80 Days Until the Portland Marathon (Not That I’m Counting)
Since I went running yesterday morning before work and I won’t go running again until today after work it sort of feels like I snuck in an extra rest day!
Running before work is definitely NOT my thing. I don’t plan on doing it again anytime soon! I much prefer my after work runs!
Sucking it up and getting in my run early was worth it though because at night I got to meet up with 3/4ths of my grad school crew for a farewell dinner.
Peta, Bre and I (along with our fourth grad school BFF, Shaundi, who couldn’t make it last night) met in 2009 in our Intro to Graduate Studies class.
I’m not sure how, but it simultaneously feels like FOREVER ago and just like yesterday that we were walking the halls at our university together.
I’m sad that Peta is leaving us to move out of state, but it’s for an exciting job opportunity that she really deserves!
Bre ran the Princess half with me back in February. I’m trying to get her to sign up for the Fort Lauderdale half this fall 😀 #PeerPressure (do it, do it, do it!!!)
Speaking of races, only 80 days until Portland! This weekend I’ve got my first ever 15-miler on the schedule and I’m already excited about it!
No worries Portland, I picture myself crossing the finish line during every single run : )
I’m most excited about the tree seedling, although as Amy pointed out, I may not be able to bring it on the plane. If I can, I definitely plan on planting it at my parents house (since I live in a condo).
What’s the coolest race swag you’ve gotten? Do you keep all of your shirts?
