Running a 1/2 in a pool??

Monday, October 29, 2012

I had signed up for a virtual 1/2 marathon.

Basically it is a fundraiser that will give me a shirt, medal and bragging rights without them having to take on the cost of putting on a race. Pretty smart actually.

I'm thinking about doing in the pool. Running something like 400 laps (I may or may not have gotten the math right) in the pool instead of going out in this yucky weather again.

Has any of my Spark Friends tried this before?? I can't be a pioneer in this.

But if I am do I get any kind of cash prize???

But if you have taken something like this on any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks OFFANDAWAY!

I knew I couldn't be the first to think of such things.

I would do this race in a heartbeat if they were closer!

    Hmm. I would say you get "Most Unusual Location for a Half" prize, but as that may or may not be a category, you might not get anything other than bragging rights.

Perhaps contact NASA. Maybe some MIR astronauts may want to join you in the wierdness?

I survived!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

But barely.

The 1/2 was horrible for me. I had a lousy night sleep, Day One of TOM and pouring rain. I hate to say that I only did 9 miles of the 1/2. I developed two blisters and decided it would be dumb to keep going. It was super disappointing. I was heading towards a PR and my feet said no.

The Dawn of the Dead Dash was fun. The fact that you could get brauts and alcohol *before* the race says something. They encourage people to not take it seriously and just have fun. The volunteer shift was a good time. I needed the silliness after earlier that day.

Sunday I thought the Woodland Park Zoo Dash *started* at 8am. But no. Packet pickup was at 8. So getting there at about 6:30 wasn't the best idea. I pulled my hood over my eyes and managed to catch a nap before the race.

The costumed kids were super cute and the money goes to the zoo. Can't beat that!

Oh, wait. I can.

The largest shirt they had was XL. And with some boxing it fit w/o breaking any obscenity laws!

I got home this afternoon and haven't done anything since except some reading, some TV, some kitty petting and a nap.

I'll go back to work tomorrow and rest up.

    Bummer on the half but I'm so glad that you can take your disappointments so well and keep moving on! I love the Woodland Park Zoo. I would have loved to particpate in that.

No wonder your kitties were holding you down after a weekend like that!

I know the secret!

Friday, October 26, 2012

The jokes about what Victoria's secret is has been around as long as the company has.

But we ladies know. Wearing something matchy-matchy AND sexy can give you a little extra umph in a regularly meh kind of day.

I thought of that phenomena this morning. I needed to layer and was looking for a shirt to wear under my sweatshirt.

I found a pink shirt that was being handed out during the 3 Day Walk that says "Find Your Strength".

Yes, it was from Expedia. No, this isn't an endorsement.

Unless Expedia wants to give me free trips, in which case....Heelloooo sailor!!

Anyway, the shirt to me is a constant reminder that I am strong, but that I can't just leave it at that. I need to keep working at it to see what new strengths I can find in me.

Well, that and to find the strength to *not* smack around annoying co-workers. But that is another blog post....

Have a great weekend!!

    Thank you - I loved your blog - and your positive spirit! My fave t-shirt (from breast cancer support) is "Yes they're fake - the real ones tried to kill me!"... shows they can take some things, but not our fighting attitude!
