I’m so glad March is almost here and I’ve got so much stuff to look forward to. While March means lots of training it also means lots of college hoops and a baby shower for Big Sis. Also, I’m going to pace a work buddy at his very first 5K. I have been helped at a lot of races from various pacing buds and I’m stoked to finally return the favor. In addition to pacing, I’ll be volunteering before and after that very same race. St Patty’s Day pay it forward, here I come!
This weekend is the mother of all Tampa running race weekends – GASPARILLA! ARGGH! If you recall, in the past I ran the Gasparilla full marathon before they canceled it two years ago. Fortunately, they still have four other races to choose from. I feel fortunate that these distances aren’t ones I typically run. This means guaranteed PR on my first ever 15K and it’s only my second time running an 8K so we’ll see how that goes. Thus, I selected the mini challenge (Select 55 Mini Challenge, just to name the sponsor I suppose). I thought about doing the all four races thing but then I remembered I was not insane. Ha!
I’ll be lacing up for the 15K on Saturday and then again on Sunday for the 8K. I’m happy to share these events will all of my local running friends. It really is like a big party for runners. Plus, the pirate theme is a total bonus. When else can you say booty all day long and not get really strange looks? Ken, don’t answer that.
That’s all for now folks. Hope you all are having a great week thus far!
LOL thanks for calling me insane! 🙂
Soooooooooo jealous! Have fun and better yet, dress up for one of the races!!!
Yeah all 4 is a little insane…you could do it though!! Have fun! It looks like a blast!!
Have a fantastic time 🙂
Sounds like lots of fun happening for you! Yay!!
15K is a great distance. One of my favorites because just when you start to suck wind it ends which is different from the 13.1 race.
Go out there and kick some BOOTY! Yeah I said it!
i totally believe in the birthday MONTH. mine is also february (official bday was sun). cheers to birthday months! i think that's a good sign you celebrated well that you're tired 😉
What, no photo evidence of 'too many drinks' night? Fine. I love the 15K as well, there are so few of those. The 8K, well this is a little like water boarding…or so I hear.
Sounds like a good time…..ARRRGGGH!!!!
Damn misleading title………….
yes – I agree – who are you calling insane!?
