1. This weekend I will be running my 3rd Publix 1/2 Marathon right here in my backyard. The first one I ran was my first 1/2 marathon back in 2009 when the race was still sponsored by ING. Publix did a great job last year and I am looking forward to it again. The really fun part is the race literally runs right past my condo. And the most, most fun part is that P just got a bib # and decided to run.
The convo actually started a few days ago when a free bib came up. I said the race wouldn’t be in his name technically…but he quickly said, “But I still get the medal?” Ah, a man after my heart. He’s learning quickly.
I would like to run with him the entire time but he says I don’t have to because he will slow me down. It’s technically a low mileage week for Big Sur training and it wouldn’t hurt to take it easy. And I would LOVE to run the entire thing with him. So that is currently my plan. Run with P. No time goal whatsoever. Have fun. Take it easy.
2. I joined the Run it Fast Club today. I’ve enjoyed the blog for a while now (inspired my bling roll that I still need to figure out) and wanted to support the cause and meet more runners around the country. You don’t have to run a certain amount of races or a certain distance, just enjoy running. And strive to be better-in whatever way that is for you personally. Pretty cool. I’m member #104.
3. We skipped winter. For reals. And it seems like we skipped Spring. I had hoped we’d have another cold snap before the end of the month but I guess not. The race directors have sent out advisory warnings for the weather on Sunday because we haven’t had heat like this yet. I think we broke a record today too. Yes, it is gorgeous out. But I don’t want to think about how hot and humid it will be in July if it is already this hot…
