1) Spending time with my family.
2) Hanging out with my niece. She turns one this weekend!
3) Running a half marathon in a new state. HELLO Alambama!
So the game plan is this: Fly to Atlanta Friday after work. Saturday morning celebrate Emery’s first birthday. Super excited!!! Then Saturday after noon drive to Birmingham with my running buddy Brittany. The Mercedes Benz Birmingham Half Marathon is Sunday morning. After the race we will hightail it back to Georgia. What could possibly go wrong?
WELL, I have not run a single mile since the Goofy Challenge a month ago. Yes, that’s right I’ve been zumbaing (is that a word?) and strength training like crazy and have taken a break from running. Yes, I’m a bit nervous about how the race will go. I hope to do a quick run in the morning just to get my sea legs back, oh and also I need to break in my sweet new kicks… Bad idea to break in new shoes during a half marathon? I hope not!
I am so pumped to share with you the Mercedes Benz half medals, they look awesome! From what I read the course is a tad hilly but that the event is very well organized. I’m definately looking forward to stretching my legs out on the run. Stay tuned to see how the weekend turns out.
