Forty 4 Forty!

Route 66 Tulsa Marathon

Route 66 Tulsa Marathon

Forty 4 Forty!

Have you ever set a goal so big that scared you, but you were so excited that you could not sleep at night?

I am two months from my 40th birthday and am celebrating 40 years of life by running 40 half marathons (13.1 miles) in 2014.. running 524 miles in timed races plus the training miles in between!

I have wanted to do something monumental for my 40th birthday and I love running half marathons which is where is this magical idea was birthed.  It is a big commitment for me and my family, but we are all on board.  I am going to blog my journey here and on my Facebook Fan Page. https://www.facebook.com/christilynn.org

In 2013, I ran 3 half marathons and 1 full. I ran the Dallas Rock n Roll Marathon in March, Cox Racing Services on Mother’s Day in Fort Worth, and San Francisco Half Marathon in June.  The Route 66 in Tulsa in November was my first full. Running has changed my life and made me realize I can overcome obstacles and become the best person I can be while here on earth. I hope to inspire others to become healthier through my journey of Forty 4 Forty!

I have mapped out the half marathons in my area and have begun strategizing the logistics.  I would love for you to support me in forty 4 forty with prayer, cheering, or actually running with me.  It is going to be fun and I look forward to the joy in the journey from Forty 4 Forty.  I vision new friends, belief barriers broken, and lots of fun through this phenomenal aspiration to run Forty 4 Forty!

Race 1 of Forty 4 Forty is in Mississippi Blues in Jackson, MS on 1/11/14 and Race 2 is on 1/12/14 is First Light  in Mobile, AL.  The others are tentative, but Rock n Roll NOLA is on the books plus 5 half marathons in 5 days in 5 states is scheduled for September.

2 half marathons; 2 days; 2 states

Exciting way to start the new year!

Favorite Running Bra


Wearing the best bras for support while running is EXTREMELY important as it is in your everyday life.  While I am running races, I see so many ladies running without appropriate support and it makes me hurt. Our breast are important and we must take care of them.


Benefits of wearing a good sports bra:

A good sports bra will minimize breast movement. Movement in breasts can cause the ligaments surrounding them to stretch and tear. With breast movement at a minimum, breast pain and premature sagging is reduced sustaining permanent damage.

A good sports bra will hold everything in place in a comfortable way and provide enough support to prevent damage from occurring.

A good sports bra will regulate sweat and temperature control.  Chose one made of dri-fit material.

A good sports bras can be very comfortable: If you are wearing the right sports bra while working out, you will be comfortable!

My favorite is the Enell Sports Bra and it is not sexy. This bra has helped protect my prized assets.  I endured pain and lots of savings to have unsaggy breasts at 39 and I am going to protect them to keep them peppy and fun.
