First off I have to give a big thank you to you all for the kind messages and comments on yesterday's post. You are the best! And now I feel ready to get back out there, keep my head in check and see what these legs can do. I know I won't be the winner, and that's fine. I guess now I need to figure out what is my ultimate goal and devise a plan to keep me working toward it and some day achieving it!
That racing hiatus I was on? Yeah, that's over. I am skipping the 5K I was looking at, but for good reason. Tonight I resume half marathon training. I can't believe I'm on round 4 of it now! Four? Already? Crazy! And what am I training for?
I gave in and registered yesterday! (Gave in? Ha! I was so excited to do it!) After hearing Stacie talk about it at our blogger dinner, and then realizing that Seattle isn't terribly far from Biker Boy's house, well, it just seemed like THE thing to do! We even got a hotel reserved last night fairly close to the finish line and expo. So I am all set - now I just have to pick out the outfit and do the training! Wow, this puts me at 8 half marathons for 2011 so far (and two already registered for in 2012). Awesome!
And so now how about a little looksie-poo at some of the official race photos from the Hippie Chick!
