Holy moly crazy lady :)

You have to get some Wright Socks. They are amazing: rain, sweat, 12 miles, etc. nothing will cause blisters!

runningwarehouse.com has some super great deals on shoes and clothes, and their free next day UPS shipping isn't too shabby either :)

My best running accessory is definitely my running buddy. I just run better when I'm running with another person.

First off, I love the new blog! I haven't been to your site for awhile since I am obsessed with Google reader! :-) 2nd I love Mizuno running shoes. I've owned a lot of running shoes and these are by far my most favorite! I also am pretty cheap when it comes to running clothes, so I like Old Navy's workout clothes and TJ Max has a good selection from time to time. Good luck, I give you tons of credit for running a few 5K's, then a 10 mile run and then a marathon! That's amazing! Best of luck to you!

You know my obsession with my Nike skort, and I was always and Asics shoe girl until my current Saucony pair. Oh, girl, I could talk running stuff with you for hours....don't get me started:)

Whoo hoo for being back to a 5 k!

Gotta love my Gmaps! www.gmap-pedometer.com/

Way to go Leah, very proud!

AJ said...

My favorite running resource is DQ. Run there, eat a blizzard, walk back. Fabulous.

fah said...

Yeah, me and running? Not so much. I just wanted to say good job and cheer you on!

Jennifer said...

I just wanted you to know I think you can totally do it and I'm really proud of you Leah!!!

AJ's comment cracked me up. :)

Seriously you are such an encouragement. You just had a kid and you're already kicking some major running butt. It makes my huffing and puffing 2 miles with NO kid look pathetic! Keep up the good work & keep blogging about it! You are my motivation girl! Thank you.

That will burn up inches like you wouldn't believe! I'm so proud of you!

What a calendar that will create! You go girl!

Dee said...

I've got nothing. But good luck. :)

Meredith said...

I have no tips and tricks, I am just totally impressed!

Chelsie said...

dailymile.com because I love to see that I am making some progress!

I hope to be signing up for some of those races as well, and this post just totally inspired me.

Kier and Nic said...

Oh, I also noticed none of these races are in Iowa...I think you should remedy this serious situation! :)

My favorite accessories are my husband and dog, because we always run together. It's "all or nothing" with the 3 of us. :-)

abby said...

Wow can I use YOU for my running resource when, you know, I actually start running? You're ambitious!
For now, I'm with AJ :)

Mary said...

I am so impressed by your plan! I don't know how you find the time to be a new mom, work, and then train for a marathon! Good luck on training.
