If we were having coffee today you would be sipping it alone because today my “coffee cup” is filled with an Oolong tea, The Skinny to be exact. The mild smell of it drifting out from my cup has an earthy and almost flowery smell. The smell of orange and ginger that are prominent in the unbrewed loose leaves seems to dissipate once the boiling water hits the mixture. This little tea boasts its ability to aid digestion, and I am feeling rather healthy just thinking about it. So, where does that lead us? Well it leads us into my current training project.
I am starting to train for a half marathon. It will be my first time taking this project on, but I am feeling rather excited about it. I did a test run at the end of December to see where I was starting out my training at. I ran 7.31 miles in one hour and twenty-five minutes. It feels like a good starting point. Now I need to set a training plan, increase my mileage, and tweak my diet. Anyone have any tips or know any resources (books…) that I could tap into for setting up and being successful with this project?
The other big event that happened since we had coffee last is of course Christmas. This year my family and I went to Mexico for the holidays and it was wonderful. Here are a couple pictures of the adventure.
Well, my cup has run empty and I haven’t even heard from you yet. How were your holidays? What’s new?
