Random running stuff

I have random running thoughts running through my brain, which is a fairly normal occurrence.
  • I have a half marathon on Sunday. I'm not that excited about it. I'm not sure why. 
  • I am excited about the medal and shirt, though. That's really the reason I signed up for this race. Darn you, sweet medal and equally sweet shirt.
  • I am also excited about my 5K on March 18. I feel like I'm getting faster (slowly). I'm not confident enough to push it on longer distances yet, but I want to see how fast I can run this bad boy.
  • I ran a 10K on Saturday. I didn't do my usual long run on Sunday (mainly because I wanted to sleep in, but also because I wanted to rest my legs a bit after the race). I thought I'd do a long run on Monday night, but due to laundry and other pesky household chores, I didn't. Now, I'm going to try to fit in one last long run (about 9 miles) on Tuesday night before a half marathon on Sunday. Hopefully, that still allows enough time for recovery and tapering. 
  • I joined dailymile. Run with me there. You can find my info in the right column of this blog.
  • Also, I joined Twitter. Yes, I did this at turtle speed. Follow me there. You can find my info in the right column of this blog.


  1. That medal is freakin awesome! You might have a guest next year for this race. Yep that is right, I just invited myself to Florida for a skull medal. :) Good luck. Hopefully you will be excited by Sunday.

    1. It makes me feel better that you'd travel great distances for this skull medal ... I wasn't completely insane. Although whoever thought of starting a half marathon at 6 a.m. is! I think that's the main reason I'm not excited.


Comments rock!
