Happy Birthday To ME!
A friend posted this to my FB wall and I couldn't be more in love. Anchorman is my FAVORITE movie and I just had to laugh at this birthday wish. So I thought I would share it with y'all!
I am spending the morning watching live coverage of the Rock N Roll Raleigh Marathon finish line and it's inspiring, to say the least. It reminds me of why I started running and the joy that can be found there.
I have two updates in my upcoming race schedule. First, I was scheduled for an Olympic Triathlon on April 26th. I checked and they are running a Sprint Tri at the same time/location so I asked to be switched to the Sprint. I haven't heard back yet but I can't imagine why they wouldn't let me make this change. I feel like I can reasonably finish a Sprint with my base plus two weeks to get back into beast mode. It's 750m swimming, 16.5 miles biking, and 3.1 miles running. Totally a doable challenge (I hope). The second thing I am thinking of signing up for is the 16th Annual NCRC Classic 10K on May 18th. I need a 10K or Half time to get me out of the last corral at the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare over Labor Day and the cut off for submitting a time is June 1st. These are both non-medal events (boo - I love my bling) but both will serve a very useful purpose in my training and for my mental health.
My personal calendar year really goes from birthday to birthday, so today is the first day of my new year and I plan on making some much needed changes!
