I had an AWESOME run this morning along the river. I felt fresh, strong and wanted to keep going. I pray I feel that way on Sunday morning when I lace up my kicks for the Chicago Marathon. Maybe there is something to this whole taper madness.
I had to stop myself from going further!
The view of the river relaxes my mind. I forget I have a million things to do when I’m out there running. Yikes!
It’s a good thing I’m on a runners high since I just added two more races to this year’s calendar. Gulp! Later this month I’m doing my first relay – the Atlanta Marathon Relay on the 30th. I’m so excited because my sister, Nicole, my girlfriend, Melanie, and possibly my Aunt Kristi will be joining me. It’s Melanie’s first race - there’s something so special about that first one. I can’t wait to see her face when she’s done.
A week later is my Race & Relax on the Road event at the Rock ’n’ Roll Savannah Half Marathon. We’ve got such a great group of ladies running; and some fun events planned. After that I’m thinking about running the Atlanta Half Marathon on Thanksgiving morning, I haven’t signed up yet, but I’m tempted.
I did sign up for this one yesterday …
Renee Ross from Cutiebootycakes.blogspot.com convinced me that South Beach is the place to be in December and that we NEED to put this on our calendars. Hello! She had me at beach. Registering for this race has me even more motivated to find my missing abs and move from good to great. I foresee a new bikini in my future – gasp!
So, that’s 1 full marathon, 1 relay, and 2 half marathons (possibly 3) over the next 3 months; and I’m excited for them all! While I’m definitely going to enjoy the moment I’m already thinking about next year’s race calendar. How far in advance do you plan your race schedule? I’d love to know.
A wonderful 4 mile run.
