Is today Wednesday? Oh man! I have done absolutely NOTHING since Sunday! I was only a little bit sore after Sunday's half, my ankles the most. That was strange. But really there is no excuse for not running except that I have been resting. Monday left me feeling a little lost not being in the throes of a training plan. I kept thinking, "Now what?". I want to do a marathon, a full 26.2. For some reason I am hesitant to commit. I think I am just scared. Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone! But after three days of thinking (and my brain is smokin') I have decided on a plan.
-3/21 Mercer Island Half Marathon with some local bloggers and buddies! Yay!!!! This MUST be my sub 2. AND this is my 31st birthday! Again....SHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! That my friends stays HERE on my blog.
-4/25 or 5/2 Full Marathon. The particular one is to be decided. I have wanted to do the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon (4/25) for years. I want this to be my first marathon. I am from Oklahoma and the OKC Bombing is an event that I remember well. I was sitting in Physiology class with Mr. Hula when the news came. So this marathon has special meaning to me. Not to mention I will have an excuse to travel home to see my fam, AND have a cheering squad, always a bonus. The other one that I could do is the Tacoma City Marathon. This one starts about 2 miles from my front door. They are one week apart. What are the chances I could pull off both? Hmmm.....could be possible!
And to all my new followers....WOW! Welcome!! If you haven't entered my Asics Visor giveaway you can do so HERE. I wore this visor (well not THE one I am giving away but its twin) during my half on Sunday and it was awesome! It kept the hair out of my eyes. It wasn't too hot! Sometimes when I wear my regular baseball type hat my head gets hot. The visor allowed my head to breath. It also worked to keep the sweat from running into my eyes, ouch! And the best thing about it....for one of my bloggy followers it will be FREE! :) Can't beat that! You have until Sunday Dec. 5.
Today I am grateful for:
My down comforter.
