The Bachelor/ette stars are staying in shape this holiday season with races, races, and more races.
Molly and Jason are registered for the Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon on December 3rd in Las Vegas. According to the Twittosphere Ames Brown and Ashley Hebert will be tagging along as well. (Sidebar 1: If you’ve seen my previous post I’m sure her ‘cupcake’ JP will be flying out as well. Sidebar 2: Molly and Jason aren’t the only Bachelor/ette couple racing together. This past weekend Chris and Peyton completed the Andrea Holden 5k race in Chris’ hometown of Dennis, MA.)
Back to the Mesnicks: Molly and Jason did the Las Vegas Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon together last year. See below for pics of their 2010 escapade with a finishing time of 3:08:33 (14:23 mile pace). Now they are setting a new goal and working with Brooks Running on following a training plan. Their goal pace this year is 10:15.

Molly and Jason’s Training Plan:
I was thinking of following Molly and Jason’s plan for my first half-marathon! Thoughts? 🙂
🙂 Yes, it’s a great plan. It incorporates rest days, cross training and speed work. Plus, you can adjust it based on your goal pace. On shorter run days I would also try to incorporate some running drills and/or core work (sit ups, crunches, etc) like these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcH97Dx8VCk Thanks for the question!
