Oh My Goodness. You guys. I just did something absolutely CRAZY.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working with the National Capital Area chapter of Team in Training to transfer races from the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco to the inaugural Nike Women’s Half in DC in April. In the meantime, I’ve been run/walking and just trying to get myself back into training shape. So today, a staff member from TNT calls me and asks me if I want to sign up for the NWM in April and the Rock ‘n’ Roll USA half in DC in March. Both of these races are races I was previously signed up for and then didn’t run. And today I get offered the chance to race both of them just 6 weeks apart. All while raising money for a cause that is truly close to my heart.
So I thought about it for about 30 seconds. I could either be nervous and only sign up for one. Or I could be terrified and sign up for both. So I did. This Spring, God-willing, I will cross the finish line of TWO half marathons. And I couldn’t be more excited about it. But you guys have to help me! Tweet me, text me, write on my facebook wall, call me, do whatever you have to do. Just make sure that I don’t give up! My official training calendar starts December 1st, but I’ll be huffing and puffing and willing myself back into shape until then.
And with that, I’m off to eat a healthy lunch before this afternoon’s run and/or Bikram class. Have a great day!!
