Gas coupon

Ok folks I realize I didnt keep up on the gas coupon before.  To make up for it here is a sheet of .12 and .20 cent coupons  These coupons are valid till March 10th, 2012 and will be accepted at most SA stores (.20 coupon must be used at locations with a wash).  Also remember most SA stores in the metro also double competitor coupons on Tuesdays.  Enjoy.

Get Lucky 7K training

I have been training with a purpose lately.  I signed up around christmas for the Team Ortho Get Lucky 7k race.  I have been focusing mainly on speed training as I have always been a slow runner.  Today I did my first long slow distance run and went the full 4.5 miles or 7k oops :D.

This has me thinking if maybe I shouldn't find a longer race to run sooner than I had originally planned.  My plans were originally to do a half marathon before the end of 2012.  With these big leaps forward in my running endevours I am thinking about signing up for the Red, White and Boom race on the 4th of July.  I think I could manage to train for that race as its about 5 months out and only 3 times further than I am currently running.  My biggest concerns are that because I am such a slow runner I don't know if I could finish that long of a run in the alloted 3.5 hours.  Theoretically at the rates I am able to run at today I could finish with a half hour to spare but thats cutting it a little close for my liking.  Plus if I take too long of a walk break I could end up being picked up by the sag wagon.
