Goals

After a weekend of eating Halloween candy and junk I have resolved myself to eat clean! (at least until Thanksgiving Day) because I really want to look like this: 

Who wouldn't want Jamie Eason's arms? I do realize that it takes A LOT of work to look like that. Being really strict with what you fuel yourself with and making sure you get your workouts in everyday. (I'm sure a couple of cycles of steroids wouldn't hurt either) but I will forgo the steroids and keep reminding myself to... 

I am really itching to do another marathon! Training keeps my mindset in the right place. The holidays are really hard for me. (I have no willpower when I'm not training for something). I am thinking about doing the Las Vegas Marathon, which is December 7th. I said I would never do another race that is run by Devine Sports again...they aren't very organized in my opinion, and the post race food is lacking in nutritional value...but Vegas is close and my parents only live an hour and a half away, so I wouldn't have to get a hotel room, which will save me $300. No brainer, right? 

What I really want to do is run my 40th marathon on or as close to my 40th birthday as possible. So, that gives me 32 months to run 30 marathons....Is that crazy? I totally need a sponsor!

I'd sponsor you if I had the money. 30 in 32 months. WOW. I's love to read about that challenge.

THat is insane! First of all, I am with you on the first picture. She has a great body. As for the 30 marathons in 32 months that is definately ambitious but would made a great contribution to your story!

I just wanted to give you further comment on your quest for 30 marathons in 32 months in order to run 40 by 40. Don’t you think that is a great title? 40 by 40! I think you should seriously consider broaching this with companies (potential sponsors)with that pitch and then write an article or a story etc.. Here is another idea, why not put it out there for other Mom’s who are approaching 40 (people in their 30’s) and get them to do the same thing. I am 35 and will complete my first marathon in January so I would love to try and reach 40 by 40 ! It could be fun to have a website or group etc.. I hope you don’t mind me tossing these ideas at you….isn’t this how all great ideas get started? If you feel like bouncing more ideas try me at candjwhiteman@rogers.com

I'm with Run Mommy.... You really should start a blog and all that other stuff, I think that is an amazing goal, you can do it too. It will take so much dedication and time but I am certain if anyone can do it, you can. I have 8 1/2 years to achieve my 40 by 40 but I really think I might try it. What a great idea... I am thinking I better be done having kids to reach that one cause I am only at 6.

and yes I want that womens body. She is freaking hot... my twin sister left yesterday and we have a bet going till Thanksgiving, so I am trying really hard to not eat any junk till then, then take the weekend off and then start up again till the first of the year. I am hoping to lose the weight that is weighing me down.

You go Girl!

Hi Stacey, I saw your post on the Eat Drink Run Woman blog. Did you know that Devine had to take on a partner in order to put on the Las Vegas Marathon this year? Their partner is the corporate owner of Elite Racing, and in 2010, Las Vegas will be a Rock n Roll event. If you are thinking of running it, check out http://lvm.createmybb.com. It is a message board for Las Vegas Marathon fans. Lots of good information to be found there. It is also a good place to get support and information for your quest to run 30 marathons in 32 months. You won't find a sponsor, but you can get some great advice about how to keep the cost down.

Good luck!
