Fitness Friday: Double Digits & Sweat Pink!

I'll be honest. With how busy things have been around here coupled with the terrible, wet weather we've been having, I really haven't been running since the 10K at the beginning of the month. I feel....sluggish. The reality, however, is that I have a half marathon in ::does math:: really freaking soon. Two weeks and one day, to be exact. Basically, I need to get my ass in gear and jump back on the training wagon. My last long run was 8 miles, so tonight Sarah and I will be tackling 10. My first double digit run! Far from the first for her, however. I think she's just coming to make sure I don't die. ;-)

Despite the horrible training schedule I've been offering up to the running gods, I was accepted as a Sweat Pink Ambassador! Hooray for all things pink and tough and girly!

I love their mission...

"We believe that kicking ass is best done in pretty shoes. We’ve learned that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities. We concede that sometimes it takes hours to get ready, but we’re also no strangers to just rolling out of bed and going. We’re convinced that we run faster in pink shoelaces. We believe in pushing ourselves, and we believe in giving ourselves a break, too. We’re all about the rush of endorphins and the thrill of the challenge. We’re all for looking great and feeling even better. We’re committed to finding our best fit, and making it stick."
Sweat Pink is part of the Fit Approach community; a community built on support for health and fitness of all types and levels. I'm so excited to be part of this community, represent Sweat Pink, and share my newbie running story with others! Check out the Sweat Pink community on the blog, follow on Twitter, and check out Facebook.

Armed with my fancy pink laces, I'm ready for tonight's run. Hopefully, I'll have good things to report for next week as I get closer to the big day!
