ability to conquer this marathon. On our last run together, we ran an average pace of 11:59 which was the best I have run in a very long time.
Running with the SoleRunners has also given me the confidence as all the runners are so supportive and encouraging. And the wealth of information that you receive from running with other more experience runners is invaluable.
My Rodan + Fields business is slowly growing. Who knew that washing my face twice a day and sharing my love of the products would give me the time freedom to spend with my grandchildren.
In fact, I have been able to see several of my granddaughter’s water polo games. She takes no prisoners in that water. I’m so proud of her.
Will, my grandson, who runs with me is learning that training during the week is important and has stepped up his training. I understand it is hard to run by yourself everyday and for a teenager, it is harder. I can’t wait to see how he will do at the LA Marathon.
Soon my youngest grandson will be back playing baseball and with the ability to work my Rodan + Fields business on my iPhone/iPad, it will give me the freedom to watch him play.
