I'm still not signed up for a race... I've been contemplating either doing a triathlon or even another marathon. Half-marathons are getting pretty easy and I'm looking for something more challenging. My easy runs are 3-milers and I'm hoping to kick those up to 6 miles. I could easily do an hour run if I stop being so lazy.

Other thoughts... I've been pretty upset about my weight gain. I've gained a good 10 lbs since Dec 2010. I don't like this. I've been trying to cut down my food intake, but it's hard. I don't think I eat that bad to begin with; maybe I should start a food journal just to see, but I HATE those things. I hate counting calories. I just feel like I should be more fit since I'm running more, but it's just not the case. I've always worked out, either doing the elliptical, rowing, weight training. I'd do short 1-mile runs and I liked the way my body looked. Bah. Maybe it's my age?? lol.

Anyways, here is another favorite from Maui:

Three Palms.

Damn you, Nike!

I entered into the Nike Women's Inaugural Half-Marathon, DC lottery and found out yesterday that I got DECLINED. I'm pretty bummed, as I really wanted to run this race! So now I'm trying to lift my spirits and figure out another race to run. Hmmm...

Anyways, we just got back from Hawaii and it was pretty fantastic. Here are my favorite shots from the trip:

On top of Haleakala. Felt out of this world, like we were on Mars! Amazing.
Pretty palm at sunset.
Hibiscus, enjoying the afternoon sun.
