Sorry I've been MIA...does it seem like once summer rolls around things are crazy 24-7? I mean, we've been gone so much that I only had to run the dishwasher once last week...coming from a home that runs the dishwasher ONCE A DAY! Yikes! I'm enjoying this new work schedule and having an extra day off, but those 12 hour days are taxing.
On an exciting note...I BOUGHT MY PLANE TICKET FOR VEGAS TODAY!!!! EEEEKKKKK! I was planning on running the Las Vegas Marathon in December...I've booked my ticked and went to the site to check out the details (I've run the rock n roll chicago and have stalked the site for a few other races) and imagine my crushing disappointment when I realized that THERE'S A TIME LIMIT OF 4:30 for this race. Are you effing kidding me?? Even if the stars were to align, that would be shaving 29 minutes off my best marathon. Hell. But, I didn't train for that 4:59 marathon...maybe I could train and do it?? I don't know what to think. Lucky for me, the next price increase isn't until September, so I have a little time to ponder this situation. I could go and run the half, but I really want to run the "strip" and that is mile 14-26...
what do you think??
On a running note, I've been getting some serious runs in...my co-worker has been doing some speed work with me at lunch time and I'm rolling with my new motto and "making uncomfortable my friend"...I mean, what part of running so hard you can't breath and you feel like you're about to die isn't awesome?? I'm super pumped for my half this weekend in Charlovix this weekend with the EPIC running club...along the lake, a local brewery that night...it should be an AMAZING adventure! ANd the best part is the FORECAST! It's my fave type of running weather (50-60's) and I'm hoping to crush my PR.
Anyone else running Vegas??
What races are you planning??
Hope you have a great week!
