We decided a while ago that we were going to go on two trips this summer - one to North Carolina (the Raleigh/Durham area) and another to Seattle, but we didn't set dates. I've been filling up my race calendar and other things have been popping in too, so we're finally making plans!
We still don't have exact dates for the NC date, but we're going in June. Not the weekend of June 11th, since I'm running the NYC Mini 10k that day. In July we're heading to Seattle, getting there before the 17th, because I just signed up for the See Jane Run Half Marathon!! I'm really excited for this because not only do I have three half marathons on my calendar, but I get to run in another State and I'm going to meet Mel! She even tipped me off to a great discount for my race entry (through a Groupon-like site) and it sounds like I'll get to meet other great bloggers and runners at the race! Not a bad way to start a vacation, right?
Woody is a bit worried that I'm going to over train and end up in the dreaded boot again (it's sitting in the corner of our bedroom) so while my goal is to run four half marathons this year, I'm holding at three for now. I have one in May, July, and October. I think these are nicely spread out and if all is going well after the July race, I'll probably sign up for Grete's Great Gallop in October, a couple weeks before I run the Detroit Half Marathon (which reminds me, I have to renew my passport!). So, other than a few short races I'll sign up for here and there, I think I'm all set for now!
This is totally random, but Woody got me some flowers from a bodega the other day. Last night, while eating dinner, we noticed they looked like this
They had drunk all the water in the vase and looked so sad! He re-filled the vase and this morning they're back to life!
