Half Marathon Training (Or Lack of)

In the beginning of August, I signed up for my first half marathon. You can read about that HERE. I was feeling so motivated and inspired. A lot of people at work are running it and I just felt like I could do it if I set my mind to it. I set a training schedule for long runs and I completely messed up because I had a long vacation in there. What I originally planned is in black and what I've done so far is in pink
Long Training Runs:
August 31st - Swampfoot 4 Mile / 4 Mile Obstacle Race
September 7th - 6 miles / 6 miles
September 14th - 7 miles / Nothing (vacation)
September 21st - 8 miles
September 28th - 9 miles
October 5th - 10 miles
October 12th - 11 miles
October 20th - RACE DAY!
 I know that I can push myself physically and I CAN DO THIS! The next few weeks are going to be crazy but I'm going to stick to my run schedule and I am going to do my best. I may have to add a half mile or so to each of my runs to stay on track. I'm really looking forward to this half because it is international!  
I will be running this weekend one way or another! I'm going to attempt to run tomorrow morning because we are celebrating my 30th birthday tomorrow night so I may not be in the best shape Sunday morning. ;)
From our friends house in California! So sweet!
Sorry for my lack of posts lately. I've been out of town and things have been hectic. I'll be recapping my Swampfoot 4 Mile Race next week along with our amazing vacation to California!
