TGIF … What’s Up with These Little Pumpkins?

No running yesterday per my coach. Even though I had a pretty awesome 4-mile run on Wed. with no ankle pain, she thinks I should still give it some time to heal completely. So instead I did 30 mins on the elliptical while watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

I will get to run again and do a 5-miler on Saturday  : )

Just got this in my inbox today:

It feels like forever ago that I signed up to run the Princess Half which will take place in Feb 2014.

After I ran my first 5K I decided that I wanted to run 13.1 and I thought Princess would actually be my first. Then I received the opportunity to run the Fort Lauderdale Half as an ambassador… and how could I refuse?

There was a long period of time that I obsessed over the Princess half though. I must have read a billion blogs about runners who completed the 2013 race as their first half marathon. That was actually my first foray into reading running blogs : )

I’ve been pretty tired this week. So tired in fact that this morning when I went to get in my car I thought, “what are these little pumpkins doing on the ground?” …They are acorns…


I guess it is possible I am not just tired but completely losing my mind! : )


What is the farthest you’ve signed up for a race in advance?

Have you ever run in a Disney race?

    Princess was my first race this year! My very first half! It’s such a fun race, you will LOVE it!

      I can’t wait! 🙂 It is going to be my first time running with friends and it’s at Disney, so how could it be bad?!

    Awe, have have! I can’t wait to follow your training again and get a redemption race out of this one!

    Many of my friends have run Disney…it’s just too expensive for me to get into though! Maybe someday!
