Guess who has a race on Sunday??
You know you wanted to see this picture again. #scaryselfie
Yes, this girl! (And this girl! Go guess her time!)
It’s the same 5-miler race I ran last year when I was pregnant with Evan (kinda funny that it will be his first race as a “participant” and as a spectator) and I’m hoping for a PR. Last year I ran it in 48:38 at 11 weeks pregnant. I HAVE to run this one faster, right?
At the very least it will be cooler and less humid. The weather this weekend is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL. <–About damn time.
Honestly, even if I don’t – I’m super excited because this kicks off race season. In addition to this 5-miler, I have 4 half marathons on my calendar (can you say addicted?) starting with the Baldwin Park Half Marathon in November.
Paula and I were seriously considering running the St. Augustine Half — but the thought of driving up there the morning off and having to deal with pumping and all that jazz does NOT sound like something I want to deal with right now (especially when I’m sleep deprived), so we’re putting it on the back burner. Maybe next year (it really does look like an amazing race). Instead, we’re running this (relatively small) race that is super close to home. Sleeping in your own bed before a half marathon is the best.
After these 4 halfs — I’m not sure what the future brings. I’m hoping that 2014 brings new races and new PRs, but mostly just a lot of injury-free running! I have to admit, one thing that is ALWAYS on my mind is Marathon #2. I’m hoping it’s Chicago, but even if it’s not – it’s happening next year.
What races are YOU doing in the next few months??? Anything I need to put on my calendar next year?
