Well although I planned to write this about my first duathalon, I will touch on that but instead I will share my news!! The duathalong was a lot of fun and I am glad I did it. The race had a few issues, and due to construction they had to change the course slightly and instead of a 12 mile ride they had to change to a 10 mile ride. So we ended up with a 1 mile run, 10 mile ride, and 3 mile run. This was a fun challenge, although hot, but I am glad I did it and next year may enter the triathalon.

But now for my news....WINNER!!!

I am so excited to say that I won an all expense paid trip to the Marine Corps Marathon in 24 days!!! My favorite shoe store of all time, DSW shoes, had a contest and I entered a video of why I wanted to run this race. Besides being an amazing opportunity to run in Nation's capital, I knew this was a perfect way to mark the day that I changed my life and started running as this is the 2nd anniversary of my starting to run. Today the email came that announced that I am one of the top 3 winners!!! So I now have 24 more days to be ready to run my second full marathon...

Today is a GREAT day!!

See the link below and read about this amazing course!!
