1. I told yall my race was tough. Holy terrible pics. At least I can fake it at the post-race picture.
2. I have a local half marathon on Saturday. The Monster Dash. To say I’m a little freaked out by this race is an understatement. It’s the first annual one in Atlanta. They changed the course yesterday. YES. YESTERDAY. It went from a really cool loop around the city to a double loop of crap. Should be interesting. At least my costume rocks. You didn’t actually think I’d share with you yet, did you? :)
I have no serious goals for this race. This upper respiratory crap is not a whole lot of fun with asthma so I am winging it. A sub 2 would be great. A sub 1:50 would be insanity. But again, who knows how I will feel. I’ve been on meds since Tuesday, so hopefully by Saturday morning this crap will be out of my lungs.
3. I LOVE Halloween (see above). But I have found the older you get, the harder it is to find an appropriate party to go to. So, I dressed up my NUUN tubes instead (they are having a fun contest). It’s a play off of my NUUNHTC video, and I would love your vote. You can vote every day if you would like.
4. I don’t know how I forgot to share this, but I was featured in Atlanta’s InTown Paper this month (on page 16 if you want to read). They did a feature on health enthusiasts/runners with goals and I talked about my 50 state and 12 in 2012 goals. They definitely cut out some of my interview (that included a lot of good plugs for Team in Training) but it was still cool to be featured.
5. It pays to be generous. I donated to Becca’s fundraiser and ended up winning 3 things from the raffle! It’s my first pair of PRO Compression socks, first pair of INK N BURN arm sleeves, and another fabulous TeamSparkle skirt and leg sleeves. Pretty awesome. I definitely got way more back than what my donation was.
6. Me and P are headed to Auburn for the game after my race. I WILL NOT be a fair weather fan. Auburn might suck this year (to put it nicely) but I will go enjoy one of my favorite places in the South. War Eagle.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THOSE RACING THIS WEEKEND! Especially anyone up North with this crazy hurricane!
