As some know, I am part of the BLC15 Challenge...I am a Jade Dragon! The Maintenance team. We have 3 current and 4 former Dragons that are going to Miami this weekend to run/walk in the 5K, Half Marathon or Marathon, so I am Ghosting them (thanks Nan, I am copying and pasting from your blog) ;-).
Beth - Coopsmom...former Dragon
Suezette - Suezette-414 current Dragon and a co-captain
Jopa - Jopaph ...current dragon and former co-captain
Gail - Rhynic...former Dragon
Tammy - Tamtam64 ...former Dragon
John - Freedomstar...former Dragon
Christy - TOBEARUNNER...current Dragon and current co-captain in charge of challenges
What is a ghost you ask? Well, it is traditionally when a person/people who are NOT physically at the race run/walk at the same time as the people AT the race. Us Dragons have put our own little spin on it...there are SEVERAL of my fellow Dragons that are ghosting this weekend, each of us doing our own miles and times to get it done. So far these are the Dragons and the milage
Mike (MKKAYA) - Half Marathon
JoAnn (JOANN562)- 10k
Nan (SEYSARAH) - Marathon - Awesome
Penny (RUNNINGWILD)- 20k
Terri (TKAYSMILES)- 5k
Jackie (MISSJCISRUNNING)- 16 mile
Me? I am doing a Half Marathon...MY style. I was so excited when Mike told me it was ok to do it this way. I started today...I plan on walking 3 - 3.25 miles on my treadmill each day until Saturday...The actual race isn't until Sunday so I am giving myself until Sunday to make up any miles that are missed. I started today with a 3.25 mile walk...I Might have done more but my computer battery went down (didn't have the plug with me in the basement). I am doing it this way because as most of you know, I have had reoccurring problems with my foot so I am not pushing and only doing the MAX my foot will allow me to do.
I am so excited and proud of all our Dragons past and present (even though we believe that once a Dragon, always a Dragon!). Good luck and Safe Travels...praying the weather co-operates for everyone to get there!
